It was noted that ACIP, after lengthy discussion, had removed the word "reconciliation" from the title, preferring at this time "a walking in partnership".

Prologue
Archbishop Morgan drew to the attention of Council to the matter of ethical investments, pointing out that the Pension Committee is as concerned as is the rest of the church about ethical investments. He added, however, that it is not the responsibility of the Pension Committee to create its own ethical investment guidelines. The Pension Committee is seeking the kind of guidelines that would enable it to do its' own screening. The Committee has volunteered to draft a guideline for General Synod, so that they would have something external to guide them. Archbishop Morgan also noted that the Pension Plan would need the consent of the owners before a guideline could be enacted.
An in-depth discussion on ethical investments followed. Concern was expressed that the Pension Plan holds shares in Talisman and that, as ACC's investments are in pooled funds, there was no guarantee that it does not hold such shares. Archdeacon Boyles questioned what his response should be to the request of the Executive Council of BC and the Canadian Council of Refugees to divest of Talisman shares ? Should it be that we received the report and took no action ?
Text
That the Trustees of the Pension Committee be requested to provide a draft Ethical Investment Policy for the Anglican Church of Canada by the Fall of 2001, consulting with appropriate groups. CARRIED #38-03-01
Notes
Dr. Eleanor Johnson noted that Eco-Justice Committee is aware of members and others who are upset with the Pension Fund holding Talisman shares, and that the Committee has considered polling the members of the plan for instruction to divest. Archbishop Morgan noted that polling the members would not be a very responsible approach to ethical investment. PWRDF has a motion going to General Synod regarding ethical investments.
