36.1. The city council must consult with the ward council
(1) on a draft by-law to be put forth at a public consultation meeting under sections 125 to 127 of the Act respecting land use planning and development (chapter A-19.1); and
(2) on matters listed in the by-law respecting the public consultation policy adopted under section 36.
The ward council may also, on its own initiative, give its advice to the city council or borough council on any other matter concerning the ward.
Notwithstanding the first paragraph, the city council may, by by-law passed with a 2/3 majority of members’ votes, authorize the executive committee to exclude from the ward council’s consultation certain draft by-laws that are to be submitted to public consultation under sections 125 to 127 of the Act respecting land use planning and development.
The by-law must specify the matters referred to in the draft by-laws that will be excluded from the ward council’s consultation and the criteria that the executive committee must take into consideration. The criteria may provide, in particular, that the executive committee may exclude from the ward council’s consultation certain draft by-laws only if, in its opinion, the draft by-law has no impact on or is of little consequence to authorized uses or implementation standards applicable to the areas subject to the draft by-law.
