That this National Executive Council of the Anglican Church of Canada, recognizing that the churches in Japan oppose the enforcement of finger-printing under the Alien Registrations Law of that country particularly as a means of discrimination against those of Korean ancestry resident for generations in Japan, request the Primate to approach on our behalf the Government of Canada and the Japanese Embassy in Ottawa, expressing our concern about this matter to the Japanese authorities, and inform the Nippon Sei Ko Kai and the National Christian Council of Japan of these actions. CARRIED
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
