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
a) reiterate the request of the Anglican Church of Canada that the Canadian government enforce by legislation total economic sanctions against South Africa;
b) recommend that Canada increase its economic aid to the frontline states (especially Angola and Mozambique), recognizing the need to protect vital infrastructure against sabotage;
c) recommend that Canada take initiatives to urge collective security action with other states and/or respond to initiatives by the United Nations, the Commonwealth, or southern African countries for multilateral collective action;
d) recommend that the Canadian government give bilateral security aid as a defence against destabilization in the frontline states, with special reference to Mozambique. CARRIED #56-11-88
