Re: Convention Approved Motion re Electronic Mail
Please be advised I am exercising my authority under Section 505 of the General By-
Laws, and applying the provisions of Section 417. by suspending the operation of the
above noted motion wnicfr was passed at the Provincial Convention held from May 10tl’
to 13tl’, 2015 in Niagara Falls, Ontario.
As was explained at the convention, the Royal Canadian Legion Act, 1990 is Provincial
Legislation, and can only be changed by the Ontario Legislature. Further, the Motion did
nof include any requirement to amend the Royal Canadian Legion Act, 1990, nor did it
include the amendment of other Sections within The General By-Laws of the Ontario
Provincial Command and The General By-Laws for Branches of the Ontario Provincial
Command that would be affected by this motion. The Motion can therefore not become
effective until all other affected matters are resolved.
Command will take this matter under advisement and initiate any necessary action to
permit the eventual incorporation of the central focus of the subject motion by crafting
and pursuing all necessary Amendments.
The present provisions contained in the aforementioned By-Laws respecting the mailing
of a Notice pertaining to the rescheduling of a Meeting of the Branch or the call of a
Special General Meeting will remain in effect until such time as all cited Amendments
have been crafted and approved by the appropriate body.
