Nova Scotia funeral home to soon start selling alcohol during visitations - Nova News NowFriday, January 6, 2017
METRO HALIFAX - A funeral home in Dartmouth will soon become the first in the province to give those grieving the loss of a loved one the chance to do so with a drink.
Atlantic Funeral Homes’ Main Street location was granted a liquor licence in April, and has plans to start serving booze at visitations in July.
“Everyone always talks about the old Irish wakes,” general manager Mark Hooftman said June 15
“When you’re celebrating a life, the celebration could be many things to different people, and for some people it could mean alcohol.”
Hooftman says the company was getting requests from many of its customers for alcohol at visitations. That meant applying for a special occasion licence every time someone wanted to toast a dead relative with, for example, a bottle of the dearly departed’s favourite whiskey.
There is no liquor licence for funeral homes, per sé, but Hooftman says he applied for a licence with the province’s Liquor Control Board anyway, and they made what he calls a “groundbreaking” exception.

Details emerging about Gerald Cotten, the young founder of QuadrigaCX - Burnaby NowSaturday, March 2, 2019
HALIFAX - A clearer picture is emerging of the young man at the centre of the mysterious demise of one of Canada's largest cryptocurrency exchanges.
Gerald Cotten, a Nova Scotia resident originally from Ontario, was 30 years old when he died suddenly while travelling in India on Dec. 9 - leaving his virtual company, QuadrigaCX, without access to $180 million in Bitcoins and other digital assets.

His widow, Jennifer Robertson, has said in court documents that Cotten was the only person with access to his laptop, which is thought to contain the digital keys to the so-called cold wallets containing the missing cryptocurrency.
The circumstances surrounding Cotten's death - and the way he conducted his business from the couple's home in Fall River, N.S. - has led to a flurry of speculation and allegations in internet chat rooms, with some former QuadrigaCX users coming forward to raise questions about the $250 million in cash and cryptocurrency owed to 115,000 of them.
Cotten signed his will on Nov. 27, 2018 - less than two weeks before he died at a private hospital i...
A 'warm embrace' for grieving parents at funeral of seven young fire victims - OrilliaMatters.ComSaturday, March 2, 2019
It was a common theme throughout the funeral - a desire for the tragedy to lead to love and unity.
"Life is short and temporary. Live it the best way possible," Hamza said.
Nova Scotia deputy premier Karen Casey told Barho "we will not abandon you. We will not leave you alone."
"Please accept our love," Casey said. "Please accept our warm embrace."
Halifax MP Andy Fillmore told Barho the community would be there for her in the hard times to come. But he acknowledged it's family that brings the greatest comfort, and said the federal government is trying to bring her overseas relatives to Canada quickly.
"We are working as hard as we can to get your family here as quickly as possible so they can be by your side," Fillmore said.
Mourners, Muslim and non-Muslim alike, said they came because they had been deeply affected by the tragedy, and wanted to show their support for Barho as she faced unimaginable grief.
"She doesn't know me, I don't know her, but I know I'm here. And she's our family - their whole family is our family. I want to be here for all of them," Cindy Samson said in an interview.
Adnan Aboushahla said it was a "shock for anyone - not only for Muslim people, but for Christians and other religions," to witness such a tragedy.
"We want to do whatever we can - either give support, money, feelings, this grief," said Aboushahla.
Following the funeral service, the combined honour guards of Halifax Regional Fire and Emergency and Halifax Regional Police carried each coffin back outside, one at a time, to the waiting hearses. There was to be a burial at a Muslim cemetery in Hammonds Plains following the funeral.
Peter Andrews, Halifax fire deputy chief of operations, said it was a "huge honour to be invited to participate in this family's darkest day."
He said none of the firefighters that responded to the horrific blaze were part of the funeral's honour guard.
"We put on a brave face today," he said. "We'll grieve in our own way in the weeks ahead."
The children's father, Ebraheim Barho, remained in hospital Friday recovering from extensive burns. He was in critical, but stable condition.
The cause of the blaze in the Halifax suburb of Spryfield early Tuesday remains unclear.
Mourner Tareq Hadhad, a Syrian refugee who founded Peace by Chocolate in Nova Scotia, said it is hard for the parents to handle all the pain by themselves.
"I would say it's the most devastating period that I have ever lived, even though we lost family members back home in Syria. The loss of seven kids at once really has had a very devastating impact on the entire community here," he said.
Mourner Mouna Manna praised the outpouring of support, and said the mother's burden is unimaginable.
"I don't even know where to begin to imagine how this would be, to lose not one or two but seven of them all at once ... it's a huge, huge devastation," she said.
The scale of the tragedy for the young family that arrived in Nova Scotia in the fall of 2017 as refugees has struck a chord with Canadians.
A GoFundMe campaign had raised about $585,000 by Saturday evening.
The Barho family lived in Elmsdale, a 30-minute drive north of Halifax, when they first arrived in Nova Scotia, and were embraced by reside...
