Since the termination of Project North in 1987, further evaluation and consultation between the churches in Canada has led to a new coalition on aboriginal justice concerns. This is the result of discussion between the churches, network groups, and native organizations. It shifts the focus of the former Project North to include justice issues for native people all over Canada and is based upon the church leaders' recent statement: "A New Covenant".
That this National Executive Council support and participate fully in the new coalition: Project North - Ecumenical Coalition for Aboriginal Justice; and request the Program Committee to appoint two representatives from the Anglican Church of Canada to its Steering Committee. CARRIED #54-11-88
"These writings centre around the modern paradigm of 'knowledge': behaviorist explanation in terms of algebra. This account is at the core of the fate of western civilisation. Because the conquest of human and non-human nature is at the heart of modern science, I describe that science as 'technological'." -- Preface.
