'Doesn't seem right': Funeral home overcharges grieving families for ... - CBC.ca

Thursday, January 19, 2017

You just want to finalize everything. "I'm an only child and this was my mom." Enough gas to heat a home Both families complained to the business, Alternatives Funeral and Cremation Services Airdrie, just outside Calgary. MacLeod was told her mother's cremation used enough natural gas to create five tonnes of carbon dioxide, or the amount of natural gas used to heat an average home for almost a year, leading to the $100 charge. Terry MacLeod says she was charged $100 carbon tax when cremating her mother at an Airdrie, Alta., funeral home. (Mike Symington/CBC) "You just go to a business and expect it to be fair," MacLeod said. The province says that charge was out of line, claiming the carbon tax per cremation should equal, on average, less than $1 and not more than $4. A cremation generally costs between from $1,500 and $2,700. The $100 fee charged for cremation would almost pay the carbon tax for a year of home heating. (CBC) At first, funeral home owner Diann Rowat told Go Public that the price was so high because "carbon tax is not just on cremation. It's on every fuel product you use, so it's also on the gas on our funeral vehicles." 'We feel foolish' A day later, Rowat recontacted the CBC, saying she asked her accountants to double-check — and they found they were off by a decimal point. The funeral home apologized and offered refunds to families, saying it made a mistake calculating the new tax meant to reduce greenhouse gas emissions. In fact, the funeral home should have charged $10.09, Rowat said. "We feel foolish and extremely apologetic that it took a complaint to you guys to make me ask to re-do the math on this," Rowat told Go Public. "It was totally our fault." All families charged the $100 fee will be reimbursed and receive an apology phone call, she said. Alberta crit...

Alberta criticizes funeral home Alberta Trade and Economic Development Minister Deron Bilous said the funeral home was "not being accurate and honest" by charging grieving families the needlessly high fee."It's disappointing that the company is choosing to increase their costs — which is a business decision should they so choose — but to blame the carbon levy is more than a little mis...
