Anglican diocese vows to fight church repairs

From Canada-

The Anglican Diocese of Eastern Newfoundland and Labrador says it will continue to fight any attempt to force it to reattach the steeple and make other repairs to its old church in St. Philip's.

An appeal board dismissed the last attempt by the Town of Portugal Cove-St. Philip's to force the diocese to repair the church because the town did not follow proper procedures.

"They [the town] did not do it right," said Brad Wicks, a chancellor and lawyer with the Anglican diocese.

"They can't compel a private property owner to do things unless they follow the rules. They didn't follow those rules."
