There is no perfect way to approve new bylaws. However, in my opinion, a wise board will consult with owners to identify what they want ‑ e.g. consult, not announce and then defend the new bylaws. It can be very difficult to achieve 75% approval without doing so.
A wise board would provide for at least one information meeting and a reasonable time for owners to consider the bylaws. 2 weeks seems a little tight to me.
I don’t see how anyone can vote on a resolution without seeing it.
I have very limited experience, but I don’t think all owner’s signatures have to be on the resolution when filed at the Land Titles Office, but the condo would have to be able to provide written documentation supporting the passage of a change in bylaws ‑ e.g. excellent documentation would be essential in the event it is required.
Looking forward to other feedback.
Consider consulting with Phil Rosenzweig who has experience as a 30 year owner and, for a short time, a condominium manager.
