Toronto, Feb. 14, 1986 -- For immediate release
The man whose name most commonly springs to mind when anyone says "Anglican" in Canada, is Ted Scott. The beloved and controversial "Archbishop Ted" will step down as Primate of the Church in June, after more than fifteen years as senior Archbishop of the country's approximately one million Anglicans.
His successor will be elected and installed at the thirty-first session of the Church's General Synod to be held in Winnipeg at the University of Manitoba from June 14 to 22.
The General Synod meets every three years and is the highest parliament and policy-making body of the Canadian Church. Reports will be received on all national and international work of the Church, and future policies and plans will be discussed. One major decision to be made concerns the future Anglican involvement in the Canadian Interfaith Television Network (CIN).
There will be a fully equipped and staffed Media Centre for the use of all accredited journalists throughout the Synod, the sessions of which are all open to the media.
Detailed releases on subjects to be discussed, format and agenda will be forthcoming in the weeks ahead, but make plans now to cover this highly significant event.

That when the report on the Canadian Interfaith Network has been received and questions addressed to the Committee, the House move into "in camera" to discuss the report. CARRIED #5-10-84
Notes
N.B. In camera minutes NOT included in electronic database.
The Rev. W. Lowe introduced the Rev. David MacDonald, president-Elect of the Canadian Interfaith Television Network, Dr. David Nostbakken, who has special responsibility for production and animation and the Rev. Canon Ebert Hobbs who has been involved in funding and development.
Mr. Lowe said that the two to three day hearing is to be held before the C.R.T.C. in November in Hull, Quebec. He reported that data revealed in the public hearing would be reviewed, and if approved, the licence will be issued in January or February of 1985.
Mr. MacDonald said that a free, no-pay television licence has been applied for. He stressed that a key question is the situation with the Roman Catholic Church whose real problem is both size and the Anglophone/Francophone division, further complicated by the fact that the Roman Catholic Church has had no personnel for communications for the past several years. He reported that the Canadian Conference of Catholic Bishops said that they felt it would not be appropriate for them to become further involved, as a Conference of Bishops, but would encourage regional participation.
Canon Hobbs reviewed financial statements which were distributed, for information. He reported that a Feasibility Study is now being conducted by Community Charitable Counselling Service and that their report will be part of the public document which is available at the Hearing. Among the questions and concerns raised by the Bishops were the following:
- What is the potential viewing audience ?
- What are the financial implications ?
- It was recognized that neo-religious groups will be given air time as well.
Dr. Nostbakken spoke regarding the Children's Broadcasting Institute. He said that research reveals that there is a large concern on the part of parents and teachers regarding the quality of programs which reach children. He stated that television has become a way of life for children and that, by the time they have graduated from high school, they have watched on an average of 15,000 hours of television. This has a great influence on their beliefs and attitudes.
Concern was expressed regarding production costs. Mr. MacDonald expressed the opinion that the C.R.T.C. will accept the Canadian Interfaith Network application, and Mr. Lowe added that the C.R.T.C. is concerned that the coalition of religious communities stay together in this endeavour.
Archbishop Scott reminded the Bishops that there is to be a meeting at 9:30 a.m. on Tuesday, 6th November regarding the Canadian Interfaith Network, and enquired as to the possibility of any of the Bishops being present at that meeting. Unfortunately, all of the Bishops indicated that other commitments made attendance at that meeting impossible.
The Primate shared a letter which had been sent to the Rev. David MacDonald from the Jesuits in which they expressed enthusiastic support and indicated that financial support would be available for the Canadian Interfaith Network. The Jesuits indicated in their letter that they would encourage other Roman Catholic groups to give their support to the project.

That the National Executive Council:
1. Approve the "Canadian Interfaith Communications Network" proposal as a basis for Anglican membership in an Interfaith Consortium, with the proviso that The Anglican Church of Canada reserve the right to re-examine its position following consideration by the Canadian Radio & Television Corporation when financial implications and the ultimate participants are more readily apparent.
2. Authorize Interchurch Communications to act on its behalf in relating to the Rosewell Group and in the development of an Interfaith Consortium for the purposes of applying to the Canadian Radio-television and Telecommunications Commission (CRTC) for a licence to broadcast satellite to cable.
3. Approve budget estimates for licence application to the CRTC and authorize expenditures up to $75,000 from Anglicans in Mission overage (see National Case) to cover costs from January 1, 1984 to the time of a public hearing by the CRTC, May/June 1984. It is understood that, as other faith communities take up support and membership, Anglican funding will be reduced. CARRIED
