At the jurisdictional church conventions in April, Map and June, 1974, Forums on Lutheran Unify were held. Tape recordings of these public discussions were made in several instances. Below is a resume of parts of one such public forum. It took place at the Ontario District Convention on June 8. Forum participants were the three Canadian church presidents — Dr. S. T. Jacobson (ELCC), Dr. O. A. Olson (LCA — Canada Section), and Rev. L. N. Scholl (LC-C); the two presidents of the jurisdictional units local to Ontario -- Rev. A. Stanfel (Ontario District - LC-MS) and Dr. Otto F. Reble (Eastern Canada Synod ~ LCA); and a prominent ELCC pastor. Rev. W. Riekert of Ottawa, Dr. T. Ristine, vice-president of the Ontario District moderated the forum. Rev. N. J. Threinen, executive secretary of the JCILR, introduced the speakers and provided back-up Information. Since some of the persons speaking from the floor are unidentified, only the forum speakers are named.
