Following discussions at our February meeting, this House wishes to express the following message to the committee presently evaluating the Anglican Journal:
The House recognizes the importance of the Anglican Journal and appreciates its value as an instrument of the gospel both within and beyond the Church.
The House views the task of the Journal as a ministry to and of the Church. That ministry is both educational and prophetic in nature. The distinct task of the Church paper, when compared to the secular press, is to encourage and connect the members of the Church with news of the life of the Church, and to interpret world events from a Christian point-of-view.
To this end, the editor of the Anglican Journal needs to be a person who understands the work as a calling to ministry. The person appointed should be chosen as one who is informed by a convinced Christian conscience and who is an active participant in a local Christian community.
In searching for people to work for the Church paper we believe it is the task of the Church to identify and encourage active members who have journalistic skills and experience to engage in this work as a calling and ministry. CARRIED

That General Synod approve the following Terms of Reference for the Anglican Journal/Journal Anglican:
The Publication
1. Anglican Journal/Journal Anglican is the national newspaper of the Anglican Church of Canada, but it is not the official voice of the Church.
2. The newspaper has a primary responsibility to inform Anglicans in Canada about the domestic and international work of their church, but also to provide relevant news of the worldwide communion and from other faith communities. It has a role in the presentation of our faith and in stimulating debate on issues of concern to the church.
3. As a church-sponsored and financed paper, the Anglican Journal/Journal Anglican is an important instrument of communication for the Anglican Church of Canada. Acting in accordance with priorities and policies established by the Information Resources Committee in consultation with the Anglican Journal/Journal Anglican Advisory Board and approved by the Council of the General Synod, the editor makes all decisions on editorial content.
4. The paper is encouraged to express the full range of opinion within the Anglican Church community. It is permitted to take an independent stance in its editorials. When such expression of opinion conflicts with official church policy, as stated by decisions of the General Synod or the Council of the General Synod, the paper will, at the same time, carry an explanation by an informed spokesperson of the official position of the church.
5. The Anglican Journal/Journal Anglican operates in accordance with the Statement of Ethics and Standards of Professional Practice of the Associated Church Press.
The Publisher
6. The Information Resources Committee is the publisher of Anglican Journal/Journal Anglican.
7. The Information Resources Committee reports to the General Synod and the Council of the General Synod.

- three members appointed by the Council of the General Synod
- one member of the Information Resources Committee, from among the members of the committee
- one member appointed by the Primate.
9. The Advisory Board shall elect a Chairperson.
10. The Chairperson shall be responsible for summoning meetings of the Advisory Board, setting the agenda and presiding at the meetings.
11. The Advisory Board shall meet a minimum of twice a year. It reports to each meeting of the Information Resources Committee and presents its budget to the Council of the General Synod through the Information Resources Committee.
12. Other responsibilities:
a) to develop and propose to the Information Resources Committee long term policy for the editorial, advertising and circulation departments, and to monitor its implementation. Long term policy statements are approved by the Council of the General Synod and shall be reviewed by the Advisory Board at least every three years;
b) to work with the Information Resources Committee in recommending to the Council of the General Synod a candidate for appointment as Editor of the paper;
c) to review at each meeting, editorial content of previous issues in the light of editorial policy guidelines;
d) to provide suggestions for future coverage;
e) to be available to provide advice to the Editor on editorial or policy matters;
f) to interpret the work of the paper to the General Synod, the Council of the General Synod and church members across the country;
g) to solicit and evaluate feedback and advice from readers;
h) to develop advertising strategy;
i) to consider and propose to the Information Resources Committee a process for approving business contracts for production and distribution of the paper.

Notes
The editor writes his "own version of 'Thanks for the Memories', as my role as the interim managing editor of the Journal ends. I will continue my work for the primate, but in terms of the Journal, this is my final editorial". He thanks several people including Sam Carriere, the Journal staff, and finally "the readers and supporters of the Journal". "You have shared thoughts, offered words of hope, argued and debated, and criticized -- all to the good. The Journal's mandate is not to be the official voice of the Anglican church but a place of diversity that needs to be independent and reflect the variety of Anglican opinions across this country and within the Anglican Communion. Your generous financial support says how much you believe in a newspaper that is delivered to your home for a remarkable 32 cents each month (taking into account all the costs, such as staff, printing, mailing -- everything) and a website that shares fresh news many times each week. In 2013 the Journal's revenue, including among other things advertising, grants and especially your donations, was 12.5 per cent of the national budget -- the second-highest total after diocesan contributions".
