Ontario / Toronto politics, protest dispatches
The long line dissolved into an angry mob who began chanting "let us in!" We have been assembled outside chanting and yelling for hours. The crowd has shrunk, but a dedicated bunch are still here being very loud.

Periodically opposition MPPs have come out to encourage us.

They're sitting for 3 more hours...

Ontario / Toronto politics, protest dispatches
Okay, so I've been outside the provincial legislature building for like 4 hours now.

Hundreds of ppl lined up to get into the public galleries as the PCs called a midnight sitting to force through a bill using the notwithstanding clause to cut Toronto council after the court found it abridged our constitutional rights.

They only let in like 100 people - who were soon kicked out for being disruptive.

TOpoli, event, ceci n'est pas une manifestation
Tomorrow (Saturday the 15th) the Ontario legislature is having a special session to cancel our municipal election in progress and force a new one, with new rules and boundaries—even though it infringes our right to freedom of expression.

We've had a lot of protests. Come out to Queen's Park at 11 for something else: a picnic! Pack a lunch. Bring your kids. Have fun.

TOpoli, ONpoli, event
There's a rally at 4 at City Hall* but I'm not sure how many protests I have the strength to attend in one day.

Speakers include Jen Keesmaat, Cllrs Mihevc and Filion, Bhutila Karpoche, Marit Stiles, etc.—generally NDP-y. Also Mitzie Hunter, who I've been steadfastly ignoring since she jumped on the Scarborough subway train to win a by-election

* Queen's Park requires permits a week in advance, so there wasn't time.

TOpoli, ONpoli, new news, chaos, dumpster fire, constitutional crisis
In response to a Superior Court judge finding #Bill5 unconstitutional, Doug Ford says he'll use the "notwithstanding clause" - a nuclear option allowing provinces to pass laws even if they have been found to violate Charter rights. https://www.cbc.ca/news/canada/toronto/toronto-city-council-cuts-doug-ford-reaction-1.4817125

TOpoli, ONpoli, news, !!!
In an "unprecedented" decision, Justice Belobaba overturns Bill 5, which would have cut City Council from 47 members to 25 and redrawn the wards in the middle of an ongoing election campaign. You can read the decision here: https://www.scribd.com/document/388248581/Superior-Court-Ruling-on-Bill-5

If you’re the parent who reports a teacher for making sure students know about consent, cyber bullying & LGBTQ people, you’re a parent who is purposefully leaving your kid & others in the dark about something that could literally save their lives.

This is... some shit.

"If a teacher tells your sons and daughters about affirmative consent, be sure to call this line. We want to ensure that the children of this province continue to be raped and perhaps commit rape." #onpoli
RT @MariekeWalsh@twitter.com There is a phone number and two websites that parents can use to lodge complaints against teachers #onpoli #topoli

I don't care how you feel about the Liberals, they would have been better than this shit

Ford says his campaign never promised to keep the basic income pilot (the Star and CBC report that they did), Ford says his campaign said it would review the program. Here’s some background on that story https://ipolitics.ca/2018/08/02/ford-government-says-breaking-a-promise-on-the-basic-income-program-is-fake-news/ #onpoli https://ipolitics.ca/2018/08/02/ford-government-says-breaking-a-promise-on-the-basic-income-program-is-fake-news/

This is better than I expected with Doug Ford honestly
And worse than I am willing to allow
The new government has decreed that this fall students will learn the 1998 sex-education curriculum, predating Google, same-sex marriage, and high-speed Internet. A revamped lesson plan will come after further consultation. #onpoli

Ontario students will be taught the old sex-ed curriculum when they go back to school, education minister says | The Star

The old curriculum dates to 1998 while the modernized lesson plan covers areas such as same-sex relationships, gender identity, cyberbullying, and the dangers of sexting.

First-Past-the-Post isn't a problem because Doug Ford won the election. It's a problem because one party received 100% power from just 40% of the vote.
The Liberals winning in 2014 with less than 39% was a problem. The NDP winning in 1990 with less than 38% was a problem. #onpoli

And their policies will mean that they *have* to govern underwater!
It is time for Canada to have a Premier who can govern under water. Ontario, make it happen. https://twitter.com/TrilliumPartyON/status/1003635432075100160
