"Speak disrespectfully"? How odd.

Why re-invent the wheel? Unparliamentary language has been well defined by rulings by the Speakers of the House of Commons in Ottawa and of the Legislative Assembly of Ontario since 1867.

My suggestion for a by-law would read like this:

7.1 No person in attendance at a Council or Committee meeting shall: a) Use unparliamentary language. b) In determining what is unparliamentary language, the Speaker of Hamilton City Council or Chair of the committee shall rely upon precedents set by the Legislative Assembly of Ontario.

Problem solved!
