Hi,
During our training in London it was mentioned that the Regulation of Third Party Advertising would be posted on the discussion forum. I haven't seen it when perusing the discussions but wanted to make sure I didn't miss it. Also just wondering if anybody knows if the new MEA book has come out, or if you know when it is coming out.
Thank you

Hi, I am just wondering if a decision has been made yet if Municipalities with less than 4,000 population are required to obtain the 25 signatures for nominations?

Thank you

I am working on a policy for Use of Corporate Resources Many policies stipulate that their poicy applies not only to Candidates and sitting members of Council, but also to Acclaimed Candidates and Members of Council not seeking re-election. I can understand why acclaimed candidates must adhere to the policy, because the campaign period ends December 31, 2018, but I am not clear why members of Council not seeking re-election must adhere to the policy. Could someone please explain.

Can anybody tell me if there is a deadline by which the Returning Officer must take their Oath? I know previously it was January 1st of an election year and am assuming that may have changed.
Thank you.

Our City Solicitor has provided a definition for trade unions from the Labour Relations Act; given the MEA is silent and points you to the LRA definition, I want to know if this the broad definition municipalities are using or is there something else you may have received from a municipal advisor, any assistance would be appreciated.

In the AMCTO manual - Form EL16 shows that S.25 of the act allows for this. In the amended act, this part has been removed and S.25 only applies to a deceased person now. Am I missing something or is there a section that this form still pertains to? Thanks!
