*The ability for the public to speak to its government is a privilege granted by the respective government authority to its constituents in a manner the government chooses. The above notwithstanding, tradition has been (particularly at the local government level) to allow some form of deputation within a prescribed set of rules under a Procedural By-law authorized by the Municipal Act, 2001. Those rules should maintain the notice of privilege and the ability of a Chair to restrain anyone who abuses that privilege.
