Protestors want Deer Lake funeral home owner to consider another location for crematorium - The Western Star

Thursday, April 12, 2018

I don’t want it,” said Russell, one of about 50 people who gathered around the town hall on Reid’s Lane to protest the decision by the Deer Lake council to allow Parson’s Funeral Home to install a crematorium at its Main Street Location.It was the third time a protest has taken place before a public council meeting and Russell’s second time attending.The nearly 81-year-old has always been a supporter of things in her town — good and bad.“This is more important than anything that’s ever happened in Deer Lake,” she said.“Because I really don’t think it should be there.”Russell said there are other locations that would be better suited for a crematorium than on Main Street, which is near a school and homes.Others in the group, including Phyllis Morris, echoed that sentiment.“Please relocate,” was her message to funeral home owner Dave Parsons, who is a member of council.Morris said it was a complete surprise to her that the crematorium was approved when she had no idea it was happening.And so she started to take a closer look at it out of concern for the neighbourhood and the possibility of a fire at the site.In her research, she said she found studies that cited the risk of stillbirth and having babies being born with anencephalus was higher among woman who lived near a crematorium.Some of the research is dated, but Morris said “until...

RCMP mourns one of its own - Western Star

Tuesday, December 20, 2016

The RCMP is in mourning following the sudden death of its district commander in Labrador. Insp. Tony Perry was found dead Friday morning in Happy-Valley-Goose Bay. Perry, who is originally from Deer Lake, joined the RCMP in 1988 and served in Nova Scotia until July 2015, when he was transferred to Newfoundland and Labrador. Most recently, Perry worked as a negotiator between police, aboriginal leaders and protesters at the Muskrat Falls hydroelectric project site. Foul play is not suspected. “We extend our deepest sympathies to Inspector Perry’s family, friends and colleagues,” the RCMP said in a statement, adding that the force has offered its support to the Perry family and its employees through its Occupational Health and Safety Services Offices, peer-to-peer coordinators, and Employee Assistance Services. The Town of Happy Valley-Goose Bay also issued a statement on Perry’s death, calling him “a well-respected and dedicated member of our local Happy Valley-Goose Bay RCMP Detachment. “He was a beloved community member with incredible volunteerism spirit and he will be missed by all who had the pleasure of knowing and working with him,” town officials said. “As head of the Labrador Division, Insp. Perry’s in...

John Nuraney, BC's first elected Muslim MLA dies; Clark pays tribute - Alaska Highway News

Tuesday, December 20, 2016

Liberal government of former premier Gordon Campbell. Nuraney was re-elected in 2005, but lost his seat in 2009 to New Democrat Kathy Corrigan in the Burnaby-Deer Lake riding. The 79-year-old immigrated to Canada in 1974 after the government in Zaire — now the Republic of Congo — nationalized businesses and expelled foreigners. Premier Christy Clark says in a statement that Nuraney was a mentor and a friend, and the Ismaili community has lost one of its most respected leaders. "No matter the interaction, John Nuraney dealt with people in a way that made them feel important and honoured," said Clark. "He was a man who epitomized traits we don't often hear used anymore: class, grace, and principled." Nuraney worked in the insurance industry in Kenya, London and Zurich before moving to Zaire in the late 1960s where he recorded, produced and distributed Zairian music. He immigrated to Canada in 1974, working in the insurance, real estate and restaurant businesses, owning several A&W franchises in Metro Vancouver. Nuraney spoke six languages: English, French, Swahili, Lingala, Hindi and Gujarati. He and his wife had three children. Let's block ads! (Why?)...

RCMP's lead officer on Muskrat Falls deceased - The Independent News

Wednesday, December 14, 2016

Muskrat Falls hydroelectric project.” A 2009 article in Nova Scotia newspaper The Casket reported that Perry was a native of Deer Lake, and that he took over the RCMP’s Antigonish detachment on June 28 of that year. The veteran officer reportedly landed his first posting at the Antigonish detachment, and along with his wife and daughters considered the N.S. community “home” after living there from 1988 until 2001, and again from 2006 until 2015. Perry reportedly first returned to Antigonish to serve in the role of head of operational services. On Friday federal Minister of Public Safety and Emergency Preparedness Ralph Goodale issued a statement offering his “deepest condolences to the family and friends of Inspector Tony Perry, who died suddenly this morning. Our thoughts and prayers are with them during this very difficult time. “Inspector Perry dutifully carried out the RCMP’s role to preserve the peace, protect life and property, and enforce the law. He will be deeply missed,” Goodale said. During the recent protests at Muskrat Falls, which culminated in an occupation of the project’s main workers’ camp by approximately 50 land protectors and others opposed to the dam, Perry communicated with Indigenous Elders inside the camp. On Oct. 24 The Independent recorded a conversation between Perry and Elder and former Innu leader Bart Jack regarding concerns about land protectors going out onto the Muskrat Falls site. The exchange demonstrated a mutual respect between the land protectors and the police, Jack told The Independent Friday evening after learning of Perry’s passing. “It’s horrible news, and I almost wasn’t able to believe it,” he said. “Even though we disagreed, we both were civil and he was respectful of us and we were respectful of him. “He had to do his job, and we had to do our job,” Jack added, referring to the land protectors’ efforts to defend their traditional food and way of life, and Perry’s mandate to remove them from the Nalcor site. “It certainly is a very sad day for me because I remember speaking with him for the...

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!
