: Subject: SCI.CRYONICS British Columbia elections & BC's anti-cryonics law

:     British Columbia, Canada is the only Province or State that has a 
: law which is specifically anti-cryonics. Section 57 of the BC Cemetery
: and Funeral Services Act reads: "No person shall offer for sale or 
: sell any arrangement for the preservation or storage of human remains
: based on cryonics, irradiation or any other means of preservation or
: storage, by whatever name called, that is offered or sold on the 
: expectation of the resuscitation of human remains at a future time."

That's interesting, as it prohibits most Christian Churches from selling 
burial plots.  Any Church which holds the 'Resurection of the Flesh' 
doctorine and sold burial plots would be in violation of this law.  Looks 
like a good method of overturning it.
