就怕心不齐啊。所有的竞选人都bow out of 市选，会是啥情形？
Doucette has represented the current Ward 13, Parkdale-High Park, since 2010, but says she's not interested in serving on a 25-ward council.
"It's not, to be honest, a job I want," she told CBC Radio's Metro Morning on Thursday.
Doucette said the change would pile on work to the point where she was no longer directly in touch with community members.
"I came in as a grassroots activist … working in the community," she said.
Doucette would likely square off against Coun. Gord Perks in the municipal election — "Oh I would have beat him," she said, laughing — who she considers a "dear friend."
If Perks wins, Doucette said she expects him and the rest of council to face rocky times in their dealings with Ford's government.
"We know what he wants to do. Now, unfortunately, he's capable of doing these vindictive things he threatened to do when he was a councillor," she said.
Doucette joins a number of incumbent councillors who say they aren't running again (although, nominations aren't expected to close until next week.) Those councillors include:
Coun. Glenn de Baeremaeker.
Coun. Janet Davis.
Coun. Josh Colle.
Coun. Mary-Margaret McMahon
Coun. Justin Di Ciano.
Several other councillors who were appointed this term are also not running again.
Section 33 — known as the notwithstanding clause — allows premiers or prime ministers to override for a five-year period rulings on legislation that judges have determined would violate sections of the Charter.
Pierre Trudeau opposed the clause, but reluctantly agreed to its inclusion in order to get a deal on the Constitution Act of 1982, which wrested control of Canada's Constitution from Britain.
