Heroic Big Brother Honoured by Village (Sept. 13, 2021)

Award presentation
Pictured with Salisbury Mayor Rob Campbell is Ashton Wallace. On September 13th, prior to the regular meeting of municipal council that evening, he was presented with a Village of Salisbury Good Samaritan Award. It reads:
To a True Good Samaritan, One Who Gives to Those in Need and Displays Kindness in a Variety of Situations.
Ashton Wallace
On August 5th, 2021, 14 year old Ashton was babysitting his siblings when he noticed his 11 month old sister turning blue. Ashton immediately reacted by checking her mouth, and administering backblows and chest thrusts, known as the “Heimlich Maneuver.” His actions successfully expelled a candy wrapper and her colour returned to normal, with her crying. He then called Mom! Ashton’s immediate actions saved his sister’s life.

A Message from Mayor and Council

The Village of Salisbury passes along our deepest sympathies to those touched by the recent, and tragic, discoveries at residential school sites throughout Canada.
It is out of deep respect for our First Nations that the Village has chosen to postpone all virtual Canada Day celebrations originally planned for July 1st.
While there are so many reasons to celebrate Canada, this year marks an important opportunity to reflect and educate ourselves on Canada's history.
When the time is right, we look forward to the opportunity when we can join together as a community and enjoy the beauty we are blessed to have in our area.
As a tribute to the young lives lost in these residential schools, the Village of Salisbury Municipal Building will be illuminated in orange from June 30th to July 4th.
