Huskins, "Who Owns the Church Buildings? Writing the History of Canadian Anglican Schisms"

In the Journal of Canadian Church Historical Society, Archdeacon Harry Huskins addresses some religious and social conflicts of Canadian Anglican Churches in the context of canon law and real property litigation:

The article discusses parish controversies regarding the ownership of church buildings after schisms in Canada's Anglican Church, focusing on the 1874-1875 Cridge Controversy in Victoria, British Columbia, between Bishop George Hills and cathedral dean Edward Cridge. Topics include Anglican canon law precedents from the Canons of 1603, the history of church disputes before the Canadian Supreme Court, and the 2010 court case "Bentley v. Anglican Synod of the Diocese of New Westminster."
