- to consult through the Primate `with the Archbishop of Canterbury on behalf of the Primates',
- and to report to the April 2004 meeting of the House of Bishops." (Note: see p. 24, when motion was put to a vote.)

Notes
Archbishop Clarke requested that copies of the original version of Archbishop Hutchison's and Archbishop Finlay's motion, as well as the version which the House had carried be appended to the minutes ([Appendix] i). He also asked that the Agenda Committee give some consideration to a different model for the House of Bishops' meetings when there was an issue of particular importance to be dealt with. He commented that often when discussing an important matter, the bishops were rushed at meetings because the item was either not given adequate time on the agenda or was scheduled too late during the meeting. Bishop Morgan responded saying that the Agenda Committee would be happy to consider Archbishop Clarke's recommendation.
Bishop Wallace requested that the full motion (moved by Archbishop Hutchison and seconded by Archbishop Finlay) be faxed to the members of the House of Bishops.
Appendix i
Archbishop Clarke requested that both versions of a motion put before the House of Bishops by Archbishop Hutchison and Archbishop Finlay be appended to the minutes.

Text
That the Primate, after consultation with the House of Bishops, be requested to initiate discussion with the provinces and dioceses of the Anglican Church of Canada regarding:
1) the possible reform of the provincial organization of the Anglican Church of Canada, and, in particular, whether the effectiveness and efficiency of the Anglican Church of Canada would be significantly improved by:
- a) entirely eliminating the four provinces from the organizational structure of the church and transferring the powers and authority the provinces presently hold to the General Synod, or
- b) maintaining the existing provincial structure for some part of its present purpose and transferring part of provincial power and authority, for example part or all of provincial legislative authority, to the General Synod, or
- c) reorganizing the dioceses into groupings with greater common goals, concerns, needs and interests than the collections of dioceses forming the existing provinces.
2) the possible reform of the diocesan organization of the Anglican Church of Canada, in particular by:
- a) adjusting diocesan boundaries to reflect modern transportation patterns and population shifts created by social and economic changes,
- b) reducing the number of dioceses within the Anglican Church of Canada,
- c) implementing any other change that might improve the effectiveness, efficiency, or economy of the operation of dioceses.
Friendly Amendment
The mover and seconder accepted a friendly amendment from the Rev. Stephen Peake to add the words ‘enhance the mission and’ in item 2) c) after the word ‘might’. Item 2) c) now reads:
- c) implementing any other change that might enhance the mission and improve the effectiveness, efficiency or economy of the operation of dioceses.
