Urge your MPP to vote no

Standard-Freeholder (Cornwall) - - OPINION -

I am ap­palled by the ac­tions of our On­tario pro­vin­cial gov­ern­ment.

Pre­mier Doug Ford is plan­ning to over­ride con­sti­tu­tional rights by us­ing the notwith­stand­ing clause. If this leg­is­la­tion passes, it would set a prece­dent for On­tario and Canada com­pa­ra­ble to dic­ta­tor­ships.

How sad that this man could over­turn our rights, our free­doms, our con­sti­tu­tion to get what he wants. Ford has said he would use the same tac­tic if the courts should de­rail his agenda.

Un­for­tu­nately we are watch­ing a politi­cian sim­i­lar to what we have been wit­ness­ing in a coun­try south of our bor­der.

My MPP has a vote. Hope­fully it will not be a vote to fol­low the party line.

Please take a stand to stop this new law. Call or email your MPP.
