Ontario: Ontario’s premier said that he will not use the notwithstanding clause after the court struck down a law that limited the salaries of public sector workers.
But Premier Doug Ford says his government is considering appealing against the court’s ruling earlier this week.
Ford said the decision was “very interesting” and that he wanted to go through the process once in a while. On the other hand, the interim leader of the Liberals, John Fraser, is describing this decision to appeal to the provincial government as stupid.
“First you attract workers to the healthcare sector from all over the world, and at any time later you say that we can limit your allowances,” Fraser said. It is not wise to take such decisions when the situation is critical.
