"Bishop Gregory Kerr-Wilson of the diocese of Qu'Appelle has been elected the new bishop for the diocese of Calgary. 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 Kerr-Wilson describes himself as an 'evangelical, charismatic Catholic with liberal and conservative tendencies'. He is focused on local leadership 'rather than simply thinking about survival', he says. 'The church's capital is its people and their faith'." [Text of entire article.]

"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.]

"Canadian Anglican bishops have responded to General Synod's provisional vote on same-sex marriage in starkly different ways: a number have called for prayers, some announced they will now allow religious weddings for same-sex couples and others have expressed anxiety about unity in the church". "The impact of the vote was undeniable. Some bishops and members of their dioceses were noticeably absent at the meeting's closing worship July 12 [2016], including those who had walked out after it was announced that the same-sex marriage motion had passed".

"At its May 1 [2015] assembly, the Anglican Parishes of the Central Interior (APCI) unanimously passed a historic resolution asking the synod of the ecclesiastical province of British Columbia and the Yukon to recognize APCI as a territory with rights to elect a bishop through its own nomination and electoral processes" (p. 1). "If APCI becomes a territory, it will be named as a geographic area and it will 'enshrine our unique governance model', said [Bishop Barbara] Andrews" (p. 1). "APCI's members would like to attain a greater degree of autonomy over their affairs, but they also do not seek to become a diocese. Bud Smith, speaking on behalf of the bishop's task force, explained the reluctance to return to a diocesan form of organization as being rooted in a commitment to practicing concrete reconciliation" (p. 16). "As part of this, back in 2001, APCI committed to placing the needs and considerations of its indigenous members first, followed by the needs and considerations of the non-Indigenous parishes, and finally, the administrative needs and functions of the ecclesiastical province. It is a commitment that APCI has attempted to realize by providing its Indigenous members with 15 extra seats with voice and vote at its assembly, in addition to those already held by delegates from Indigenous parishes" (p. 16).

"In a written response to a statement issue by eight Canadian bishops expressing their dissent from General Synod's decision to move toward solemnizing same-sex marriages, Archbishop Fred Hiltz, primate of the Anglican Church of Canada, pushed back against several of the points they had raised". "'The question you ask is really a question for all members of the church. To what extent can we and will we make room for one another ? To what extent will we pastorally accommodate one another ' Hiltz said in his letter". "Hiltz said that the motion, which was declared to have failed before being reversed the next day due to an error, was 'difficult', but it had allowed many synod members to 'experience the pain of another whose view on this matter is very different' in a 'very powerful way'." "The dissenting bishops' statement was released July 15 [2016] by then Bishop Stephen Andrews (Algoma); Bishop David Parsons (Arctic); Suffragan Bishop Darren McCartney (Arctic); Bishop Larry Robertson (Yukon); Bishop Fraser Lawton (Athabasca); and Bishop Michael Hawkins (Saskatchewan). Bishop David Edwards, of the diocese of Fredericton, was not an original signatory, but he added his name to the statement later".

"The next time the bishop of the diocese of British Columbia resigns, the diocese may not elect a new one. At its biennial synod Mar. 6 to 7 [2010], the diocese changed its canon (church law), Now the viability of the diocese must be determined before a bishop can be elected. If the diocese is not viable, a bishop from another diocese can be called to step in."

"After eight years in the role, Bishop Robert Bennett, of the diocese of Huron, will retire Nov. 1, 2016. Bennett, who became diocesan bishop in 2008 after serving as suffragan (assistant) bishop of the diocese for six years, announced his retirement last spring. Succeeding him will be Bishop Linda Nicholls, who was elected coadjutor bishop of the diocese February 13 [2016]. Bennett said one of the great privileges he enjoyed as bishop was the chance to witness first-hand the ministry being done in parishes across the diocese". "Among the most troubling things he witnessed as bishop, Bennett said, was the divisiveness caused by the issue of human sexuality. 'I think it's taken a great toll both within congregations and the House of Bishops', he said".
