May 10 Vancouver Delegates attending the B.C. conference of The United Church of Canada, held at St. Andrew's Wesley Church, voted by a margin of 500 to 50 against a move to refuse ordination to homosexuals. It was believed that if the conference opposed homosexuals becoming ministers, then church membership for gays would be illegal as admission to the church was seen as the basic form of ministry.
