Thanks to Trudeau, we get Ford

RE: FORD GOV­ERN­MENT

The Hamilton Spectator - - Comment -

Read­ers should be flood­ing the letters col­umn. Doug Ford is the poster boy for chang­ing the first-past-the-post elec­toral sys­tem.

We can thank Justin Trudeau for this in­sult on democ­racy. Doug Ford was not voted in by a ma­jor­ity.

Judge Belob­aba gave a rul­ing that was well thought out. When one con­sid­ers that the GTA is larger than some Euro­pean coun­tries, us­ing the notwith­stand­ing clause is an in­sult to the rea­son­ing of the clause in the first place.

It is open­ing the flood­gates, sim­ple as that. We are a democ­racy — this is an as­sault on our sys­tem of gov­er­nance.
