One Canadian Anglican diocese may declare
bankruptcy and a second is facing "grave" financial
difficulties as lawsuits over Native residential schools
progress through the courts.
The Diocese of Cariboo is considering declaring
bankruptcy after a judge recently found it negligent in the
sexual abuse of a boy at a Lytton, B.C., residential
school nearly 30 years ago. Floyd Mowatt sued the
diocese, the national church and the federal government
for damages as a result.
Dillon of the B.C.
found all three
parties jointly liable
