That section four be deleted and add to the motion "pending formal consultation with the Native people of the area." CARRIED
Notes
The Statement would now read:
1. In 1976, the National Executive Council authorized the Primate, in cooperation with other Canadian Church leaders, to request the Prime Minister and the Federal Cabinet to deny permits for offshore drilling in the Beaufort Sea.
2. Subsequently, the Cabinet agreed to authorize a permit for Dome Petroleum to undertake drilling operations during the 1976 season.
3. A number of technological as well as human failures were recorded in the course of the drilling season. Events have been documented to show the evident failure of Dome's technology to cope without substantial environmental risk with conditions in the Beaufort Sea.
4. A detailed review by the Canadian Arctic Resources Committee (CARC) shows that both the Department of Indian and Northern Affairs (DINA) and Dome Petroleum told both Native people and the public less than half the story about difficulties encountered in the 1976 offshore drilling operations.
5. Dome Petroleum has applied to Cabinet for approval of a 5-year drilling program in the Beaufort Seas.
6. In the light of the above information and events which have come to light since the recent meeting of the Program Committee, the Management Unit at the request of Social Action Ministries staff, propose that the National Executive Council pass the following resolution:
Moved by MacKenzie, seconded by Leadbeater,
That the Primate and/or officers of the National Executive Council again request the Prime Minister and the Federal Cabinet to deny permits for offshore drilling in the Beaufort Sea pending formal consultation of the Native people of the area. CARRIED

Text
That the National Executive Council of the Anglican Church of Canada commends to the Government of Canada for its statement on the Republic of South Africa delivered in the General Assembly of the United Nations on November 1, 1976 and urges clear action consonant with the words of the statement:
"The events of the past year demonstrate visibly that time remaining for effective peaceful change is growing shorter day by day. We believe that our individual and collective efforts must be intensified and harmonized -- we believe that no opportunity should be missed to expose the government of South Africa and its electorate to unanimous and relentless international pressures which demand action and change. Change is bound to come. South Africans of all races must face up to that fact and develop a new relationship. If conditions of chronic turbulence which risk deterioration into civil war, with its attendant toll of human tragedy are to be avoided, change must take place, not ten years hence, not five years hence, but now."
and requests the Primate to forward to the Government of Canada a more detailed comment in the light of previous actions by this Church and information available from Anglican and other sources.
The NEC urges the Canadian government publicly to discourage further bank or commercial loans by private or crown financial institutions to the Government of South Africa or any of its crown corporations or agencies.
The NEC requests the Government of Canada to indicate what concrete and specific steps it proposes to take both unilaterally and multilaterally to increase the international censure of South Africa. CARRIED
