The Town of Whitby is honouring a past leader. The arena complex at the Iroquois Park Sports Centre is being named the Des Newman Arena Complex, after the town’s former mayor. Newman championed the recreation facility in the early 70’s, during his time as mayor, and now the facility has more than two million visitors each year. Newman spoke with the CKDO morning show recently, and said he was extremely honoured. He says nothing is done in this life without the support of a lot of people.
