Pub­lic sup­ports Ford’s de­ci­sion

RE: FORD GOV­ERN­MENT

The Hamilton Spectator - - Comment -

There is a great deal of com­men­tary about Doug Ford us­ing the notwith­stand­ing clause, al­though polling sug­gests the pub­lic has no prob­lem with it.

We now know that the use of the clause is not unique to Ford, but has been used sev­eral times in Que­bec, with­out much dis­cus­sion at least in the me­dia. Is this a dou­ble stan­dard by way of a char­ter pro­vi­sion be­ing quite OK for Que­bec but not for On­tario?
