I am proud of Stratford Police Sergeant James Jardine. A couple of weeks ago on his way home down the 403, there was a car that went down into the ditch. Though he was off-duty, Sgt. Jardine turned around, pulled over, and helped the gentleman who was in distress before the OPP showed up to assist. To me, that shows to the community no matter on or off duty, Sergeant James Jardine always put everybody ahead of himself. For this, I feel he deserves a 2021 hero of the year award.
