We round up the latest in BC politics: Eby’s (delayed) swearing in, fundraising numbers, labour peace, doctor deals, Olympic denial and what’s happening in the House (with one week of sitting left).
Then we deep dive into the legitimacy of the notwithstanding clause following Doug Ford’s usage to strip education workers of their right to strike in Ontario (they’re off the job anyway though).
And in quick takes, the federal fall fiscal update and new immigration targets.
