Notes
"A desire to stay together as a church, despite a diverse range of understandings of what marriage is and should be. The theme arose consistently during discussions across three sessions at the November [2018] meeting of Council of General Synod (CoGS) regarding the proposed amendment to the marriage canon". But exactly how this 'theme' or aim, may be fulfilled is more complicated. In a session titled 'Marriage Canon: Way Forward, Next Steps' on November 25 [2018], CoGS members began to consider the potential for an acknowledgement of a variety of understandings of marriage within the Anglican Church of Canada" (p. 1.) "According to Canon (lay) David Jones, chancellor of General Synod, after being passed at General Synod 2016, the resolution (A051) to amend the marriage canon must go into its second reading with the same language. However, the constitution does provide that the resolution can be amended at its second reading" (p. 8). "Some in the church have lamented the need for a parliamentary system at all for the issue" (p. 8). Chancellor David "Jones, speaking at CoGS in response to [Anglican Indigenous Bishop] MacDonald's presentation, said that he is 'not discouraged at all by our legislative process', saying. 'There is some wisdom in the declaration principle that requires two readings at two successive General Synods', which gives the church the opportunity to 'listen and hear' the concerns of different groups" (p. 8).

Notes
Siobhan Bennett, a youth member from the ecclesiastical province of Ontario, shared a story about how her work at a Niagara Falls, Ont. hotel, brought her in contact with an incident of human trafficking and the child sex trade. "Bennett's story was just one of a number of human trafficking-related presentations CoGS heard at the [June 2017] session, which also included prayer and the lighting of candles by Archbishop Fred Hiltz, primate of the Anglican Church of Canada; the screening of a short film on human trafficking by Anglican Video; and several minutes of silent reflection. The session concluded with a motion that CoGS endorse an anti-human trafficking resolution approved by the Anglican Consultative Council in 2012" (p. 6). "'Human trafficking is .. not something that Canadians are always thinking about, but somewhere near here, right now, someone is being trafficked and exploited', said Ryan Weston, lead animator of public witness for social and ecological justice for the Anglican Church of Canada" (p. 6).

"General Synod can be expected to vote in July [2019] on a proposed 'gradual exit strategy from print' for the 'Anglican Journal' and other church print publications, as well as a revised mandate for the Journal that might not include editorial independence, following a series of votes by Council of General Synod (CoGS)" (p. 1). "One of the concerns the report expresses about printing the newspapers is the cost, including postage. Postage, the report states, has been rising in recent years, and in 2017 total postage expenses reached $920,000. .... The net cost per subscriber of producing ten issues per year of the 'Anglican Journal' was $5.28 in 2017, the report adds. The fourth motion deals with the 'Anglican Journal's' mandate and governance. It calls on CoGS to instruct the working group to complete, before the next meeting of CoGS in March [2019], an editorial mandate and set of journalistic guidelines for the newspaper, taking into account views expressed at the current meeting of CoGS" (p. 9). "The fifth motion calls on CoGS to ask the group to prepare an amendment, to be brought before General Synod in July [2019], to the section of the national church canons dealing with the Anglican Journal Committee -- currently the newspaper's publisher" (p. 9). "Also at CoGS, Meghan Kilty, the Anglican Church of Canada's communications director, presented a report to CoGS outlining a new communications strategy for the church .... It envisages ... moving 'to a single digital channel for stories and news about the church'" (p. 9).

Prologue
A motion was introduced by the Planning and Agenda Team requiring the Commission on the Marriage Canon report be circulated to members and to the co-chairs of the Planning and Agenda Team followed by a teleconference to decide how and when the report would be circulated further.
Members fully discussed the motion proposed, the role of CoGS, options and processes, preserving the principles of openness and transparency, and how best to receive and distribute the report.
After much consideration, The Ven. Harry Huskins, at the request of the Primate, assumed the chair and the Primate proposed that a special council meeting be convened for the commission to make a formal presentation to members, for members to consider how to take it and the resolution to General Synod, and for public release of the report.
The Primate resumed the chair, the original motion withdrawn by consensus and a new motion proposed.
Text
Be it resolved:
That this council affirms the Primate’s proposal to call a special session of this council for the purpose of receiving and considering the report of the Commission on the Marriage Canon.
ADOPTED by unanimous consensus #07-05-15

"In other news, CoGS: Approved a resolution to hold a joint meeting with the National Church Council, its counterpart body in the Evangelical Lutheran Church in Canada (ELCIC), on November 13 to 15, 2015. It also approved, in principle, that the Anglican Church of Canada will hold a joint assembly with the ELCIC in 2019. The two churches, which are in full communion, held a joint assembly for the first time in 2013. The joint meeting in 2015 will allow both churches 'time and flexibility' to plan the joint assembly, said Dean Peter Wall, Anglican co-chair of the Joint Anglican-Lutheran Commission".
