Text
That this General Synod:
1. express our moral outrage at the human suffering caused by the international debt crisis affecting Latin America, Africa, Asia and the Caribbean;
2 a) recognize that in some cases the debt has been repaid by net transfer of wealth;
b) endorse the principle that the debt of the heavily indebted countries be reduced to a level which is humanly possible for these countries to carry and which will leave within these countries sufficient capital to promote their own development;
c) urge that the debt owed by the poorest countries to the governments of the industrialized countries be eliminated;
3. support existing ecumenical coalitions in their on-going work on international debt;
4. urge the government of Canada to join in calling for an International Conference on the debt crisis, and to participate actively in a process of negotiation towards a new framework for international trade and finance, that would respect the need for self-reliant economic development.

That this National Executive Council of the Anglican Church of Canada adopt the following policy and urge that policy upon the Canadian government:
1. That urgent measures be undertaken to cancel outstanding debt owed by sub-Saharan African countries including debts to the Export Development Corporation and to the Canadian Wheat Board.
2. That Canada support alternatives to assist economic recovery and development as outlined in the "African Alternative Framework to Structural Adjustment Programmes" and the "African Charter for Popular Participation in Development."
3. That Africa remain on the U.N. agenda by keeping the primary responsibility for coordinating and monitoring programmes with the U.N. and not the Global Coalition for Africa.
4. That the Canadian government address the African economic crisis at all appropriate multi-lateral fora in which Canada participates, such as the Commonwealth, la Francophonie and the G-7. CARRIED #44-11-91
