Game on.

Toronto city council has voted to challenge the legality of the Ontario government’s bill – cutting council almost in half.

The vote was 27-15 and also included a 25-17 vote to exhaust all legal avenues to challenge Bill 5 – including appealing any rulings.

The vote happened late in the day after a full day of debate.

Councillor Josh Matlow put forward the motion supporting the legal challenge of Bill 5 – known as The Better Local Governments Act.

Mayor John Tory called the province’s decision to cut the council ranks by almost half..”wrong and unacceptable” – and says he will support a court challenge.
