Wednesday, March 27, 2019

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 04, 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!

Deer Lake council follows through on appealed decision and formally rejects crematorium application - The Western Star

Wednesday, March 27, 2019

The opponents protested outside the town hall during several subsequent council meetings. The decision of council was appealed by residents Kayla Critch and Stephen Brent. In February, the West Newfoundland Regional Appeal Board conducted a hearing of the appeal and eventually decided to reverse council's decision. That set the stage for council to revisit the application, which finally made its way to the council agenda this week. The vote to reject the application was unanimous. Coun. Dave Parsons, who was absent from the public meeting, would not have been permitted to vote if he had been there due to his conflict of interest. Coun. Myra Spence, whose husband's company could have been considered for work on the crematorium project, was deemed to not be in a conflict of interest and was allowed to vote Monday. The appeal board had based its decision on the fact a crematorium is not listed as a permitted or a discretionary use within the Town Centre zone in the town's municipal plan. Mayor Dean Ball said there are likely several undertakings within Town Centre that the municipality has actually approved in the past, but which are not specifically mentioned in the town's plan. He gave the example of the cannabis outlet that recently opened in the area. It was not listed as a specific discretionary use when it was approved since the sale of cannabis has only recently become legal. "This is the first time this has happened to us that I'm aware of," said Ball. "There are lots of things not listed as itemized as discretionary use that we've done in the past. "I guess with this being a bigger issue with a higher profile and closer to people's hearts, the appeal board decided the decision should be reversed." Ball said the original decision was based on information provided by staff and this discretionary use issue was not foreseen. He said Parsons could always apply again, but the mayor doesn't believe that will happen. Parsons could not be reached for comment as of deadline Tuesday to see if he still plans to pursue the crematorium. He has said in the past that, despite the rising demand for a crematorium service in the Deer Lake area, it would not be feasible for his business to build one somewhere other than at the funeral home's location on Main Street. A new municipal plan the town is awaiting approval by the provincial government does specifica...
