Thursday, April 12, 2018

The funeral home is owned by Coun. David Parsons, who had applied to council for the expansion of his business prior to the municipal election in September.Related stories:Corner Brook council turns down application for crematorium on Country RoadStephenville funeral home says crematorium smoke is not from human remainsParsons was exempted from any discussion or voting on the issue by council after declaring he would be in a conflict of interest to do so.There was one dissenting vote among the six town councillors who decided on the crematorium issue. Coun. Mike Goosney said he felt he never had enough information about emissions to give his support.The approval comes on the heels of the City of Corner Brook recently declining an application for a crematorium in the city because of concerns over emissions in the proposed location, which included nearby residences. There was also some recent concern raised about emissions from the crematorium located in Stephenville by residents living near that facility.Parsons Funeral Home is located near residences, schools and other businesses, but Mayor Dean Ball said the town did its due diligence before voting to approve the permit.“For us to turn it down we would have to have had a good reason to do so and we did not have one,” said Ball.The mayor sa...

'Why didn't he have a helmet on?' Cab driver shaken by deadly crash at Humber Valley Resort - CBC.ca

Tuesday, April 4, 2017

Pollard died from his injuries Sunday at noon at Western Memorial Regional hospital in Corner Brook.'No helmet to be seen, no gloves, no suit, nothing. They were in jeans and a sweat shirt.'- Joe Vokey, first to arrive at accident scenePolice said a 26-year-old man who was a passenger on the snowmobile, and one person from the taxi, a Birchy Cab van, were also sent to hospital with injuries.Vokey said the collision happened at the beginning of the bridge when the van was attempting to enter the resort. When he approached the scene, he heard the van driver say 'Where the f--- did he [the snowmobiler] come from?' No helmetsVokey said the van was pushed up against the bridge railing, so close to the rail, four unharmed passengers had to climb out on the opposite side. What surprised him most was how the pair on the snowmobile were dressed."No helmet to be seen, no gloves, no suit, nothing. They were in jeans and a sweat shirt. That's what blew me out of the water, especially on a big machine like that. It was a brand new machine. Why didn't he have helmet on? If he did have one on it would have been a different outcome," Vokey said. RCMP are still investigating the crash and do not know if alcohol was a factor. (CBC news )Once he knew help was on the way, he helped move the snowmobile to the side of the bridge and headed back to Corner Brook. "I was shaken. When I got home and situated, I called RCMP in here. They came at 5 o'clock and I gave a statement. I was that tired and shook up … I couldn't do nothing. There was nothing I could do," Vokey said. Friends and family of Justyn Pollard told CBC News he was on the west coast for a snowboarding trip to Marble Mountain.RCMP told CBC the investigation into what happened is still in its early stages, but snowmobiling is not allowed on the bridge to Humber Valley Resort.It's not clear if alcohol played a role in the collision. Let's block ads!

George Yates

Wednesday, February 8, 2017

Land Surveyor and was commissioned in 1951. While working for CN Rail, he was sent to Newfoundland to survey the railway. It was there he met 18 year-old Catherine Cossitt at a dance in Corner Brook while she was home from university for the summer. When Catherine is asked what attracted her to George, she is always quick to reply, “he was gorgeous and he was the only one there taller than me”. George enjoyed a long and distinguished career as an Ontario Land Surveyor. He was a partner with his brother Don at Yates & Yates Ontario Land Surveyors and PhotoMap Air Surveys. George, while modest, accomplished much; trustee and chair of two school boards in the 1960’s, chair of the Unionville Home Society Foundation and appointment to the Canadian Board of Examiners for Professional Surveyors (CBEPS). When George retired in 1997, he started his second career providing back up emergency child care for his grandchildren, a task he handled with massive amounts of both love and patience. George was a born and bred Torontonian. That, combined with his long career as an OLS meant that he knew every street from Lake Ontario to Lake Simcoe. He couldn’t go anywhere without running into someone he went to school with, did a survey for, or was related to. He was a long-time member of the Albany Club and the Fitness Institute. He was actively involved in politics and was a dedicated Progressive Conservative (of the Red Tory variety) which led to many lively discussions with his some of his more left-leaning children and grandchildren. George was a devoted Catholic and a long-time parishioner of The Church of the Good Shepherd in Thornhill. George loved Ray Charles and Oscar Peterson, beautiful clothes, red wine, Starbucks coffee, corned beef from the Centre Street Deli, extra old cheddar cheese, the Globe and Mail, the Toronto Blue Jays (and much to his chagrin) the Toronto Maple Leafs. He was a natural athlete, and continued his daily runs well into his late 70’s. He taught all of his kids, at a very young age, to both swim and play poker (which worked out pretty well) and tried desperately to teach those same kids math (which didn’t work out so well). He was a stone-skipper extraordinaire. You could put him anywhere in the world and he could tell you where due North was. George was the definition of a decent man, generous, fair, honest and courteous. He was both gracious and graceful and always, always looked like a million bucks. Visitation will be held at The Church of the Good Shepherd in Thornhill on Saturday,...

Deer Lake town council approves crematorium for Main Street funeral home - The Western Star

Thursday, April 12, 2018

Ball.The mayor said the town researched the issue and the particular unit Parsons Funeral Home is proposing to use.Newfoundland and Labrador does not have emission standards that are specific to crematoriums, but Ball said every indication was that the emissions from the crematorium unit would easily meet all the existing standards in the province.The funeral home is already in a zone designated as commercial, so no rezoning was required to permit the crematorium.Ball said council understands the sensitive nature of the topic, but believes they made the right decision.“Today’s technology has all the checks and balances needed and we don’t think there is any reason for anyone to be alarmed,” he said.Let's block ads!
