LongRanger Posted December 13, 2003 Report Share Posted December 13, 2003 By’s, listen to yourselves. Dwayne didn’t ask for this award, someone else thought he was deserving. Taking a pat on the back and shredding it to bits. Should be ashamed of yourselves. Put yourself in the circumstances of that day and you probably would have done the same. It's easy to sit back after and say the likes of... Perhaps he's sheepish because he knows he could have been violated The Canadian military and the Coast Guard are probable the only RESCUE pilots in the country..for the rest of us, do the math All of us have or will at some point in our career push our limits. Who are any of us to criticize Dwayne for his actions that day? If he operated within the vis limits of the CAR's and weighed the options carefully, which I suspect he did, then he cannot be criticized. Someone wrote it up as operating in a major snowstorm. That was someone’s interpretation that may differ from anyone else. From what I’ve seen since moving my residence to the mainland, things come to a screeching halt with 5 cm of snow!! :shock: Some consider that a snowstorm!! As for who should do SAR work, part of the mandate for the RCMP is the protection of the public. That involves SAR work; it is in our provincial contracts. Congratulations Dwayne. :up: Keep up the good work and play safe. If these posts continue I’ll recommend you for another for having to endure these shots!!
