Notes
"The Anglican Church of Canada's General Synod has requested bishops and deans to focus, for 22 days, from May 31 to June 21 [2017], on renewing the church's commitment to support the work of the Anglican Fund for Healing and Reconciliation through prayers, participation in awareness-raising campaigns and donations. Early this year [2017], Council of General Synod (CoGS) agreed to dedicate the undesignated proceeds of Giving with Grace, General Synod's annual fundraising campaign, to replenish the fund. For the next five years, the fund -- created in 1992 as part of the Indian Residential Schools Settlement Agreement -- will focus on language recovery". General Secretary, Archdeacon Michael Thompson, "stressed that while the Anglican Church of Canada has met its legal obligations under the settlement agreement, 'we're far from finished with our spiritual and moral obligation to continue to support the healing work that is underway among those survivors and in those communities'."

Notes
"A British Columbia Supreme Court justice [Marion J. Allan] on May 28 [2008] ruled that a group of dissident parishioners at Victoria's St. Mary of the Incarnation, Metchosin, diocese of British Columbia, may not have the exclusive use of the church building while the question of ownership is being decided". "Commenting on the decision, Bishop James Cowan noted that 'we are deemed to be the owners of the property', but declined further comment. In her decision, Justice Allan said legal ownership is 'clearly vested in the diocese'. Beneficial ownership -- whether the property is held in trust for the congregation, diocese or national church -- 'is indeed an issue for future determination', wrote the judge. Cheryl Chang, legal counsel for the Anglican Network in Canada, a breakaway group that includes St. Mary, said in an interview that legal title does not necessarily reflect who has beneficial ownership". "After Justice Allan's decision, the network released a statement saying that it 'will cause hardship to the congregation, as they will be forced to find alternative accommodations for Sunday services'."
