The Primate and the Pooch

I enjoyed as Communications Officer for the Diocese of New Westminster being with Archbishop Fred Hiltz, here touring a subsidized housing complex that the Church has been involved in. Jack Card is a resident and storekeeper in "The Wellspring." His dog is named Ruby. Fred, head of the Anglican Church of Canada, came for a four day official visit, and one thing he did was get a taste of the social services the diocese is involved in. The Archbishop loves dogs--he just lost a Labrador that had been in the family for 15 years, and really missed him. "The Wellspring" is one of relatively few places where people can keep their pets.
