Convention Approved Motion re Electronic Mail


To: All Branches

PEC Committee

Dear Comrades:

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.

Brian Weaver, President

Ontario Command
