Prologue
Bishop Nock reminded the house of the General Secretary's letter to all the Bishops in which the following two questions were asked:
(a) Would the Bishops support a revision of the Declaration of Principles of General Synod to make clear that General Synod has authority to enact legislation regarding licensing?
The Bishops agreed that they would support this revision, and that the revised wording be referred to the Provincial Synods.
(b) Should the legislation provide for the disciplining of laity as well as clergy ?
Text
That this House is of the opinion that the proposed Canon XVIII should be entitled "Ecclesiastical Discipline" and should be in three parts:
(a) The first paragraph of Canon XXII or similar statement.
(b) Ecclesiastical discipline respecting the clergy as in proposed Canon XVIII.
(c) Ecclesiastical discipline respecting the laity following somewhat similar lines to those in "B." CARRIED 9-2-82

Prologue
This [Metropolitans and Chancellors Meeting] was held in Winnipeg in December 1989. Archbishop Bothwell dealt with the substance of the meeting which concerned the licensing and discipline of clergy. Copies of a letter from Chancellor David Wright to the Primate were distributed. Chancellor Wright recommends that the terms of the license for diocesan clergy would include agreement by the bishop, the licensee and the parish.
During the ensuing discussion it was recognized that safeguards would be necessary to ensure that the Canon is not seen as tyrannical, but supportive to bishops, priests and parishes. It was recognized that there are inconsistencies in diocesan, provincial and General Synod Canons which lead to serious problems.
Text

This 'model' Canon should be available for discussion at the February 1991 meeting of this House. CARRIED
