Point of Order by Mayor Rob Ford

Mayor Ford, rising on a Point of Order, stated that he had voted incorrectly on MM50.21 and MM50.27, and requested that Council reopen the Items so that he may vote correctly.

Ruling by Speaker Frances Nunziata
Speaker Nunziata accepted the Points of Order and ruled that the Items could not be re-opened at this time as the same Members of Council who were present for the previous votes were not in the Chamber.


Point of Order by Councillor Pam McConnell
Councillor McConnell, rising on a Point of Order, stated that Members must immediately advise when they have voted incorrectly on an Item and taking another vote now will change the history of the vote, as all the Members who voted on these Items are not present in the Chamber.
Ruling by Speaker Frances Nunziata
Speaker Nunziata accepted the Points of Order and ruled that Items MM50.21, MM50.27 and MM50.38 could not be re-opened at this time as the same Members of Council who were present for the previous votes were not in the Chamber.


Point of Order by Councillor John Filion

Councillor Filion, rising on a Point of Order, asked the Speaker to clarify whether Mayor Ford's corrected votes on Items MM50.21 and MM50.27 could be included without a reconsideration of the Items.

Ruling by Speaker Frances Nunziata
Speaker Nunziata accepted the Point of Order and ruled that the Items must be reconsidered first.


Point of Order by Councillor Gord Perks
Councillor Perks, rising on a Point of Order, stated that the City Clerk should inform Members if they are going to make a procedural error.  Councillor Perks further stated that the vote is displayed in the Chamber so Members can see if an error has been made, and if so re-open the vote to fix the error, and that Council cannot re-open at a later time based on who is or who is not in the Chamber.  Councillor Perks requested the City Clerk to advise Council of the relevant provisions of Roberts Rules of Order.
Ruling by Speaker Frances Nunziata
Speaker Nunziata, accepted the Point of Order and advised Council that the Members who were in the Chamber for the vote on MM50.21, MM50.27 and MM50.38 yesterday are present now.


Point of Order by Councillor Gord Perks

Ruling by Speaker Frances Nunziata
Speaker Nunziata accepted the Point of Order and stated that the Chair was ruling on the matter.


Point of Order by Councillor Janet Davis

Councillor Davis, rising on a Point of Order, stated that with the re-opening of Items MM50.21, MM50.27 and MM50.38, Members of Council are unclear on the acceptable practice to re-open items when a Member has made an error in voting.

Ruling by Speaker Frances Nunziata
Speaker Nunziata accepted the Point of Order and ruled that Council previously considered a motion to re-open a vote on an Item on the day after the original vote had taken place.


Point of Order by Councillor Janet Davis
Councillor Davis, rising on a Point of Order, stated that the City Clerk should provide Council with a procedural interpretation on this matter.
Ruling by Speaker Frances Nunziata
