For more than 100 years faithful women have served the church in Parish, Diocesan and National levels. Upon integration, the National Church and Anglican Women entered into certain agreements. We ask the church to honour these intentions and practices. We request that any new structures provide access for church women, financial resources and staff assistance.'"

Prologue
The Prolocutor read the following Ruling, re Admission of Women to the Lower House.
Text
The language of the Constitution rendering it necessary to determine whether male or female persons, or both, are intended:
1. It is certain that only men were in contemplation when the law was made:
2. It is equally certain that women would not have been included had the point arisen:
3. It is a principle of legal interpretation that in questions of doubtful terminology, regard should be had to the intention of those making the law:
The Chair therefore rules that until the General Synod positively enact otherwise, women are not entitled to membership in the Lower House.

"The sixty years during which the Anglican Women's Training College has served the Canadian Church coincide with an effort in our Anglican Communion to revive the Order of Deaconesses.
