Anyone else enjoying Doug Ford’s ‘wag the dog’ crisis about Toronto City Council meant to distract from his broken promises and petty grievances? Bright shiny trinkets meant to distract the easily distracted.

In an alternative universe, Queen's Park rose today--at a less ungodly hour--as Premier Andrea Horwath passed into law universal dental-care coverage. In our own timeline, we're up at 2am dealing with an attack on local democracy Let's get it right in 2022, folks!

From 12:01 through til morning, MPPs will be debating . Unlikely any PC MPPs will speak, so opposition will keep debate from collapsing. To the folks from Durham Region, send me your unanswered letters. I'll read 'em to your MPPs. jfrench-qp@ndp.on.ca

and have never been about "efficiency". They've always been about Doug Ford's petty revenge on his political enemies and the city that rejected him as mayor. If they weren't, why not wait until after the election and actually consult with people?

You’ve already spent more time reading this tweet than Ford spent consulting the public on his election meddling bill.

Elections have consequences. This is what happens when you elect someone with no experience and with no plan. Let's remember tonight, and never take our democratic rights for granted again.

BREAKING: Premier Doug Ford is the skipper of the SS Ontario. He and his complicit MPPs in Queen's Park have marooned the ship on the Island of Unlimited Lawsuits and will spend the next 4 years wasting everyone's time and money taking backward 50 years.

Replying to @BBRyder
Bottom lines: 25 ward election in Toronto on Oct 22. will be withdrawn. The notwithstanding clause is back in the closet, for now. The appeal to the ONCA looms. This might end up at the SCC, where I expect Belobaba J's opinion will receive more respect than it did today.

Doug Ford's wag the dog distraction #2: Doug Ford stops finance regulators from banning mutual funds that hurt investors. It appears that for the people means allowing dangerous and hard to understand investment products. For the rich.

this ruling takes the notwithstanding clause out of play, likely what the Court of Appeal wanted, i.e., they had a preferred outcome, then worked backwards to justify it. It's called a "legal fiction." Disappointment. The Court acted cowardly.

At this point, it shouldn't matter whether you are liberal or conservative. Doug Ford is creating chaos in Toronto City Hall a MONTH before an election. A judge has deemed the move unconstitutional. This is not the way a democracy works.

While Doug Ford is distracting Ontarians with , he just cut $22.7-million in new money earmarked for fee subsidies for low-income families. Who knew that for the people meant only the rich? The rest of us are f**ked.

How many millions of dollars in outside legal costs, travel costs for MPPs, overtime for Queen's Park staff and security, overtime and salary for political staffers, etc have Ontario taxpayers spent to save Toronto taxpayers $25 million?

Nothing says government “for the people” like meeting under the cover of darkness to strip millions of Torontonians of effective elected representation, then clapping to drown out the people you’ve shut outside.
