Giving notice to the strata: When can council members say no?

Dear Tony:  The president of our strata council has decided on a policy that any type of notice given to the strata corporation, or a request for information or hearings, must go through her or it is deemed not to be received. As a result, she has failed to notify the rest of council about requests for hearings, a request for a hardship exemption, several requests for alterations to strata lots and demands for information. This seems like a no-brainer, where the council simply votes to override the policy but every year this person has enough proxies to make sure she gets back on council.

It’s a form of bullying we don’t know how to fight.     Read the Q&A………….
