Nanaimo Man Decorated for Bravery

Kevan Shaw to Receive
Decoration for Bravery at Rideau Hall

Her Excellency the Right Honourable Michaƫlle Jean, Governor General of Canada, announced today the awarding of 26 Decorations for Bravery. The recipients will be invited to receive their decorations at a ceremony to be held at Rideau Hall
at a later date.

Among the 26 to be honored is Kevan Shaw of Nanaimo for the following act:

On November 2, 2006, Kevan Shaw assisted RCMP officers in the apprehension of a disturbed individual, in Nanaimo, British Columbia. Observing the man acting erratically, Mr. Shaw immediately called the police. Two RCMP officers arrived and quickly became involved in a violent physical confrontation with the man. With complete disregard for his own safety, Mr. Shaw joined in the struggle and, noticing that the out-of-control man was clutching an undetected knife, he grabbed his hand. Mr. Shaw then helped the officers subdue the man until back-up arrived.
