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 funeral homes, which are all owned by Terry Green, said they either accept money through an insurance agent, in trust, or a combination of the two, respectively.

Bishop Marcel Damphousse
"There were four or five bishops there on Wednesday and a half a dozen bishops here today," he said. "Also, there is a message from Bishop (Marcel) Damphousse, the former bishop before I came. He sends his condolences. The highways are snow covered in Northern Ontario and he can't get down here."Bishop Derouchie, who succeeded Bishop LaRocque, is here as well and he is going to be one of the priests saying the Eucharistic prayers. There will be three interventions by Bishop Derouchie and Bishop O'Brien, the Archbishop of Kingston and the new bishop-elect, Bishop Keith Rocher, is here. Those are the bishops who are here as well as all the priests."RelatedAlexandria-Cornwall Emeritus Bishop LaRocque diesPrendergast said he knew Bishop LaRocque personally."When I was in Toronto he was president of the Bishops' Assembly of Ontario and he actually tried to recruit me for a position, but I said I don't think so, I'm more suited to the classroom," said Prendergast. "He accepted that. He was very much a supporter of mine. He wanted me to take the position with the Bishops' Assembly but I thought I would rather teach, so a few years later I became a bishop and he said ‘Welcome to the group.'"I don't think he was entirely happy that the diocese was going to become a part of Ottawa in the next couple of years, but I called him and left him a message on his voicemail when the new bishop was appointed.

No applicants yet for public seats on Nova Scotia funeral board - Cape Breton PostWednesday, 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.
"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...
