Bravery Nomination for young Canadian Heroes

Bravery Nomination for young Canadian Heroes

An honour to recognize local heroes today in our community with MPP Steve Clark. The bravery of Dylan Carbino, Marina Clark and Alexandra Dow who risked their lives to save two strangers and their dog from a burning boat is incredibly heroic and our community is a better one because of it.🙏

 

 

You can watch my statement, from December 4, 2020, given in Parliament honouring these young Canadians.
