Special 100 Huntley Street broadcast honouring David’s life and work to air January 18th on YES TV

Crossroads and YES TV celebrate the life of the Honourable David C. Onley, former Lieutenant Governor of Ontario, and former Crossroads and YES TV Board Member, who passed away on Saturday, January 14, 2023, at the age of 72.

The Honourable David C. Onley was a beloved board member for Crossroads and YES TV, having served from 2018-2021, and was a familiar guest on 100 Huntley Street. Crossroads recognizes David as a champion for accessibility for all Canadians, especially the disabled, challenging people to see the ability within. His advocacy included employment for people with disabilities, literacy learning for Indigenous children living in remote communities, and answering the core needs of people through Christian broadcast television.  

“The primary focus of David and his life was to do everything he could to bring hope to everyone around him because of his faith in Jesus Christ. I found that I never left a conversation with David without learning something, being inspired to make a difference in someone’s life, and feeling appreciated in some way. He was not only a hope-bringer but inspired others to be hope-bringers as well.”

Kevin Shepherd, CEO Of Crossroads And YES TV

“David served on the Boards of Directors of Crossroads Christian Communications Inc. and YES TV admirably and with great distinction. The Boards benefitted tremendously from his insights, gleaned from his years of outstanding experience in public service, always offering sage advice and wise counsel. While we mourn his passing from this life into the next, we are certainly comforted by the fact that he’s now rejoicing in the presence of his Lord and Saviour.”

Stevan Novoselac, Chairman Of The Board

Crossroads is broadcasting a special 100 Huntley Street program to honour David’s life and work on YES TV at 9 AM/PM Wednesday, January 18, 2023.
