The fall term at King’s University in Halifax began on a sour note for students and faculty who worship at the college chapel. The Bishop of Nova Scotia sent a letter to the president of the university stating that the diocese could no longer fund a full-time chaplaincy.

Students, staff and faculty as well as the chaplain himself have all expressed grave concerns about the bishop’s letter.
