"The General Synod Pension Plan has received the member votes it needed to ask the Ontario government to grant it a three-year period to improve the plan's funding level and avoid pension reductions of 20 to 30 per cent. Judy Robinson, the director of the Anglican Church of Canada's Pension Office Corporation, thanked all members who sent in their voter cards. The pension office needed the approval of at least two-thirds of the plan members in order to ask the provincial government to consider the three-year relief period. By mid-September , 85 per cent of active members and 89 per cent of retired members of the plan had voted in favour. The plan has 2,356 non-retired active and inactive members, and 2,683 pensioners".
