After Premier Doug Ford announced the province’s plans to cut Toronto City Council nearly in half ahead of the upcoming election, some Toronto residents have had enough.

On Thursday morning, hundreds of people lined up outside of Queen’s Park, trying to get a seat inside during a question period to protest Ford’s latest move.

According to Toronto City Councillor candidate Jennifer Hollett, those who made it into the packed gallery were required to check their phones and notepads at security and they aren’t allowed to speak, cheer, or boo.

Those who didn’t make it into the gallery showed their support by holding signs and rallying outside of Queen’s Park.
