Prologue
Bishop Short reported on behalf of the Task Force which recommended the following as principles for further discussion:
(1) electoral procedures should not be affected by economic considerations
(2) all dioceses should have the same right to elect their bishops
(3) the Province should have a significant role in making nominations in all episcopal elections
(4) the Province should participate in each episcopal election
(5) a Provincial Committee (?) should be in charge of all nominations, which may be submitted from the Church-at-large.
It was pointed out that one of the least defined areas in the Episcopacy is that of Suffragan, and agreed that this requires further study, along with a consideration of more extensive opportunities for the translation of Bishops.
Text
"That this House strike a Task Force to give serious consideration to the matter of episcopal elections in the light of the recommendations presented to the House at the December, 1974, meeting, and that a report of their considerations be presented at the next meeting of the House." CARRIED

He will be installed Sept. 29 [2012] at Calgary's Cathedral Church of the Redeemer, and succeeds Bishop Derek Hoskin, who has retired. The election took place June 15 [2012] at St. Peter's Anglican Church in Calgary. In all, five candidates were considered for the position.

"Bishop Michael Ingham has announced that he will be retiring from his position as bishop of the diocese of New Westminster on Aug. 31, 2013. The diocese 'has been at the forefront of positive change in the Church for decades', Ingham said in an announcement on the website of the diocese. 'From the ordination of women, to support for indigenous peoples, to the dignity of gay and lesbian Christians, to inter-faith dialogue -- it has been a privilege to serve a Diocese living and growing at some of the leading edges of the Anglican Church of Canada'. Bishop Ingham will lead the diocesan delegation to the General Synod in Ottawa in July [2013]. He has served as the bishop of New Westminster since 1994 and is currently the longest-serving active Anglican bishop in Canada". [Text of entire article.]
