Earlier this year we sponsored Liam Labelle to attend the Adventures in History sponsored by the Rotary Club of Cataraqui-Kingston. As Liam recounted for us, it was a fascinating look at the history of Kingston ranging from the home of Canada's first prime minister to the penitentiary and the evolution of the treatment of delinquent juveniles. The theme of this conference was criminal law with emphasis on youth justice and how youth have been treated under various legislation since Confederation. Liam was able to listen to various speakers, including the Honorable Peter Milliken who was the former speaker of the House of Commons. Mr. Milliken spoke to the delegates about the legislative process and the various phases of law making in Canada. Liam toured the Kingston Police Station, the Kingston Penitentiary and concluded this conference by speaking to a group at the Kingston City Hall Council Chambers. Liam thoroughly enjoyed this conference and suggests that it be somewhat longer as he felt constrained by time. Great program and super presentation.

The Rotaract members will have their boxes to receive shoes at Rotary's District Training Assembly this Saturday at the NavCentre, Cornwall.
