"Re: 'New Westminster removes four clergy' (October  Anglican Journal). We think it important to point out that the diocese of New Westminster and its bishop have removed no clergy in this diocese during the current dispute. They left the Anglican Church of Canada on their own. Contrary to the headline, the clergy in question voluntarily relinquished their licences to Bishop Michael Ingham in writing on May 11  and joined the Argentine-based Anglican province of the Southern Cone. However they have refused to vacate their former parish churches. That makes it impossible for Bishop Ingham to send new clergy to the parishes to resume the mission and ministry of the Anglican Church of Canada".
