Prologue
Bishop Hollis expressed concern about the article in the Canadian Churchman regarding the election of a Suffragan Bishop in the Diocese of Toronto. He said that the Churchman should be an educational tool and should teach that election is people coming together to seek God's will and not "seek election".
Bishop Read said that the article was discussed at the recent meeting of the Churchman Board. He said that the Board recognized that the nomination of a women was newsworthy, and that this had received wide publicity in the secular press.
Text

Notes
It was agreed that the Primate should raise the concern of the House with the National Executive Council at the time of the Churchman report to the National Executive Council.
