A funeral director in Dartmouth, N.S., has recently established his funeral home in an industrial park strip mall and is now beating competitors by offering services at low cost.

Other funeral homes in the province are upset that the government went against its own regulations to issue a license to Donald K. Walker Funeral Directors Ltd. The government’s regulation forbids funeral homes from being attached only to a residence, monument display room or flower shop and nothing more.

Alan MacLeod, president of the Funeral Service Association of Nova Scotia said in a letter written in October to Service Nova Scotia Minister Geoff MacLellan, that the decision is a bureaucratic one that will shake the very foundation of the funeral profession.

According to the Nova Scotia government, it received the application from Donald K. Walker and carried out a pre-licensing inspection of his operation. The government further stated that it issued Walker a traditional license because the province is reviewing the funeral homes governing regulations. It also pointed out that after the review, the license status will be revisited depending on the review result.

In a discussion paper issued by the provincial government, the rules dealing with what other businesses can be attached to a funeral home could be removed. According to Donald Walker, times have changed and he is simply giving the public what it earnestly wants.

Walker’s storefront is situated at the end of a Burnside Industrial Park strip mall. The strip mall houses a printing company and is located adjacent to a cleaning business that restores buildings after water damages, fires, and suicides.
