I am Canadian...(at least today) and the Anglican Church of Canada has elected.
The Anglican Church of Canada is electing their new Primate today. Pray for the Church in Canada.
That election has now taken place, and The Rt. Rev. Fred Hiltz of Nova Scotia was elected this afternoon.
Fr. Jake has a good take on the person and the official announcement is here.
In particular he says, by way of a trusted associate, "Fred Hiltz would be deemed the most liberal choice and many will rally around him, in part because he is not from Ontario and because he will be seen to stand in the tradition of the last three Primates who have been progressive: Ted Scott, Michael Peers, Andrew Hutchison. That said, Hiltz would not be considered the most liberal diocesan bishop in Canada by any means. Michael Ingham, New Westminster; Ralph Spence, Niagara; Colin Johnson, Toronto; Bruce Stavert, Quebec, are all probably more liberal."
We might note that none of those - Ingham, Spense, Johnson or Stavert were in the running.
While wandering around on the internet to find a bit of something re Canada I ran across a Molson Beer add that was just fine...
So in salute to Canadian friends, the day, and the election, and in memory of two good years spent at the University of Alberta (1962-4), here it is. (I have no idea what Canadians think of the ad...)
