Former youth advocate, ombud says moving psych. facility from Campbellton was right move


New Brunswick's former Child and Youth Advocate and Ombud says moving a youth psychiatric facility from Campbellton to Moncton was the right decision.

Bernard Richard says he was shocked when he heard the the province's former Liberal government announced the facility would be built in Campbellton back in 2015.

Richard says putting the facility in Campbellton was the opposite of a concept for a revamped psychiatric health system for youth stemming from earlier consultations.
