An Ontario court has struck down a provincial government order that made some post-secondary student fees optional.

Last December, Premier Doug Ford's cabinet approved the order and later put it into effect in what it called the "Student Choice Initiative."

The Canadian Federation of Students and York Federation of Students filed a legal challenge, arguing the move was a politically motivated attack on student unions and services that threatened university independence.
