The Supreme Court of Canada will announce Thursday at 9:45 am whether or not it will hear Magder’s appeal in the ongoing Rob Ford case.
In case you have been living under a rock (or outside of Toronto at least), Justice Hackland ordered the Mayor of Toronto out of office last September. The Mayor won his appeal before the Divisional Court in January, and was permitted to remain in office.
With an election scheduled for 2014, the Supreme Court ruling, should the Supreme Court elect to hear the appeal, will likely be largely academic.
Nevertheless, many will be watching intently (myself included) to see if the Supreme Court elects to take the case.
