Rights, Schmights
« on: September 11, 2018, 12:39:23 pm »
Premiere Doug "Chuckles" Ford has revoked the Charter of Rights and Freedoms in Ontario so that he can slash the Toronto City Council during an election period.

Seems like something a good person would do.

Yes.  It is basically the "nuclear button" of the Canadian Constitution

This article has a lot of good info on the why's and wherefores of what Doug Ford is doing.
