Citation taken from the website of
the Governor General of Canada:
On December 8, 1984, at about 11 p.m., off-duty RCMP
Cst. Laurier Cadieux was enjoying a meal at The Keg
restaurant in Langley, British Columbia, when he heard two
shotgun blasts. He immediately investigated only to encounter a
woman brandishing a revolver whom he then overpowered and
disarmed. He heard another shot, turned and saw a man holding
a sawed-off shotgun who fled up some stairs; Cst Cadieux
pursued and confronted him with the weapon taken from the
woman. He discovered the weapon was defective, but decided
to bluff: he identified himself as a policeman, telling the man to
lay down his weapon. The man complied but, realizing the bluff,
lunged forward. A struggle ensued and, with the help of
restaurant staff and patrons, the man was overpowered.
Meanwhile, the woman was rescued by a third accomplice and
both fled the premises. Police arrived shortly thereafter and
took the remaining man into custody. The others, along with a
fourth accomplice, were later arrested and charged.
