In its ruling, the Court of Appeal for Ontario said the unexpected move did not interfere with candidates' or voters' ability to express themselves freely.

Earlier this year, Toronto council gave its city solicitor instructions to fight the council cut, including a challenge to Canada's highest court if necessary.
