46. The executive committee acts for the Community in all cases in which a provision, adopted under section 47, of the internal management by-laws assigns the power to perform the act to the executive committee.
The executive committee gives the council its opinion on any matter, where required to do so under a provision in the by-law, at the request of the council or on its own initiative.
The opinion of the executive committee does not bind the council. Failure to submit an opinion required under the internal management by-laws or by the council does not restrict the council’s power to consider and vote on the matter.
