65.13. Notwithstanding any contrary provision of any general law, special Act, regulation, by-law or order, no member of the council of a municipality may receive, as an indemnity for a portion of the expenses attaching to his office in the municipality, in a mandatary body of the municipality or in a supramunicipal body, a total annual sum greater than the annual expense allowance of a Member of the National Assembly established under the Act respecting the conditions of employment and the pension plan of the Members of the National Assembly (chapter C-52.1).
Where the total annual sum that a member of the council would receive to indemnify him for a portion of his expenses, if the first paragraph did not apply, exceeds the maximum fixed therein, the excess is deemed, for each office contemplated and proportionately to the basic remuneration attached to it, to be additional remuneration instead of an indemnity for expenses. For the computation of the total annual sum that a member would receive, the reduction effected in accordance with the third paragraph of section 65.11 or the fourth paragraph of section 65.12 is, if applicable, taken into account.
For the purposes of this section, the expressions “mandatary body of the municipality” and “supramunicipal body” have the meaning conferred on them by section 65.11 and section 14.1, respectively.
