That this National Executive Council express to Chancellor R.H. Soward its heartfelt and grateful appreciation for the dedication and concern which he has faithfully provided to the General Synod of the Anglican Church of Canada as its Solicitor over the past thirty years. The example which Chancellor Soward has given in these years of committed stewardship, together with the professional skill and ability which he has demonstrated are often not fully appreciated during such an effective term in office. This Council hereby wishes to record its thanks and acknowledgement for the exemplary contribution which Chancellor Soward has made to his Church: a contribution not just as its Solicitor but in his life and work throughout the whole wide spectrum of his involvement in the Church as a man who has demonstrated his faith in terms of visible action.
A standing ovation followed the presentation of this motion. The motion was therefore declared CARRIED Unanimously.

Prologue
Dr. Betty Graham, Canon W. Askew and the Primate reported on the fourth meeting of the Anglican Consultative Council which was held at Huron College, London, Ontario - May, 1979.
A high level of attendance was reported, and appreciation was expressed for the opportunity which was provided to meet representatives from all parts of the world. Worship services, using Rites of various parts of the Anglican Communion, were a thrill and provided a sense of unity. It was a special joy to have representatives from the Church in Burma present for the first time. The rise of Islam was a subject of discussion, and mentioned by the Archbishop of Canterbury in his sermon at the Opening Service. Metro-political authority was discussed, and the Anglican Consultative Council has been requested to study methods of episcopal election. The advisability of holding a Congress has been referred to the Standing Committee for review.

Prologue
Miss Betty C. Graham presented the Report on the Task Force on Human Life in place of the Chairman, The Rev. Paul Chidwick.
Miss Graham brought special attention to the conclusion of the Report referring to AID.
"The Task Force would like the report to provide insights and guidance to help the persons involved in making responsible choices about these new techniques - the men and women facing the dilemmas of unwished for sterility, the doctors wishing to adopt a responsible approach to newly available medical techniques, the lawyers whose counsel may be sought, the legislators who ultimately will have to deal with the complex problems the techniques raise. As in its report on abortion, the Task Force wishes to promote serious discussion and to aid the church and the community to make responsible decisions in this expanding area of medical science."
Text
"That this Synod request the Primate to reappoint a Task Force on Human Life to:
a) conclude its study of the issues related to AID (Artificial Insemination, Donor) and after approval by the National Executive Council circulate its report for information and discussion before the end of June, 1976;
b) prepare a report on the issues related to death and dying including the extension of life by mechanical and other means; and after the approval by the National Executive Council, circulate its report for information and discussion by the end of 1976.
and that in accordance with the limitation of size imposed on all our committees, such a Task Force be centred in a specific area and be limited to 12 people (as is the A & F Committee) augmented as necessary by corresponding members."
Moved by: Chancellor J.E. Hudson
Seconded by: Mr. David Leaker

- "c) to continue to study the question of abortion. DEFEATED IN THE ORDERS OF CLERGY AND LAITY
The original motion was then put and CARRIED Act 34
