Christine Schulz - Nomination

I've never met Christina Schulz but in my eyes she deserves to be recognized as a hero. Early October 2nd of 2013 she noticed a driver proceeding down Laurier Avenue in Ottawa in a dangerous manner. She attempted to stop the driver but before she could do that he ran a red light and crashed into another vehicle at a high speed. The man in that other vehicle was my dad. Officer Schulz immediately got out of her car and stayed by my dad's side comforting him for the final last moments of his life. For her attempts at curbing impaired drivers and for her compassion for victims and their families, Christine Schulz deserves to be recognized with this hero award. - Crystal Hampton, Ottawa
