VICTORIA — A member of the Kamloops RCMP was among 56 men and women who were recognized at the annual Police Awards in Victoria last night. 

Cst. Steve Marcil was honoured by Lieutenant Governor Judith Guichon and Solicitor General Mike Morris for his actions in saving the life of Corporal J.R. Michaud, who was shot during a traffic stop two years ago in Batchelor Heights.

Marcil says, while the incident was unusual, it's all in a day's work for an RCMP member.

Early on December 3, 2014, Cst. Marcil returned fire on shooter Kenneth Knutson after Knutson shot Michaud.

Marcil then rushed to provide first aid to Michaud, and is credited with saving his life.
