Notes
Bishop Donald Phillips, of Rupert's Land, has announced his "plan to retire this fall [2018], after the election of a coadjutor bishop in June". "Phillips, [63], who elected bishop in 2000, says of his 18 years as bishop, he considers the last six his favourite, due to both his greater wealth of experience and a slow shift in the 'culture' of the diocese. 'I would say the diocese is less anxious, less fearful and more trusting that it was when I began'. Phillips says he's been glad to see the achievements of his diocese in the area of Indigenous ministries and reconciliation -- 'There's a lot more to do, but I'm pleased with where that has gone' -- and collaboration with the Evangelical Lutheran Church in Canada's Manitoba/Northern Ontario Synod, which shares offices with the diocese of Rupert's Land. He is also proud of the diocese's emphasis on discipleship, which it began to stress in 2012".

Notes
Mr. George Axon, Expenditures Committee, indicated that the Committee had a difficult time determining the source of the funds required by this motion. Since there is no Program Budget for 1990, the funds would have to be found by re-allocating work presently being done, or from extra-budetary sources. The allocation of funds would be written into the Program or Assessment Budgets for the first time in 1991.
