Grave changes: More Albertans opt for green burials - CBC.ca

Saturday, March 02, 2019

Natural burial areas have already constructed in Fort McMurray and Cold Lake and are in the design phase for Cold Lake, Lethbridge and Slave Lake.In Edmonton, natural burial areas are planned for two existing cemeteries.At Northern Lights Cemetery, bodies would be laid to rest without the use of chemicals, cement liners or headstones, and only funeral shrouds or biodegradable caskets made of untreated wood or wicker will be allowed. In South Haven, cremated remains would be placed in eco-friendly satchels with plants as markers.Over time, those natural burial areas would resemble a woodland park or a natural public garden, said Teena Changarathil, Edmonton's cemetery supervisor. "As it evolves and the area grows, it will look like a walking path garden," she said.Concept planning for both projects has been completed. If the budget is approved during city council deliberations this year, construction could begin in 2020 or 2021. There is a huge demand from the public, Changarathil said."There is more awareness of it. We're getting a lot of questions. How can I get put on the wait list? How soon will it be rolled out?"People are loo...

Newfoundland father of man slain in Edmonton pleads for help to get body home - Edmonton Sun

Wednesday, July 05, 2017

Coates was born in Ontario, raised in Brown’s Arm and moved west as a young man, initially working in construction in Slave Lake. It was there he got the call that his mother had died of a heart attack. His father last saw him at the funeral. “That really affected him,” Coates said. “His mother was everything to him, and when she died, a part of him died. He’s going to be buried in Brown’s Arm right next to his mother.” Officers on Friday found Brent Coates fatally wounded in the alley after another man flagged down a passing police vehicle. An ambulance was summoned but Coates died of a stab wound at the scene. Police are calling for public tips to help solve the case.The slaying was Edmonton’s 25th homicide of 2017, though the police force is not including two other deaths in its official count. The death was the city’s sixth homicide this month. The elder Coates said his son trained as a welder and worked a variety of jobs, recently for temporary work agencies, and would drift out of contact when times were tough. He is trying to focus on memories of his son as a Toronto Maple Leafs fan who grew up playing hockey, and a hard worker who bought a dozen Boston cream doughnuts with his first paycheque.The father and son last spoke on the phone around a year ago, and he fears his son may have been mixed up in drugs and alcohol. “I want people to know that my son existed. And I want people to know someone took his life,” he said. jwakefield@postmedia.com Let's block ads! (Why?)...

Wednesday, March 27, 2019

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 ...
