Notes
"We might have a more technically correct title to this Bulletin, but we desire to distinguish it from Bulletin No. 108, to which it is a direct sequel. That Bulletin, entitled `Social Insurance and Material Aid in Canada', was published in May 1942. We publish this Bulletin to keep the clergy of our Church and other readers abreast of governmental movements towards an adequate plan of `social security' for our people." "Our Council for Social Service, acting carefully under General Synod and its Executive Council, has urged a closer co-operation of provincial and federal action, a unified plan for a minimum income for all the disabilities of life, and in appropriate matters the active participation of all in a contributory plan". "As well, however, this present Bulletin has a more practical object -- to let our clergy, particularly, know what actual measures of assistance are available for their people, for Old Age, Children, Mothers, the Family, the sick and helpless." "Dr. Charlotte Whitton, a member of our Council, has again come to our aid. The main article in the Bulletin, with its various schedules, has been supplied by her. Under her three main headings, Dr. Whitton has indicated the differences between Social Insurance (for Unemployment only, thus far), Social Assistance, and the more general (but very practical) Social Utilities from which all citizens derive help. We are indebted to her. As we go to press public announcement has been made of annual grants amounting to $30,000,000 to be made by the Federal Government to the Provinces to assist them in various improvements or additions to their health services. This is welcome news. We trust that all Provinces will participate in the responsibilities and benefits. This may prove to be a first step towards a plan for nation-wide health services on a prepaid basis". -- Editor's Note.

Notes
Alexander John Doull was born in Halifax to a Church of Scotland family. Orphaned within days of his birth, he received his higher education and ordination in England before returning to Canada, first to Montreal, before moving to Victoria B.C. as dean of the Cathedral in January 1910. On 25 November 1914 he was elected the first bishop of Kootenay, resigning in June 1933 to take up a position as assistant bishop and archdeacon in Sheffield before ill health compelled his resignation and return in the Okanagan Valley in 1935. "Alarmed by the vast number of non-Anglo-Saxon immigrants to British Columbia the bishop considered also that the province of Quebec was becoming injurious to Canada and he implored Anglo-Canadians to unite to counteract the influence of the French-speaking sections of the population" (p. 104). "The unemployment of the depression days was also of grave concern to him and he strongly supported the resolution brought forward at the diocesan synod (Vernon, 26-27 May 1931) which would establish movable camps as a means of relief" (p. 104). Bishop Doull attended the Lambeth Conferences of 1920 and 1930 and "was selected to serve with seventy others on the Committee for Church Union" (p. 105). "Throughout his entire ministry this matter of church union had been of utmost importance and he rejoiced when the United Church of Canada was formed in 1925, and he continued to speak for a union that would include all Christian people" (p. 106).
Author "is a daughter of Bishop Doull". -- p. 108.

Notes
"Editor's Note: This Bulletin is largely to Clergy. We trust that, as such, it will not appear too presumptuous. It has been a growing custom for the Church, through her intercessions and messages on 'Labour Sunday' to intercede with God on behalf of the troubled groups of society and to direct the minds of our peoples to economic difficulties of the day and the Christian solution for them. This custom we believe to be wise. We give appropriate prayers from our booklet, 'Our Common Task Before the Throne' and we suggest other Collects from the Prayer Book for use that day under proper authority at altar and prayer desk. We pay a tribute to Archdeacon Fotheringham for his very pointed, suggestive sermon which issues a high challenge and at the same time sets it forth in a fine Christian spirit". -- p. [1].
"Today in Canada we must still preach the right of every willing man to work, even if it can be attained only by staggering employment, shortening hours, increasing the rolls of workmen, and still giving a decent living wage. There is still need, too, for Christian agitation for contributory Unemployment Insurance. The political barrier (as between Federal and Provincial Governments) which has been suddenly found in the way thereto must be broken through". -- p. 3.

Notes
"While the dramatic downturn in oil prices that has occurred over the past six months has had a wide-ranging impact on economic prospects across Canada, those who have been hit hardest are people who were already on the margins, according to the Rev. Dale [sic i.e. Dane] Neufeld, priest-in-charge of the parish of Fort McMurray, Alta. 'There's an impression that Fort McMurray is a city paved in gold', said Neufeld, 'and people do make a lot of money here, but a lot of the people who came here [did so] because they needed work. They came here from hard scenarios in many cases, from economically depressed areas in the country and in the world. He also noted that many of these workers, especially those from the Maritimes, are sustaining their communities back home through their wages, and that layoffs in Alberta could have wide-ranging consequences for economically marginalized communities around the country" (p. 1, 9). "The church's response has largely been pastoral" (p. 9). "But while many of the layoffs have hurt vulnerable contractors and migrant labourers from within Canada and abroad, [Bishop of Athabasca Fraser] Lawton noted that there has not been a lot of sympathy for the workers. 'Something that has been really interesting to see is the cruel delight people take in thinking Alberta is getting its comeuppance', he said" (p. 9). "Lawton and Neufeld both acknowledged the complexity of the situation. While the oil sands are providing many with a living, it has not come without environmental costs" (p. 9).
