LMA looks for new H&R staff.
"We have worked out a budget that is manageable within existing funds," said Rick Fee, general secretary of the LMA. He stressed that no funding would be needed from Presbyterians Sharing, the national church's main mission and ministry fund. The full-time contract position, which can extend to a maximum of two years, will draw on funds originally set aside for a number of related purposes including aboriginal dispute resolution and work related to the Truth and Reconciliation Commission.
The new staffer is expected to begin in August. Ransom, who was hired on a one-year contract in September 2006, had her contract extended for four additional years and plans to return to her position with the government this September.
"It's a pleasure to work with her and we're really going to miss her," said Stephen Allen, associate secretary of Justice Ministries.
