Ontario filed a reconsideration request to drop a call for Premier Ford to testify at the investigation

Documents filed in Federal Court say 'irreparable damage will be done' if Ford testifies

Ontario has filed a reconsideration request seeking to overturn Prime Minister Doug Ford's summons to testify at the Emergency Act investigation in Ottawa.

The attorney general said in documents filed in Federal Court that "irreparable harm would be incurred" if Ford testified.

The province cited parliamentary privileges which grant immunity to sitting members of the government to testify in court and under investigation.

The Public Order Emergency Commission is examining the federal government's use of the Emergency Act to end the so-called Freedom Convoy protests in Ottawa and Windsor last winter.

On Monday, the commission summoned Ford and Jones to testify at the investigation.

The province has asked the court to hear his urgent plea next Tuesday.
