At its quarterly communication meeting on June 15th the Grand Lodge of Pennsylvania unanimously decided to suspend relations with the GLNF. The text of the e-mail I received from their Grand Secretary is as follows :
Fraternal greetings Brother Allan:
The Grand Lodge of Pennsylvania voted unanimously to suspend relations with the GLNF at the June Quarterly Communication.
Official correspondence will be forthcoming shortly.
Thank you for your inquiry

In the United States and Canada things are looking blacker by the minute for Ephesse, the self-styled guru who dubbed himself the spiritual leader of 43000 Brethren and soon after pledged their allegiance to Nicolas Sarkozy, the then French President.

And the fiasco at last Saturday’s AGM where Ephesse was soundly rejected by almost two thirds of the Lodge delegates and SGC members can only put more pressure on other North American Grand Lodges to decide to isolate the GLNF.
