Moved by: Ven. D.J. Woeller
Seconded by: Dr. D.N. Maybee
That the privileges of the House be extended to the Reverend Michael Hicks. CARRIED #38-05-88
The Reverend Michael Hicks, Mrs. Amy Newell and Archdeacon David Woeller joined in presenting the report of the Task Force and invited comments and questions.
Mr. Hicks said that it would be very important for the church to do careful research and analysis, to enter into dialogue and to speak with a critical voice. Lobbyists he has spoken with have expressed the view that there is a vital role for the churches to play and they should be encouraged.
Much discussion centred around financial implications, increasing the assessment budget and how the items in this budget are evaluated and ranked in priority.
Seconded by: Mrs. A. Newell
That the National Executive Council authorize the appointment by the Primate of a National Affairs Liaison Officer by July 1, 1990, and request the Administration and Finance Committee to provide the necessary funding, including an exploration of a possible partnership with the Diocese of Ottawa. A careful evaluation of this work is to be undertaken not later than three years after its establishment.

Prologue
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".
Text
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
