Nova Scotia, the Barho family lived in Elmsdale, a 30-minute drive north of Halifax, where they were embraced by the local community.

A 'warm embrace' for grieving parents at funeral of seven young fire victims - OrilliaMatters.Com

Saturday, March 02, 2019

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 residents there. They moved to the Halifax suburb of Spryfield to take advantage of language training and other immigrant services, and had planned to return to Elmsdale next month. The family was among 1,795 Syrian refugees who have come to Nova Scotia in recent years. The Trudeau government granted asylum to 40,000 Syrian refugees in 2015-16. A brutal civil war has raged across Syria since 2011, claiming more than 400,000 lives.

No applicants yet for public seats on Nova Scotia funeral board - Cape Breton Post

Wednesday, March 27, 2019

SYDNEY, N.S. - Anyone upset over what's happening in the funeral industry in Nova Scotia now has an opportunity to pull up a chair and do something about it. For the first time, the Nova Scotia Board of Registration of Embalmers and Funeral Directors is offering two board seats to public advocates not connected to the funeral industry, measures taken following a bizarre and emotional mix up at a Nova Scotia funeral home last year. Rodger Gregg "That way the public can get involved in enforcement actions when they need to be taken by the board as we'd have the consumer advocate perspective as well," said Rodger Gregg, registrar of cemetery and funeral services in Nova Scotia. However, Gregg said, his concern is that no one has applied for the positions and the positions start in June. "Right now, we haven't received any applicants for these positions," he said. "For us it's a great opportunity for there now to be consumer representation on the board to represent the consumer's interest." The board previously consisted of just the registrar and five othe...
