Notes
"Archbishop Fred Hiltz, primate of the Anglican Church of Canada, has said that it is 'deeply regrettable' that implementation of the Indian Residential Schools Truth and Reconciliation Commission (TRC) has been delayed, noting the implications it has for former students who are now frail and elderly and might not have a chance to share their experiences. There has been no word from the federal government on how the TRC's work, stalled by the sudden resignation on Oct. 20 [2008] of its chair, Justice Harry LaForme, is going to commence. Last November [2008] it appointed former Supreme Court Justice Frank Iacobucci to help parties to the residential schools agreement to move forward".

Notes
"Gladys Cook, who helped many native people as a counsellor and touched the lives of many more people throughout Canada by courageously being among the first to speak publicly about the abuse she and other native people suffered as children in Indian Residential Schools, died on May 9 [2009] at the age of 79 in Portage la Prairie, Man." Ms. Cook, a Dakota Sioux, attended Elkhorn Residential School from the ages of four to sixteen. Ms. Cook was the subject of an award-winning documentary "Topahdewin: The Gladys Cook Story" produced by Anglican Video senior produced Lisa Barry. Ms. Barry "praised Ms Cook as 'one of the bravest people I have ever met,' and as a great mentor and role model for women".

Primate Fred Hiltz mentioned the video dubbed the "Christmas Food Court Flash Mob" in which a woman in a crowded food court stood up and started to sing "The Hallelujah Chorus" and was then joined by others singing "King of Kings" in his annual New Year's Day address in Christ Church Cathedral, Ottawa, Ont. "In outlining priorities for the church this year [2011], Archbishop Fred Hiltz then turned his attention to enlivened worship, biblical literacy, renewed commitment to indigenous ministries and strong leadership in environmental advocacy" (p. 2). He reiterated the church's support for the Truth and Reconciliation Commission, and pledged to participate in all the regional gatherings over the next four years. Two of the gatherings -- which are intended to hear, record and preserve the stories of Indian Residential Schools survivors -- will take place in Nunavut and in Nova Scotia this year. Archbishop Hiltz noted that in 2011, Anglicans and Lutherans will celebrate the 10th anniversary of their full communion" (p. 2).

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'."
