More on Notwithstanding

Following up on my earlier post, from the Calgary Sun, a quote by Peter Russell:

Constitutional law expert Peter H. Russell, a professor emeritus at the University of Toronto, told The Canadian Press the notwithstanding clause is "a brilliant part of our constitutional law"... and "it would be foolish to throw it out."

Russell said Martin's plan might not even be legal and throwing a hastily conceived policy platform into the debate on an issue so fundamental to Canadians is "a strong argument for saying Paul Martin is not really equipped to govern," said Russell. "And I'm not a Conservative."
