The motion recommends that municipalities use a nationally standardized methodology in carrying out homeless counts.
This motion does concern a question that is outside federal jurisdiction. I want to point out to the committee, however, that a motion only expresses the views of the House and does not have any legal implications. Generally, the House has the capacity to consider any matter and express its view on it.
Otherwise, the motion does not clearly violate the Constitution Acts. It does not concern a question that is substantially the same as one already voted on by the House of Commons. It does not concern a question that is currently on the order paper or notice paper.
