General Secretary of General Synod of the Anglican Church of Canada withholds documents from the Anglican Journal

The Anglican Journal has existed since 1875. Last year the Journal celebrated 140 years of covering the news for Canadian Anglicans. Unlike the Episcopal News Service, the Anglican Journal proudly maintains an editorial autonomy, in spite of being an official publication of the ACoC. In years past, the Anglican Journal has been given access to the documents provided online to the members of the Council of General Synod prior to it meetings. This month the Secretary of General Synod, Archdeacon Michael Thompson, took the decision not to provide the documents to the Journal.
