Archbishop Fred Hiltz, primate of the Anglican Church of Canada, says he hopes human trafficking will be in the spotlight when primates from across the Anglican Communion meet in Canterbury, England, October 2-6.

“It is right that the Anglican Consultative Council should challenge the provinces of the Anglican Communion to tackle this issue, and it is right that here in the Primates’ Meeting we should begin substantial attention to it,” Hiltz said. “My own hope and prayer is that together we will rise up and be strong and bold to defy and defeat this crime against humanity.”

  1. Really? The Anglican Church of Canada is closing Parishes all across the country. With membership and average Sunday attendance in free fall the situation is now at a point that virtually no-one listens to Hiltz anymore.

    Human trafficking and slavery are an evil in this world. No argument there. But the point I am making is this. Until Hiltz gets his own house in order and starts to rebuild this Church he will be ineffective and not make a bit of difference.

    1. It is called the art of distraction . It is like telling someone they need to put a new roof on a house that is leaking ,when the foundation is crumbling all around them.
