DEL DUCA: Doug Ford Attacks Our Charter Rights Yet Again

TORONTO – Steven Del Duca, Leader of the Ontario Liberal Party, issued the following statement:

“Doug Ford will do anything to cling to power. Invoking the Notwithstanding Clause to overturn a court decision to protect our freedom of expression is outrageous.

This is Doug Ford’s latest assault on the Charter. Just like he attacked civil liberties by instituting province-wide carding, he’s attacking our right to free speech.

It took Doug Ford 415 days to deliver a half-hearted paid sick leave for essential workers, and only 48 hours to use the constitutional nuclear option to protect his own political skin.

It’s clear that Doug Ford’s only priority is saving his job through failure after failure. Ontario Liberals won’t stand for this assault on democracy and our courts.”
