After Premier Doug Ford announced he will invoke the Constitution’s notwithstanding clause to override Monday’s court decision on Toronto City Council, some Toronto residents have had enough.

On Wednesday 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 use of the notwithstanding clause to slash council size.

According to MPP Michael Coteau, the question period was briefly delayed due to hecklers, and the public gallery was cleared out and protestors were handcuffed and cleared out of the building.

After Ford kicked everyone out of the public gallery, hundreds of Torontonians outside of Queen’s Park began chanting “Let us in!”
