“Ongoing vandalism was costing us thousands of dollars in damage and negatively impacting our business image. Our customers and trades were disheartened. Restorative Justice (RJ) became involved after a successful investigation by Greater Sudbury Police Service and a meeting was held with myself, one of our supervisors, the seven youth and their parents. It was agreed each youth would work fifty hours of supervised construction over the summer and be a positive ambassador of the construction industry.
It is our belief that RJ is on the right track and that this program will yield positive results for individuals, families and community.”
