That this National Executive Council of the Anglican Church of Canada currently in session, expresses thanksgiving that substantial progress has been achieved in the resolution of Canada's constitutional problem, and continues to hope that further negotiations may enable the Province of Quebec to feel itself a constituting part of our nationhood; but also expresses deep concern that:
1. the elimination of the recognition of the aboriginal and treaty rights of the Indian, Inuit and Metis people of Canada constitutes a crisis as significant as, and equivalent to, that between the Federal and Provincial governments;
2. failure to remedy this situation can only appear to our aboriginal people as calculated contempt for their rights by those who have the moral and constitutional responsibility to safeguard and honour them;
3. Canada will be identified in the eyes of the world as racially oppressive;
4. in our country fundamental moral principles could be sacrificed for political expediency; and above all
5. abdication of moral responsibility is fundamentally abhorrent and ultimately self-defeating,
and therefore urges that the Federal and Provincial governments re-instate the inherent rights of the aboriginal peoples in all appropriate legislation in the constitutional process. CARRIED
Notes
Copies of a letter were circulated, signed on behalf of Native people, addressed to all Christian leaders calling for support with their concern with the Constitution.

Resolved that:
A. We urge the Canadian Government:
1. To accept its proper share of responsibility, in keeping with this country's size and affluence, in providing financial and technical assistance to the developing nations and in the welcoming of immigrants to Canada;
2. To incorporate a Bill of Rights into the Constitution so that these rights will be uniform for all Canadians.
B. We urge our church membership:
1. To take seriously the recommendations of the Anglican Brief presented to the Royal Commission on Bilingualism and Biculturalism which urged Anglicans to recognize the "French fact" as an inherent and essential aspect of Canadian life and culture, and to make a deliberate effort to understand and enter into communication with their French-speaking compatriots;
2. Accept responsibility for keeping informed about international affairs through reading, and through radio and television programs; seeing that provision is made in the parish for the display and sale of pertinent paper backs; through membership in such organizations as the local United Nations Association, World Federalists, the Provincial Association for Human Rights, and the International Institute for International Affairs, etc. CARRIED in both Houses.
