  • Director Gerben Heslinga comments Les Lye

    Good morning;

    Just thought I would pass this on to all the fans of YCDTOTV and especially to the fans of Les Lye.
    Les Lye, passed away yesterday after a lengthy stay at the Queensway-Carleton Hospital in Ottawa, Ontario. He was 84.
    Les was gentle, kind, a man with no ego, with a wonderful sense of humour. He was always a pleasure to work with in all those years of YCDTOTV.
    His daughter wrote "he remained a local legacy in theatre, radio and television, particularly in the thirty-odd years he spent on various sets in the CJOH studios. He changed so many people's lives with the countless volunteer hours he worked for local charities".
    He will be missed.
