That when the report on the Canadian Interfaith Network has been received and questions addressed to the Committee, the House move into "in camera" to discuss the report. CARRIED #5-10-84
Notes
N.B. In camera minutes NOT included in electronic database.
The Rev. W. Lowe introduced the Rev. David MacDonald, president-Elect of the Canadian Interfaith Television Network, Dr. David Nostbakken, who has special responsibility for production and animation and the Rev. Canon Ebert Hobbs who has been involved in funding and development.
Mr. Lowe said that the two to three day hearing is to be held before the C.R.T.C. in November in Hull, Quebec. He reported that data revealed in the public hearing would be reviewed, and if approved, the licence will be issued in January or February of 1985.
Mr. MacDonald said that a free, no-pay television licence has been applied for. He stressed that a key question is the situation with the Roman Catholic Church whose real problem is both size and the Anglophone/Francophone division, further complicated by the fact that the Roman Catholic Church has had no personnel for communications for the past several years. He reported that the Canadian Conference of Catholic Bishops said that they felt it would not be appropriate for them to become further involved, as a Conference of Bishops, but would encourage regional participation.
Canon Hobbs reviewed financial statements which were distributed, for information. He reported that a Feasibility Study is now being conducted by Community Charitable Counselling Service and that their report will be part of the public document which is available at the Hearing. Among the questions and concerns raised by the Bishops were the following:
- What is the potential viewing audience ?
- What are the financial implications ?
- It was recognized that neo-religious groups will be given air time as well.
Dr. Nostbakken spoke regarding the Children's Broadcasting Institute. He said that research reveals that there is a large concern on the part of parents and teachers regarding the quality of programs which reach children. He stated that television has become a way of life for children and that, by the time they have graduated from high school, they have watched on an average of 15,000 hours of television. This has a great influence on their beliefs and attitudes.
Concern was expressed regarding production costs. Mr. MacDonald expressed the opinion that the C.R.T.C. will accept the Canadian Interfaith Network application, and Mr. Lowe added that the C.R.T.C. is concerned that the coalition of religious communities stay together in this endeavour.
Archbishop Scott reminded the Bishops that there is to be a meeting at 9:30 a.m. on Tuesday, 6th November regarding the Canadian Interfaith Network, and enquired as to the possibility of any of the Bishops being present at that meeting. Unfortunately, all of the Bishops indicated that other commitments made attendance at that meeting impossible.
The Primate shared a letter which had been sent to the Rev. David MacDonald from the Jesuits in which they expressed enthusiastic support and indicated that financial support would be available for the Canadian Interfaith Network. The Jesuits indicated in their letter that they would encourage other Roman Catholic groups to give their support to the project.

Prologue
Moved by Bishop Short
Seconded by Bishop Stiff
That Archbishops and Bishops of the Anglican Church of Canada are agreed that through the General Synod of 1975 the Church has expressed its will that women should be ordained to the Priesthood.
It is also agreed that the Conscience Clause which was approved at the time of this change in policy should continue in force. The House, however, deplores the misapplication which some members of the clergy and laity have made of the Clause. The refusal to read a Si Quis, to receive Holy Communion from a woman priest who is not the Celebrant at the Eucharist, to object to a woman ordained or not, publicly reciting the Divine Office, leading in prayers, preaching, or reading lessons, simply on the grounds that she is a woman, are not supported by the Conscience Clause. No action which questions the integrity of any priest or postulant on sexist grounds can be defended by an appeal to the Clause.
The House honours women priests, upholds them in its prayers, and desires only that God's will may be done in and through all priests whether female or male.

CARRIED #6-6-83
Notes
It was agreed that the Amendment to Motion #49 in the Convening Circular proposed by Archbishop Garnsworthy should be the concluding paragraph of the Motion.
Bishops Short and Stiff withdrew their original Motion and proposed the following:
"That the following statement of the House of Bishops of the Anglican Church of Canada concerning the Conscience Clause June 1983, be presented to the General Synod:
`The Archbishops and Bishops of the Anglican Church of Canada are agreed that through the General Synod of 1975 the Anglican Church of Canada has expressed its will that women may be ordained to the Priesthood.
It is also agreed that the Conscience Clause which was approved at the time of this change in policy should continue in force. The House, however, deplores the misapplication which some members of the Church have made of the Clause.
No action which questions the integrity of any priest or postulant on grounds of sex alone can be defended by an appeal to the Clause.
The House honours women priests, upholds them in its prayers, and desires only that God's will may be done in and through all priests whether female or male.
Christian love cannot be legislated, but needs to be practised and demonstrated more effectively in order to realize the community which belongs in the Body of Christ'." CARRIED

Bishop Berry reported that the Task Force on the Ordinal recommends that the Ordinal be placed in the Bishop's Book, and that it is hoped it will be ready for approval by the House in February, 1982, adding that copies will be distributed to all Bishops as soon as possible. Included in the Bishop's Book will be all Services which are used on a regular basis in the parish church. Bishop Short stressed that this will not replace the Prayer Book, but will provide Alternative Services.
The Psalter
Bishop Parke-Taylor reported that the Committee believes the Psalter of the Episcopal Church in the USA would be best for use in the Canadian Church.
Regret was expressed that it has not been possible to proceed with the appointment of a liturgical officer, and it was noted that this matter is to go before the November meeting of the National Executive Council.

Prologue
The Primate reported results of the questionnaire which had been circulated to all Bishops. He said that the majority of the Bishops indicated that England is a preferable location for a Lambeth Conference, while some suggested Third World countries or Australia. The consensus was that each Diocese in the Anglican Communion should support its own Bishop's attendance at the Conference, with Provincial aid where diocesan finances are not sufficient. If Provincial resources do not permit, assistance from the wider Anglican Communion should be made available. The majority indicated that a Wives' Conference could be useful, but that the wives should be housed with their husbands, and the Conference design and content should be stimulating and interesting to the women.
The Primate said that a final decision regarding location will be made in March, 1982, and that preparatory study material will be made available very early. There is general agreement that it should be a residential Conference. A Lambeth Conference Planning Committee will be set up as soon as final decision regarding location is made.
It was agreed that there needs to be a formal Planning Committee established encompassing representatives of the whole Anglican Communion.
