Not in force
53. The chair of the board may not have a direct or indirect interest in a body, enterprise or association that places the chair’s personal interests in conflict with those of the Authority. If such an interest devolves to the chair, including by succession or gift, it must be renounced or disposed of with dispatch.
Subject to the third paragraph, any other board member who has a direct or indirect interest in a body, enterprise or association that places the member’s personal interests in conflict with those of the Authority must disclose it in writing to the chair of the board and abstain from participating in any discussion or decision involving that body, enterprise or association. The member must also withdraw from a meeting while the matter is discussed or voted on.
Sections 304 to 307 of the Act respecting elections and referendums in municipalities (chapter E-2.2) apply, with the necessary modifications, to board members who are council members of a local municipality.
This section does not prevent a board member from expressing an opinion on general measures relating to conditions of employment within the Authority that would also apply to the board member.
