"When the program of the missionary work in Venezuela by Canadians was ended (a program dedicated principally to social work) by action of the Anglican Church of Canada (ACC) announced on May 14, 1970, almost all of the financial support of the ACC was ended, leaving only the salary of Bishop Guy Marshall and certain administrative funds. For a number of reasons, the ACC decided, in January of 1971, that it could not continue its support of the Bishop 'unless and until the feasibility study had been carried out.' .... there resulted an impasse or disagreement which increased in intensity until the Consultation in Puerto Rico (the 14 and 15 of September, 1971), when the ACC, the Archbishop and representatives of the Anglican Church in Venezuela (IAV), agreed to carry our this 'feasibility study' after which the ACC would decide if it would continue its support, and if so, for how much longer. It on the basis of this decision that the ACC authorized the expenditure of $5,000 for the Study, which sum was given to the Consejo [Consejo Consultivo] of the IAV so that it might carry out the Study, select the directors thereof and receive the Report on April 30 or, at the latest, May 30, 1972, a date which was also set by Canada". -- p. .
