The Canadian General Synod voted against the proposal to make all Anglican primates members of the Anglican Consultative Council.
Synod rejects membership of primates on ACC
Winnipeg, June 25, 2007 — General Synod has refused to ratify proposed changes to the membership of the Anglican Consultative Council that would see all primates of the Communion automatically become members.
In moving rejection, Bishop Sue Moxley of Nova Scotia and Prince Edward Island and a member of the ACC, said the changes would add a third more members to the council, resulting in increased costs.
She also pointed out that the changes need the approval of two thirds of the provinces of the Communion.
