Going green with funerals - Sherwood Park NewsFriday, June 02, 2017
So, we formed a society, we have completed and submitted the documentation for charitable registration, and I think that we are making a move towards a non-profit community cemetery.”Sherwood Park is in the minority of Alberta municipalities that does not have a community cemetery — meaning that most available burial sites are operated by churches, private owners, or the City of Edmonton. Roughly only 20 per cent of Albertan municipalities are without a community-run cemetery.This lack of a community cemetery, which would offer green burials, is something Hoffmann hopes to change.“It’s a big vision,” Hoffmann said, explaining that BOSS hopes to create a cemetery that is operated by the non-profit and is primarily volunteer driven. She added, at this point, the organization is hoping to add board positions, accumulate funding and develop a plan, including concept drawings and an operating model.“And we need land,” she said. “We need three to five-acres.”Finding that land would also mean presenting the need for a community cemetery to council.“I think that council is very aware (of the need), and they are interested in learning more, too,” Hoffmann said.For more information about BOSS, please visit firstname.lastname@example.org/SarahComberLet's block ads!

Convoy evokes Canadian pride in North Bay - Vermilion StandardWednesday, March 27, 2019
Monday afternoon.Caron, of North Bay, was waiting in the parking lot at Motion Canada on Gormanville Road for almost 100 vehicles, from small cars to big rigs, to pull in on their journey from Alberta to Parliament Hill with a message for federal politicians.
"This is about more than pipelines," Caron says. "This is about government. This is about all the provinces having different issues. It's about getting back the political process."The United We Roll Convoy for Canada, a caravan of transports, work vehicles and personal automobiles, left Red Deer, Alta., last Thursday bound for Ottawa and a protest on Parliament Hill Tuesday."The media and the government have divided the provinces," Caron says. "We want to fight for our freedoms and our rights. We want fair government.""We are watching Justin Trudeau slowly strip away every right we had," Sarah Zaldinger, of Timmins, said as about two dozen supporters waited for the convoy to arrive, sharing updates on when the parade would roll into town."He is stripping the future of my children and their children and their children," Zaldinger said. "They are being set up for failure. Their rights, their future, will all be destroyed if we don't stand up now."Although she was not part of the convoy to North Bay, Zaldinger was going to join it Tuesday morning for the rally in Ottawa as part of her own objective of "direct democracy."And direct democracy is possible, she said.Zaldinger pointed to a recent Amber Alert sent to cellphone users across the province ...
