November 19, 1993 -- The Primate of the Anglican Church of Canada, Archbishop Michael Peers, has issued the following statement in response to the episcopal election in the Diocese of Toronto.
The Diocese of Toronto, and the whole of the Anglican Church of Canada, today rejoice in the election of two fine new priests as bishops. Both Michael Bedford-Jones and Victoria Matthews offer gifts of leadership that will complement and add to those already present in others who hold episcopal office.
But in particular, I welcome with profound joy and sheer delight, the election of a woman as bishop in the Church in Canada. The ordination of women to the priesthood in our church has been part of our experience in Canada for 17 years now. During that time we have been blessed by the particular graces that they have brought to ordained ministry. I am sure that it is no accident that our Church is growing more compassionate and nurturing in its pastoral work, more thorough and inclusive in its communication, and more prophetic in its commitment to justice. Though ground-breaking in its effect, today's decision is a natural outcome of years of caring and effective leadership offered by women.
In recent weeks, I have had occasions to participate in different events with the four women who are already bishops in the Anglican Communion. I have been reminded again of the wholeness we seek in Christ's Church, -- indeed in all of society. It is a wholeness which Saint Paul envisaged when he wrote: "There is no longer Jew or Greek, no longer slave or free, there is no longer male and female; for all of you are one in Christ Jesus". (Galations 3:28) Today the Spirit of God, through the Synod of Toronto, has helped us further that vision in our time. May it continue to be encouraged among us.
I look forward to working with Victoria and to welcoming her to he place in the national House of Bishops. I have no doubt that she will receive a glad welcome and the whole-hearted support of all her colleagues in episcopal ministry.

Notes
The author met with Bishop Victoria Matthews of Edmonton, Canada, when she was in Australia in September 2001. Includes biographical information and discussion of her vocation, election as the first woman bishop in the Anglican Church of Canada, and relations with clergy who do not recognize the ordination of women. "`He and I exchange the peace very publicly at every time there is a diocesan service. He doesn't receive from me, but he does come, and he has been my chaplain on a number of occasions. We make sure that we share the responsibility and pain of our impaired communion. We made an absolute agreement that we would make this work.' That was what was at the heart of the Lambeth resolution about respecting differences, Bishop Victoria believes. 'We can hold the body together with respect, but I don't think that includes protocols that limit women bishops', she says. 'What you do is say that there is always going to be someone in the Diocese who needs the ministry of someone else, but that it is the responsibility of the Diocesan to call that person in, and not to have a separate parallel protocol'."
