Parksville mayor will no longer be referred to as ‘Your Worship’ in meetings

Council amends procedure bylaw in Dec. 5 decision

Parksville’s mayor will no longer be addressed as ‘Your Worship’ in council meetings.

Council gave three readings to a bylaw amending Council Procedure Bylaw, 2018, No. 1541, by deleting Section Section 16 (3) and replacing it with a new Section 16 (3) that states, “members shall address the chair as ‘Mayor’ or ‘Chair’ and shall address a member by that councillor’s surname preceded by ‘Councillor’.”

It replaces a bylaw adopted in October 2019 that instructed council members to address the mayor as ‘Your Worship’.

Council Procedure Amendment Bylaw, 2022, No. 1541.3 was carried unanimously at the Dec. 5 regular meeting.
