Our first winner for 2014 was Hardeep Parmar, an employee of BC Ferries who works on the Brentwood Bay-Mill Bay route. The ballot nominating Hardeep came to us from a BC Ferries colleague, Elke Kite, who wrote:
I am nominating Hardeep on behalf of a BC Ferries customer who just called to compliment him for going out of his way to help her. The customer was travelling to her doctor’s appointment for her chemotherapy treatment. She had been quite ill with pneumonia, and fell asleep in her vehicle with the lights left on while waiting for the ferry. Her car battery ran low and she required a boost. Hardeep immediately looked after this and continued to check on her while she was onboard to make sure she was alright. The customer said he was deserving of “5 stars”.
