New youth facility named for Justice Lester

The province's new youth detention building on Highway 61 now has a name. It's called the Justice Ronald B. Lester Youth Centre. His widow Susan Lester says it's a most appropriate honour since he worked with youth all the time as a criminal lawyer and judge. He was also very active with Harbour Youth Services, the organization that takes care of disadvantaged young people. Lester says naming the centre after her late husband is significant for the community. Pictured: MPP Bill Mauro and Councillor Joe Virdiramo help Susan Lester and family cut the ribbon.
