This is a story about a police officer killed in the line of duty. Two of his friends wanted to nominate him for The Cross of Valour, to be presented by our Govenor General; however this nomination could not go ahead until such time as the guy who killed the police officer had gone thru the court system, so that he could have a fair trial.
By the time his trial ended and Chris' 2 friends nominated him for the Cross of Valour - our gov. general's office refused because more than 2 years had gone by since the act of valour.
