The Rev. Dr. Katherine Grieb has told numerous sources that she did not offer the characterizations attributed to her in a news feature of the Anglican Church of Canada. Specifically, she did not say that from the perspective of The Episcopal Church the present version of the Anglican Covenant is "that they could live with."
As observed earlier in the week in The Lead, TEC's perspective can only be articulated by the General Convention, which has said not a word about the final draft of the covenant. Executive Council hasn't spoken in any kind of conclusive, or, for that matter, even suggestive sort of way on the matter, either.
