Now is time to write letters about body removal contract

I encourage all who have a concern about the body removal contract change and the fact we have no coroner hired to write a letter

Editor, The Times:

A group of people met on Thursday Nov. 14, and wrote letters to the regional coroner, Larry Marzinzik (103 – 1420 St. Paul Street, Kelowna, BC. V1Y 2E6), expressing our concerns about the addition of the North Thompson to the Kamloops contract area for body removal service. We copied our letters to the following people:

• Lisa Lapointe, Chief Coroner

Metrotower II Suite 800 – 4720 Kingsway

Burnaby, B.C. V5H 4N2

• Dr. Terry Lake

Kamloops-North Thompson Office

618 Tranquille Road

Kamloops, BC

V2B 3H6

• British Columbia Funeral Association

Suite 211

2187 Oak Bay Ave.

Victoria, BC. V8R 1G1

• District of Clearwater

132 Clearwater Station Road

Clearwater BC   V0E 1N0

I encourage all who have a concern about the body removal contract change and the fact we have no coroner hired for this area to write a letter expressing their concern. I also offer a template for those who need help with wording.

I feel strongly we need to support our local funeral service, which offers dignified and respectful service to those who find themselves facing this trying end of life issue.

Sandra Holmes

 

Clearwater, B.C.
