Notes
Though his diocese and the national church have policies against gambling, Archbishop Jones explains, "there is hardly a parish in the diocese that does not hold raffles or condone gambling in some way". Archbishop Jones deplores the prevalence of gambling in Manitoba but also says that a strong stand against gambling on reservations is inappropriate as it is seen as another attempt at subjugation.
