Letter: Make aquamation available in B.C.

This is the most environmentally friendly end of life process

Make aquamation available in B.C.

I’d like to add my voice to the earlier ones of Gail Mitchell and Sandy McPherson about the benefits of alkaline hydrolysis or aquamation as it is sometimes referred to. This is the most environmentally friendly end of life process and sadly, it is not yet available in B.C. It is in several other Canadian provinces as well as about half of the U.S. states and several countries around the world (e.g., U.K., South Africa, NSW, and others). Here’s a website for more information: aquamationbc.ca where you can also sign a petition to support the efforts to lobby the government to make this available to B.C. residents.
