If you want to be a backward uninformed individual based on repressed thoughts and selective interpretation of a book, home school your kids and stop ruining it for the general populous.  The decision on the sex Ed curriculum was beyond asinine and it astounds me that uneducated morons continue to be the driving force behind policy.

Starting to think Ford might be bad at this.

Dealing with the second objective, voter parity, and giving the Minister the benefit of the doubt that he understood that the primary concern is not voter parity but effective representation, there is no evidence of minimal impairment. The Province’s rationale for moving to a 25-ward structure had been carefully considered and rejected by the TWBR and by City Council just over a year ago. If there was a concern about the large size of some of the City’s wards (by my count, six wards had populations ranging from 70,000 to 97,000) why not deal with these six wards specifically? Why impose a solution (increasing all ward sizes to 111,000) that is far worse, in terms of achieving effective representation, than the original problem? And, again, why do so in the middle of the City’s election? [77]

The Canadian Charter of Rights and Fteedoms -- the Notwithstanding Clause:

WHAT IS IT?

The notwithstanding clause — or Section 33 of the Charter of Rights and Freedoms — gives provincial legislatures or Parliament the ability, through the passage of a law, to override certain portions of the charter for a five-year term.

Fedeli is scheduled to deliver the fall economic statement, the first budget document under Premier Doug Ford, on Thursday afternoon. It will unveil the PCs' short-term plans for spending restraint in the face of what Fedeli says is a $15 billion deficit inherited from the previous Liberal government.

Two offices facing cuts are those of the Environmental Commissioner of Ontario and the Ontario Child Advocate, according to government and PC party sources who spoke to CBC News. Both agencies are headed by independent officers who report to the legislature, rather than to the government, giving them an independent status similar to the auditor general.

Because really how important are children and the environment?

Hey, remember that stupid program where we taxed polluters and gave the money to home owners and small businesses to encourage green energy? Well, you'll be glad to know that it's going to be replaced with lower emission standards, no carbon tax and a system of giving tax payer money to polluters.

Oh, and a reminder to pick up trash. So climate crisis solved.
