Minister ‘insulting’

Published April 1, 2010

Jason Kenney was “insulting” in the way he refused to allow 11 priests from the Anglican Church of the Province of Myanmar to visit the diocese of British Columbia last fall, Bishop James Cowan told delegates to the 93rd synod Mar. 6 to 7. The B.C. diocese has had a companion diocese link with Anglicans in Myanmar for more than 10 years. Fifteen members of the Myanmar Church were invited, but only four were granted visas. “They were rudely treated, and denied an interpreter,” said Bishop Cowan.
