Notes
"The Vancouver-based diocese of New Westminster, invoking a provision in its bylaws, announced on Aug. 29 [2008] the removal of clergy who have left the Anglican Church of Canada over theological differences over same-sex blessings but who continue to use diocesan parishes". "It identified the clergy involved as Trevor Walters, Michael Stewart, and Don Gardner of St. Matthew's, Abbotsford, and Simon Chin of St. Matthias and St. Luke in Vancouver. On May 11 [2008], 'each of them declared they had voluntarily left the ordained ministry of the Anglican Church of Canada. They claimed to have come under jurisdiction of a bishop reporting to the Anglican Church of the Southern Cone, which is based in six South American countries', the statement said. 'Such foreign jurisdiction is not recognized by the Anglican Church of Canada'." "Anglican Network in Canada Chancellor Cheryl Chang insisted that 'whether the diocese of New Westminster has the right to unilaterally replace these duly elected trustees and move to seize control of the parishes' assets is in dispute'."

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'."
