"In the late hours of January 14th, Yellowknife driver Neil Johnston
was traveling along a remote section of Highway 1 when he came across
a young couple whose vehicle had gone into the ditch. They were shaken
but uninjured. There was no cell coverage in the area, but Neil got a
message through to our Operations Centre and asked them to contact the
RCMP. He shoveled snow away from the exhaust and grill to ensure the
vehicle remained running and stayed with the couple until the police
arrived on scene.
We would like to recognize Neil for his act of kindness and
demonstrating what it means to be a professional driver."
