The Emergencies Act inquiry has been told that both Premier Doug Ford and former Solicitor General Sylvia Jones have overstated their privilege as politicians as they try to avoid testifying. That from the commissioner overseeing the inquiry. In documents filed Monday, the commissioner asks the pair’s judicial review application be dismissed.

Ford and Jones were both summoned last week to testify at the inquiry probing the federal government’s use of the Emergencies Act to end the so-called Freedom Convoy protests in Ottawa and Windsor.

Lawyers for Ford and Jones filed an application in Federal Court that seeks to quash the summons, citing parliamentary privilege.
