Notes
"General Synod 2016 might seem far off,, but preparations for the meeting of the Anglican Church of Canada's governing body are well underway, according to Dean Peter Wall, chair of the planning committee". "From July 7-13 [2016], delegates from across the Anglican Church of Canada will meet in Richmond Hill, Ont., for the triennial gathering , where they will discuss and vote on issues ranging from same-sex marriage to a call from the Anglican Council of Indigenous Peoples for a greater degree of self-determination. Because the formula to determine membership has changed since 2013, Wall was unable to say exactly how many delegates are expected. He estimates it would be between 275 and 280. Canon (lay) David Jones, chancellor of General Synod, suggested it will be closer to 245-250. .... Wall noted that the new formula would lower the number of delegates from the more populous dioceses, while it would favour those in smaller dioceses". "With feelings about the marriage canon vote running high, a major concern in planning the synod has been ensuring that discussions and debates around same-sex marriages take place in 'healthy and helpful ways', said Wall. A working group has been set up by Council of General Synod to shape how the discussion leading up to the vote takes place". "Another significant issue that has come up in planning the synod, given the presence of Indigenous delegates, is translation". "This year's special guests, Archbishop Suheil Dawani of the diocese of Jerusalem and Bishop Griselda Delgado del Carpio of the Episcopal diocese of Cuba, have confirmed their attendance".
