Looking back on Jewish community’s impact on life in Cape Breton - Cape Breton Post

Wednesday, March 27, 2019

SYDNEY, N.S. - They came, they flourished, and they left – all in just over 100 years. And while there are still Jews on the island side of the Canso Causeway, the public face of Cape Breton's Jewish community is but a mere shadow of what it was in the 20th century. The main streets in the downtowns of the former industrial areas are now depleted of most of the Jewish-owned businesses that once dominated the retail landscape of yesteryear. Names such as Schwartz, Jacobson, Nathanson, Epstein, Yazer, Allen, Shore, Simon, Gold, Rosenblum, David, Ein, Chernin, Moraff, Spinner and Mendelson were once commonplace on storefronts and shops in the downtowns of Sydney, Whitney Pier, Glace Bay and New Waterford. But names familiar to older generations are now unknown to many young people. So, what happened to these once vibrant Jewish communities? A Matter of Survival To understand why Jewish immigrants came to Cape Breton, one needs o...

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 represe...

Service Nova Scotia investigating allegation Sydney funeral home operated without licence - Cape Breton Post

Wednesday, March 27, 2019

SYDNEY, N.S. - Service Nova Scotia is investigating allegations that S.W. Chant Funeral Home conducted a funeral without a licence this week. Sheldon Chant denies any wrongdoing. "A funeral home licence is required to provide funeral merchandise and services to the public," said Marla MacInnis, a spokesperson for Service Nova Scotia, in an email. "Chant's Funeral Home's licence is currently suspended." The allegation appeared to surprise Sheldon Chant, the owner of the funeral home. Sheldon Chant "An employee of Chant's went to a personal friend's uncle's funeral and someone reported that we were doing the funeral," he said in an email response. "Wow. You can find this out very easily by looking into who the funeral was for and who the remains (were) released to and I can guarantee it was not us." Chant said whoever has the remains is the funeral home in charge, Chant's Funeral Home did not provide any service as a funeral home...
