Yukon diocese unable to elect new bishop

Never mind consents, some dioceses can't even make the election happen ! Archbishop Buckle is pictured with his wife.

Members of the diocese of the Yukon, meeting in Whitehorse on May 31, failed to elect a new bishop, and Archbishop Terrence Buckle said he would postpone his retirement and remain in office. Archbishop Buckle, who is 67, had said earlier this year that he would retire at the end of 2008. Canadian Anglican bishops generally retire before or at the age of 70.
