NDP Is Slamming Ford For Trying To Make It Easier To Pass Laws Without Public Input - 2019-11-11
Doug Ford is trying to make even more changes in Ontario, and this time, it will pertain to his ability to pass bills as fast as possible. Ford is planning to make it so that his party can put forth a proposal for 50% more night time sittings than is currently allowed in the legislature, making it so that a bill can be passed within two days, or practically overnight. Doug Ford's Ontario legislature changes will also include giving him the ability to go through multiple stages of passing a bill in just one day.
The speed with which bills could be passed will give Ontarians as little say as possible in changes that are happening in their province. The NDP will be the only party fighting against Ford's proposed changes, the Toronto Star reports.
"As it is, Doug Ford has done his best to prevent the people of Ontario from having any opportunity to weigh in on changes that impact them," said NDP House Leader Gilles Bisson in a news release.
