Can a city council pass a bylaw without the approval of the provincial government?

St. Andrews council believes they cannot pass a bylaw without the approval of the Provincial Government in Fredericton. Is that true?

There is no specific mention of the relationship between the province and city council in passing by-laws. However, we did find the following statute which may be relevant to you: New Brunswick Municipalities Act http://www.canlii.org/en/nb/laws/stat/rsnb-1973-c-m-22/latest/rsnb-1973-c-m-22.html
