Doug Warnock by all acounts was a reluctant hero or a modest hero,& very instrumental in saving a drowning woman & her daughter & her daughters friend ,from the frigid waters of the Saint Lawrence River in Verdun . It's the 5th anniversary of his passing.Here's the story of Doug's unselfish efforts to help save someone from drowning.You should be able to click on the article to enlarge it. or Zoom In on it. The French article first appeared in the Messenger in January '95(and I think Guy ,posted a copy of it for us on the old VC)........Doug Was honoured also in Parliment. I am sure we posted this story in an English version many years ago on this Verdun Connections site, but I cannot seem to locate the story (yet) I did come across this one from the Messanger on the old hard drive. Hope it's legible enough.
....also here's is a tribute from today's Gazette .
