Can a motion override another motion?

Motions can absolutely override other motions. For example, should the Government of Canada lose a budget vote (which would be an expression of non-confidence in the Government), the Government may propose a motion of confidence, which if passed would override the effect of the lost budget vote. (It would not revive the bill, but would prevent the defeat of the Government.) Motions of confidence always override motions of non-confidence.
