Steven Large

On March 10, 2020, Steven Large with the OPP was a quick thinking officer who used an available canoe sliding it across the ice to rescue a fisherman who had fallen through into the St. Lawrence River off Landon Bay while ice fishing. Officer Large wasn't worried about his safety, rather, just saving this individual and doing his duty. Exactly 1 year to the day, this rescued individual was happy to tell Officer Large he was back out fishing "all thanks to him." This would be the 2nd time in his career that Officer Large subjected himself to freezing water conditions in order to save a life. This is the most humble human being I know that would respond to this nomination as "I was just in the right place at the right time" and not think of himself as a hero.
