WATCH: Doug Ford Slams Ruling By Liberal-Appointed Judge, Says “I Was Elected. The Judge Was Appointed”

Ford refuses to back down after Liberal-appointed judge makes horrendous ruling on Bill 5.

In the wake of the ruling striking down Doug Ford’s Bill 5 by a Liberal-appointed judge (the same judge who ruled for Omar Khadr against the widow of the man Khadr admitted to murdering in Afghanistan), Ford has made clear that he will fight back.

In a press conference, Ford said he would invoke the Notwithstanding Clause (Section 33 of the Constitution), and appeal the ruling.

“I was elected. The judge was appointed,” said Ford.

RIGHT ON, Doug!!! Invoke the “notwithstanding” clause!!! The courts have NO business usurping the democratic process, and THAT is exactly what the liberals and their appointed judge are attempting to do, override our emocratic process!!!

Ontario Premier Doug Ford is quite right in appealing Judicial rejection of his Government’s recent legislation which substantially reduced the size of Toronto’s City Council. The cities and municipalities are creatures of the Provincial Governments. Canadian “psyches” have been “dissociated” by unrelenting propaganda directed upon them by an alien monopolized media while both public and private educational institutions have been infiltrated and subverted, especially by severing us from our historical roots or cultural foundations which we require as a reference point upon which to build civilization. The proper function of the courts is to adjudicate laws enacted by a properly… Read more »
