Woo, Ford Nation baby, where the laws are made up and the courts don’t matter.

We discuss Doug Ford’s use of the notwithstanding clause, and how norms and unwritten rules won’t save us. Other topics on this episode:

  • The relationship between the Toronto police and white supremacists
  • How Sweden’s elections show once again that we can’t accept right-wing premises on immigration
  • Maxime Bernier’s stakeholder outreach to neo-Nazis

Plus, we run through some of the best takes from Canada’s pundits on 9/11 and the Iraq War.
