SKUGAID CAPTAIN HONOURED BY QUEEN
David is well known for his peaceful yet determined protest with the City of New West and Larco to keep his historical ship the SKUGAID moored in the Royal City near the Larco property and Fraser River Discovery Centre.
Both Larco and the City worked tirelessly through legal means to remove Cobbs from his moorings, eventually succeeding.
One evening, while moored at the FRDC, Cobb responded to sounds of distress. His quick actions resulted in him pulling a person floating uncontrollably down the river toward a likely death. Because the Skugaid was where it was – a man is alive – and the BC Living Society has seen fit to reward Cobb’s selfless and heroic action.
In hindsight, is it unfortunate that the citizens of New Westminster can not count David Cobb as a fellow citizen? Would these qualities; selfless character and an ability to make sound decisions not be a royal benefit to the Royal City?
Congrats David on your Queens Silver Medal Award.
