It's been another week that's felt like a month at Queen's Park - probably because there was no real break.

MPP's sat through the weekend including a Sunday midnight sitting that rolled into Monday morning trying to speed up legislation aimed at reducing the size of Toronto's City Council. The Bill included section 33 of the Charter of Rights and Freedoms, a.k.a, the Notwithstanding Clause.

The outcome?

The Court of Appeal ruled Wednesday that Bill 5, (the original bill) is constitutional - so no need for the Nothwithstanding Clause.

That gave the Ford government the opportunity to change the channel and focus on the state of the box left behind by the Wynne Liberal government.
