  City takes fight over Toronto council cuts to Supreme Court The city announced Friday that it has filed an application with Canada’s highest court to seek leave to appeal the province’s decision to slash the size of council. The city said in a news release that it is now awaiting the Supreme Court of Canada's decision on whether or not it will hear the appeal.This move marks the final legal option for the city, after the provincial Court of Appeal decided in September that Premier Doug Ford's government had the "legitimate authority" to make mid-election council cuts.

TORONTO — Ontario is creating a council on provincial-federal relations, headed up by Premier Doug Ford.

Ford says the team, including several senior cabinet ministers, will work with federal counterparts on priorities such as infrastructure, health care and economic growth.

The government says its priorities will include pushing for increased funding through Canada Health Transfers, removing red tape and attracting international investment to all areas of Ontario.

The council will also include Health Minister Christine Elliott, Transportation Minister Caroline Mulroney, Finance Minister Rod Phillips, Treasury Board President Peter Bethlenfalvy, Infrastructure Minister Laurie Scott and Economic Development Minister Vic Fedeli.

Ford was a frequent target of Prime Minister Justin Trudeau during the election, but has struck a conciliatory tone since the vote.

The premier says he will travel to Ottawa on Friday to meet with the prime minister.

Legault says he and Ford will tag-team Trudeau together .
QUEBEC – Premier François Legault says he hopes to form a common front with Ontario to convince Ottawa to cut the red tape in the arduous process of getting the federal government to dole out funding for public transit projects. Legault said Prime Minister Justin Trudeau should stop trying to deal directly with cities when it comes to funding and instead turn over the money to provinces with no strings attached. “What we want to do is work as a common front when we talk with Mr. Trudeau,” Legault said Friday as he arrived for question period, a few hours before he was to sit down with Ontario Premier Doug Ford for a casual dinner in Montreal.
