Re: Man stabbed de­fend­ing bus pas­sen­ger de­scribes har­row­ing scene (Nov. 5)

I ad­mire the courage of the two young men, Matthew Short­ing and Jonathan Meikle, who came to a fel­low per­son’s as­sis­tance.

These two men, through their par­tic­i­pa­tion with the Bear Clan pa­trol, have demon­strated a sin­cere de­sire to bet­ter their com­mu­nity. Fur­ther, their ac­tions to pre­vent a racially mo­ti­vated as­sault demon­strated that they have courage and care for their fel­low ci­ti­zens, which is the foun­da­tion for an ex­cel­lent po­lice of­fi­cer. I think Win­nipeg Po­lice Ser­vices should be of­fer­ing these in­di­vid­u­als po­si­tions as po­lice of­fi­cers.
