Mr. Speaker, I am pleased to rise today to pay tribute to the bravery of three heroes from my riding: Evan Green, Nick Lannigan and Ryan Atwin.
Concerned after spotting smoke coming from the back of a building, these three teenagers rescued a 60-year-old gentleman after seeing him lie helplessly on the floor through a window. Their heroism continued when they alerted sleeping tenants of the danger and assisted in the evacuation of the building.
These three young men were recently honoured as heroes and given life-saving awards at the St. John Ambulance's annual awards ceremony.
I invite my fellow members to join with me in thanking these fine young citizens for their courage and inspiring their community.
