The Prolocutor read the following Ruling, re Admission of Women to the Lower House.
Text
The language of the Constitution rendering it necessary to determine whether male or female persons, or both, are intended:
1. It is certain that only men were in contemplation when the law was made:
2. It is equally certain that women would not have been included had the point arisen:
3. It is a principle of legal interpretation that in questions of doubtful terminology, regard should be had to the intention of those making the law:
The Chair therefore rules that until the General Synod positively enact otherwise, women are not entitled to membership in the Lower House.

The Bishop of Niagara reported that the Special Committee had agreed that in view of the longer meeting arranged for Fredericton in August-September 1966, it recommended that the May Meeting of the NEC be held in the Toronto Diocesan Centre, if accommodation available. The General Secretary stated that he had tentatively booked the Diocesan Centre. This recommendation was being made in order to avoid the additional expense involved in travelling to Aurora.

It was the feeling of the Council that more detailed information should be supplied on Page 4 of the letter concerning "others' expenses." Also, it should be indicated in the letter that although the meetings of the full Boards are required by Canon, the meetings this particular year would be very short and therefore consideration might be given by Dioceses to some reduction in attendance, especially since it is expected that the Bishops will be in full attendance.

Prologue
Concerning the quotas assigned for the raising of funds, the following letter was submitted by the Diocese of Toronto:
"The Executive Committee of this Diocese has considered the matter of the quota set for Expo '67 of $51,210, which is based on the normal share allocated to this Diocese in the General Synod Apportionments.
While this Diocese is conscious of its responsibility to the whole Canadian Church, and ready at all times to take its fair share of any sum required for the work of the Church, it feels that the impact of Expo '67 will be greatest in the Diocese of Montreal, to which a quota of only $17,418 has been allocated. It is noted that the Dioceses of British Columbia and New Westminster, which are some 3,000 miles from Montreal, and upon which the least impact would be received are given substantial quotas. In view of this, we request the National Executive Committee of General Synod to reconsider the proposed quotas in the light of geographic locations.
We should like to point out, also, that the lengthy delay in securing adequate information as to the nature of the Christian Pavilion, and the proposed method of operation during Expo '67, is a factor which makes an appeal in the early part of 1966 very difficult, and unlikely to be successful. It is recommended that General Synod produce a pew leaflet which could be used uniformly throughout the Canadian Church, and which would supply the essential information which is so lacking. Such a pew leaflet could be of an ecumenical nature. Possibly the Montreal Committee could be asked to design and produce a leaflet at the cost of General Synod.
It is felt that there are certain values in the appeal which must be stressed to ensure an adequate response. These are: (a) it is an evangelistic witness in the Twentieth Century to present a Christian witness where so many of our people and visitors from abroad will be gathering; (b) it is an Ecumenical witness in which for the first time in Canada all denominations are actively sharing; (c) it is a reconciling witness on the Canadian scene, for it will indicate a joint French-English operation.
In consideration of these obvious values, it is felt that other weaknesses in the appeal should be ignored or played down.
For your information, this Diocese has not placed an amount in this year's Budget as it is too late, and it is felt some effort should be put forth to the Centennial year.
It is our plan to have an appeal on the Sunday next before Advent (Stir Up Sunday), namely November 20, with envelopes and supporting literature.
It is hoped that the contents of this letter will be given consideration by the National Executive Committee during the February meetings."
Text
That this letter be received. CARRIED
Notes
Regarding this letter, it was stressed that the impact of the Pavilion should be felt throughout the country, and its activities involve all the churches in Canada. Its success is of as much importance to the other Provinces as it is to Quebec.
The General Secretary reported that the following Dioceses have replied accepting their quotas: Newfoundland, Brandon and Qu'Appelle. One Diocese has not accepted its quota.
In order to make this a truly united appeal, it was suggested that the booklets already available be distributed by the parishes on Whit Sunday to stimulate interest in the project, and then on Stir Up Sunday the appeal be made for funds by all the Dioceses. One of the main challenges of this Pavilion was thought to be that this project should be done in conjunction with the other denominations, thus making it a truly ecumenical project across the country. While it was originally suggested that all denominations make their appeals simultaneously, this was found to be impossible as the Roman Catholics have stated they would not make appeals in their parishes. They would prefer to make a lump sum available through their church.
