@joamo okay, so
- after years of consultation, Toronto changed ward (electoral district) boundaries to reflect population changes This would have shifted city council leftward and added 3 councillors (44 to 47).
- former drug dealer turned city councillor turned premier, who has a majority government, pushed through a bill to essentially cancel the election campaign in progress (date is October) and change it to 25 councillors with wards twice as large (to his advantage) +
@joamo - people took them to court
- the judge decided the bill was unconstitutional and said the 47-ward election was back on
- the premier announced he would use the nuclear bomb of constitutional law to override the court decision - can be done in some situations, is often seen as political suicide but will not be in this case
Sunbeam City is a anticapitalist, antifascist solarpunk instance that is run collectively.
