Cemetery out, 'water burial' in - The Sudbury StarWednesday, August 02, 2017
Crown land, private property or body of water.Lesperance, who has worked in the funeral industry for the past 36 years, operating primarily out of the Windsor and Essex County area, said water burials have been done privately by families for years.“I'm a charter service specifically dedicated to the funeral industry,” he said.“I'm the first of its kind.”Lesperance said having a funeral home take care of the arrangements ensures “it's done respectfully, professionally, abiding by all the rules and regulations.”McKinlay said there is no requirement to go through a funeral home to scatter cremated remains, but if someone where to offer a charter service for this purpose, they would need to be licensed as a funeral home.The reason why a funeral service licence exists, he said, “is those who do make a profit from funeral services ought to be licensed and regulated.”There is a biodegradable water scattering urn available that Lesperance said provides an “eco-friendly way of providing this service.”He said water is saturated in the urn, causing it to sink to the bottom in about 15 to 20 minutes from the time it’s launched from the boat.A prayer service or some words of remembrance can be spoken during that time to provide a closing aspect to the ceremony, Lesperance said.A certificate of scattering of ashes is also provided that includes the exact GPS co-ordinates of where a loved one's ashes were scattered so families and friends can revisit the area or have another person's ashes placed in the same location in the future, he said.McKinlay said providing the service is just another aspect of the evolution taking place in the funeral industry, which is seeing more people moving away from traditional funeral services.Earlier this year, the funeral home became one of the few in Ontario to obtain a permanent liquor licence for its Chatham location.“We're trying to do our best to lead the pack,” McKinlay said. “It's been very satisfying number of months.” Let's block ads!

Clark Davey, 1928-2019: 'The true journalist of journalists' - Ottawa CitizenWednesday, March 27, 2019
He was heartbroken after failing his medical, but an English teacher told him that people would pay him to write. So he enrolled in the first journalism degree course taught at University of Western Ontario, graduating in 1948 and joining the newsroom of the Chatham Daily News.There, he worked under Richard "Dic" Doyle, but moved to Kirkland Lake when the Thomson newspaper chain made him editor-in-chief of the Northern Daily News. His time there was brief, however, as his girlfriend, Joyce Gordon, issued him an ultimatum: Northern Ontario or me. He chose her: they married in September 1952.In the meantime, he joined the newsroom of the Globe and Mail, where his mentor Doyle had been working for a year.As a reporter with the Globe, Davey covered national and international affairs, including the Suez Canal crisis, the St. Lawrence Seaway project and the cancellation of the Avro Arrow program. During the 1957 federal election campaign, he recognized that Tory leader John Diefenbaker was gaining momentum and might actually win, and convinced his editors to allow him to stay with the Chief's campaign for 40 days.

When Doyle became editor of the Globe in 1963, he chose Davey as his managing editor, and, according to Mills, the two raised the broadsheet's reputation from that of a local paper to a national one. Davey was managing editor for 15 years before joining the Vancouver Sun in 1978. He was publisher there until 1983, when he took over at the Gazette. He was publisher of the Citizen from 1989 to 1993. He was also president and chair of The Canadian Press, and co-founder and president of the Michener Awards Foundation that oversees the country's most prestigious journalism prize."He was the true journalist of journalists," says Kim Kierans, journalism professor at University of King's College in Halifax and Michener Foundation board member. "He told me when I last saw him in November, ‘If we're not providing the encouragement for journalism organizations and journalists within them to do the journalism that matters, then we're in trouble as a democracy.'"He was also a lovely man, smart and sparkling … with incredible enthusiasm for the business and its future."According to Mills, Davey, who in 2002 led a protest on the steps of the Ottawa Citizen after Mills was fired for running an editorial critical of then-prime minister Jean Chrétien, was known as tough and gruff, "but deep down he was a really kind and thoughtful person, and a very good friend who was always fair to people. But if you didn't know him, he could be intimidating."And although he called the shots on the job, it was Joyce who ruled the home roost. According to son Ric, his father only stopped the presses twice - once while at the Globe, when Joyce called him to report that she and Ric thought they had just seen a UFO."That was the kind of pull she had over him," says Ric.Clark Davey is survived by his wife, Joyce; brother Kenneth George; children Ric (Rita Celli), Kevin (Margaret) and Clark Jr. (...
