Prologue
Continuity of Information : Diocese-to-Province-to-General Synod
Diane Brookes' concern related to the lack of communication between the three levels of Synods -- diocesan, provincial and general. This may be an issue unique to the Diocese of the Arctic, but Diane felt that Council would be able to offer suggestions on how best to approach this concern. The consensus seemed to be that, to serve as a delegate to all three levels would be physically, spiritually and emotionally exhausting. A suggestions was made that the reporting all be done in writing and circulated to members of synods and executive committee. Diane will take this advice back to her diocese and expressed her thanks for the help from the members of COGS.
Gitxsan Nation Update
Lorna Janze thanked COGS members for the resolution of support that was forwarded to all Chiefs of this Nation. No information has been forthcoming from the Supreme Court.
Vision TV : cable channel line-up
A pamphlet regarding the moving of Vision TV to Channel 59 in the Toronto area, and similar changes in other areas, was noted. This will affect General Synod broadcasts in 1998 as many locations do not receive Channel 59.
