How lawmakers confronted a notwithstanding clause
Manage episode 346432057 series 1792955
The Ford government vows to roll back their back-to-work legislation as the education workers union agrees to stop striking. Co-hosts Steve Paikin and John Michael McGrath break down how Ontario's opposition MPPs challenged this attempt at using the notwithstanding clause, and how its deployment was not like any other this province has seen so far.
Then, a look at how Premier Doug Ford and Deputy Premier Sylvia Jones won't need to testify at the Emergencies Act inquiry. And finally, a quick reprieve from the two biggest stories of the province through a climate-adjacent private member's bill from an Ontario Liberal leader hopeful.
