Notes
"Eleven of the Anglican Church of Canada's 30 dioceses will have no members on the Council of General Synod (CoGS) for the next three years. The election of CoGS members took place after a resolution was passed to cut 42 members down to 31 as a cost-saving measure". Synod "then added members by giving voting privileges to two observers from the Anglican Council of Indigenous Peoples (ACIP), and one vote to the partner representative of the Evangelical Lutheran Church in Canada."

Notes
"This month [November 2016], the new members of Council of General Synod (CoGS) -- who will help govern the church for the 2016-2019 triennium -- meet for the first time. ... a majority of them are fresh faces -- only about five of the 27 (excluding seven offices of General Synod) have served the council in the previous triennium or in recent years. This is an exciting development. The infusion of new blood in any organization is generally seen as a good thing, ripe with promise of alternative ideas and infectious energy". "One hopes that CoGS will uphold this ideal of transparency and accountability at all times. This extends to granting the 'Anglican Journal' unimpeded access and thinking twice about in-camera meetings". "Transparency and accountability are particularly crucial at this time when the church is faced with divisiveness over the issue of same-sex marriage. Canadian Anglicans are looking at their church for clarity, honesty and for courageous leadership on this and many other critical issues of the day".
