GS 2004 Article 7 – Late Submissions
The regulations of Synod state:
All material for Synod should be received by the convening church (in twenty-two copies) no later than six weeks prior to the convocation date of General Synod. Material received after this date shall ordinarily not be added to the agenda unless Synod is satisfied that the reasons given for later arrival are reasonable (Appendix 2, Acts of Synod Abbotsford 1995, p. 103).
Synod decided the following concerning late submissions:
- Church at Surrey: Letters re: CRCA and CCCA reports. Decided: Admitted. Ground: Mail arrived late due to abnormal postal delays.
- Church at Aldergrove: Letter re: Supplementary Report of CRCA. Decided: Admitted. Ground: The supplementary report of the committee was submitted late to the churches and, therefore, the church at Aldergrove could not submit its letter on time.
- Church at Lincoln: Letters re: CPEU, CRCA and CCCA reports. Decided: Admitted. Ground: Mail arrived late due to abnormal postal delays.
- Church at Houston: Letters re: CRCA report. Decided: Not admitted. Ground: Submitted too late.
