This week, Ontario's Superior Court ruled Premier Doug Ford's plan to gerrymander Toronto's political boundaries in the middle of an election is undemocratic and unconstitutional.

So, Ford accused the courts of being undemocratic and threatened to invoke the notwithstanding clause to override the Constitution whenever he feels like it if courts keep striking down his laws as unconstitutional.

But don't worry, Ontario – the Ontario PC caucus is full of strong, independent-minded MPPs who will surely stand up to a belligerent government ignoring the courts and using strong-arm tactics its to rig a democratic election, right?
