My mother was a Grandview survivor (at 14 years old). My mother volunteered at Guelph Police Services years ago. She helped young offenders through the courts, so they would receive the best legal representation in court.
I think she did this because when I was a (premature) 1 year old, a police officer saved my life. This was 1957. He came from Guelph to the farm, in Allenford, in his cruiser and brought me back to St. Joseph’s hospital and – I had pneumonia.
They saved my life.
I want to thank the police. They are the best people we have – especially the new young police officer. I commend you. Brave, loyal, and true. I salute you, I respect you.
