Subject: British Columbia Anti-Cryonics Law Update
Date: Fri, 21 Jul 2006 12:01:47 US/Eastern

      I have spoken to Tom Acquiline about the British Columbia
Business Practices & Consumer Protection Authority (BPCPA)
Interment & Funeral Services Advisory Group meeting that was
held on Wednesday, July 19th. He assured me that when the subject
of cryonics arose, discussion focused on the issue of informing 
funeral directors that they could assist in preparation and shipment
in a cryonics case without being in violation of BC law. 

   Mr. Acquiline informed me that there would be information 
placed on the BPCPA website concerning this matter (he 
could not give me a URL as yet) and that information would
also be sent to BC funeral directors directly. He believes that
the cryonics community will be satisfied with this result.  We
shall see.
