Tuesday, January 24, 2017

Newfoundland's newly designated Highway of Heroes Tuesday to honour Maj. Scott Foote, whose remains were being transported to St. John's International Airport, a day after his funeral in Dildo, Trinity Bay. Foote, of New Harbour, N.L., will be interned at the Beechwood Cemetery in Ottawa, also known as the National Cemetery of Canada. Foote, 50, was found unconscious in a military gym in Jordan's capital city of Amman earlier this month. He was pronounced dead after attempts to revive him were unsuccessful. Retired soldier Tom Skelding, who personally knew 12 soldiers who died in Afghanistan, says remembering fallen soldiers is 'what you got to do.'

Regional appeal board deliberating Corner Brook city council's denial of Country Haven crematorium plans - The Telegram

Saturday, March 2, 2019

Coun. Bernd Staeben, who had initially voted in support of the request, had a change of heart. Parsons appealed the decision and a hearing was held by the West Newfoundland Regional Appeal Board in Deer Lake Thursday morning. The appeal board's mandate is not to determine the merit of Country Haven's application. Rather, it must determine if city council abided by the proper rules and regulations in considering its decision. Board chairperson Lloyd Walters asked if the city had provided a specific reason why the application had been rejected. Lori Lee Sharpe, the city's solicitor, noted that city staff must cite a specific reason if its recommendation to council is to refuse an application. In this case, staff's recommendation had been to approve it, but the final decision was still left to city council's discretion. Sharpe said each member of council voted according to their own consciences and the resulting decision did not legally require providing a justification of each council member's reasons for voting how they did. The board was also told each council member, before they cast their votes, had access to both feedback received from a public notice about the crematorium proposal advertised in The Western Star and the results of surveys sent to 150 households in the area immediately around the funeral home. There was also some discussion about whether the city correctly treated the crematorium as a discretionary use for the funeral home or if it should have been treated as an accessory use. Sharpe said, either way, the process would have resulted in city council voting according to their own consciences. Parsons told the board that a story published by The Western Star three days before council's second vote may have been a factor in swaying council's vote. In that story, a woman living near a crematorium in Stephenville, complained about the emissions coming from the facility. The owner of the Stephenville crematorium refuted what the woman was claiming. Likewise, Parsons contends the emissions from the controlled burning of a state-of-the-art crematorium is safer than a backyard barbecue. Parsons also told the board he was asked by the city to hold a public forum with his funeral home's neighbours just days before the vote took place. He said that was an impractical request, given such short notice and it would have had to be held on a weekend. Parsons does want to hold a public forum and will if he gets another chance to add the c...

2 N.L. funeral homes with suspended licences still offer prepaid services to new clients - CBC.ca

Saturday, March 2, 2019

Two Newfoundland funeral homes that had their licences for prepaid funerals suspended two years ago still appear to be accepting money from new clients for these services.An undercover CBC News investigation has found that Sunset Memorial Funeral Home in Grand Falls-Windsor said it would take money in trust for prepaid services, while Gordon Woolfrey Funeral Home in Lewisporte said it would accept money in trust or through insurance.A Sunset Memorial employee explained how it works over the phone."What happens is obviously a person would come in and select the funeral of their choice, the services and things like that," the employee said."And what happens is then, basically you have a couple of different options in regards with the payments, that sort of thing. What happens is the funeral is paid in full, that price is obviously locked in and money goes into a trust account, and obviously there would be no further payments then."Employees for Botwood, Sunset Memorial and Gordon Woolfrey fu...

Regional appeal board reverses Deer Lake town council's decision to approve crematorium - The Western Star

Saturday, March 2, 2019

Two of those opponents, Stephen Brent and Kayla Critch, appealed council's decision. The appeal was heard in Deer Lake last week. In its decision released Tuesday, the West Newfoundland Regional Appeal Board reversed the council's decision to issue a permit. After hearing evidence at the hearing, the board found that a crematorium is not listed as a discretionary use within the town centre zone in which the funeral home is located and the town didn't exercise its authority appropriately in issuing the permit. A funeral home is listed as a permitted use in the zone, but a crematorium is not mentioned specifically. The town must now reconsider the application from Parsons Funeral Home in accordance with its current municipal plan, regulations and any other applicable legislation. "It's too bad," Parsons said Wednesday. "There are people around town who do support this, but they just don't want to come out and say it publicly because of the way some of the people against it have been getting on." The Town of Deer Lake recently submitted a new draft municipal plan to the provincial government for approval. In it, there are specific mentions that crematoriums will not be permitted anywhere in the town centre or in the commercial general zones. The plan does allow for crematoriums to be discretionary uses in either the industrial general zone or the commercial-light industrial zone. The plan also stipulates that a crematorium will not be located closer than a distance of 100 metres from the boundary of any other zone, except the environmental protection, commercial-light industrial, airport, utility, highway corridor, and rural zones. It also states that applications for crematoriums must be made separately from applications for new funeral homes. Parsons said it's not really feasible for his business to purchase land in the town's industrial park and hopes to still find a way to expand his Main Street location to include the crematorium. He noted it was interesting the appeal board did not fault the town's consideration of the environmental and esthetic concerns brought forth by the crematorium's opponents. He...
