Flying Bishops, Canada Style

Apparently, Canada is about to allow flying Bishops to avoid the breaking up of the Anglican Communion. Read more here.

Personally, I don't understand the concept of flying bishops. This defeats the whole purpose of episcopacy. Is this really viable? Any comments?

This would seem to be a contradiction of any belief in the episcopal office as a symbol of unity. Or at least, giving up the idea. Perhaps at best it could be a temporary measure until someone repents in terms of the issue at hand. Whatever that might be.

I tend to agree...I mean what sort of meaning ministry can a bishop who is not even from the area really do? I mean, what is the point? Especially if you are flying this poor fool in from Armpitistan or somewhere.
