Prologue
Ms. Hanna Goschy, Treasurer, presented the budget for 2015 for the Council’s consideration. She described the budgeting process and outlined the planning and revenue assumptions for 2015 with an emphasis on the conservative nature of the budget.
She briefing explained the history of proportional giving which has been in steady decline since 1992 with some leveling of after 2008 and noted the decline in undesignated legacies received since 2008.
In response to a query about the review of assets of the MSCC [Missionary Society of the Anglican Church of Canada], she explained that research is underway on identifying the endowments and their direction and expected to last several months. The Chancellor will review the findings from a legal perspective. A report back to CoGS will not be ready until the November 2015 meeting.

Prologue
A motion was introduced by the Planning and Agenda Team requiring the Commission on the Marriage Canon report be circulated to members and to the co-chairs of the Planning and Agenda Team followed by a teleconference to decide how and when the report would be circulated further.

After much consideration, The Ven. Harry Huskins, at the request of the Primate, assumed the chair and the Primate proposed that a special council meeting be convened for the commission to make a formal presentation to members, for members to consider how to take it and the resolution to General Synod, and for public release of the report.
The Primate resumed the chair, the original motion withdrawn by consensus and a new motion proposed.

IN COUNSEL TOGETHER
The Rev. Karen Egan explained that the goal was to begin a conversation around resolving conflict which would evolve and would continue over the next several meetings within the table groups.
[Page 12]
The General Secretary presented four options, which were distilled from earlier discussions, for members to consider:
1. All submissions to the Commission will be posted on the web with attribution
2. Those intending to make a submission to the Commission may request, in advance of their submission, that their contribution not be attributed by name
3. Submissions to the Commission, while signed, will not be publicly associated by name
4. Two lists will be made public - one for submissions and a second list of those who made submissions.
Move into the Committee of the Whole
Moved by: The Very Rev. Peter Wall
Seconded by: Mr. Jim Sweeny
The General Secretary provided a brief report on outcome of conversations yesterday and asked members to identify their most and least preferred option.
[Page 13]
Members fully discussed the four options (listed earlier).
New wording for option #2 was proposed as “The General Rule is that all submissions to the Commission will be posted on the web with attribution. However, a person intending to make a submission, prior to making the submission, may request permission from the Commission for their submission to be posted on the web without attribution, and the Commission may for good reason grant that request.”
At this point there was no clear consensus and the Primate requested the writing group confer and further discussion occur later in the morning
Move out of committee of the whole
Moved by: Ms. Jennifer Warren
Seconded by: Mr. Alex Starr
Members considered the following rewording of the second option for submissions “All submission will be posted to the web with attribution. However, prior to receiving a submission, the Commission may for good reason grant a request that a submission be posted without attribution”. Support was mixed and the working group asked to return with a specific recommendation for members.
[Page 14]
After carefully considering the opinions expressed by members, the Chancellor recommended a proposal to Council.
Text
That “All submissions to the Commission will be posted on the web with attribution."
ADOPTED #24-05-14
Notes
The motion was put and by consensus was achieved in its favour. The Primate expressed his appreciation to the Very Rev. Peter Wall, the Ven. Dr. Michael Thompson, Canon David Jones and Mrs. Cynthia Haines-Turner.
