G23-B005 3-year term on Federal Council
To ensure greater stability of the Party's governing body and preserve institutional memory, replace "two (2) years" in bylaw 126.96.36.199 with "three (3) years" in order to increase the term of office of Federal Council members, with the exception of the Party Leader.
Change Bylaw 188.8.131.52 to read as follows:
184.108.40.206 All members of Federal Council are elected for a term of three (3) years or until the election of their successor, with the exception of the Party Leader whose term is defined in bylaw 220.127.116.11.
*Current Bylaw 18.104.22.168 becomes Bylaw 22.214.171.124.
Remove current bylaws 126.96.36.199 and 188.8.131.52 (see below) and advise Federal Council to create a process for a staggered Federal Council election process.
184.108.40.206 In odd-numbered years, the representatives of Newfoundland and Labrador, New Brunswick, Quebec, Manitoba, Alberta, the Territories, the First Nations, the President and the Francophone Vice-President will be elected.
220.127.116.11 In even-numbered years, the representatives of Nova Scotia, Prince Edward Island, Ontario, Saskatchewan, British Columbia, the English-speaking Vice-President, the Inuit representative, the Métis representative and the Fund representative will be elected.
