OTTAWA, October 31. /TASS/. A police officer who protected Canadian parliamentarians from a gunman's attack last week may never have to pay for beer for the rest of his life, local media reported on Friday.
After shooting a corporal at the National War Memorial in Ottawa last week, gunman Michael Zehaf-Bibeau made his way to the parliament where he was shot dead by security officers.
Guard Alain Gervais used his body to block the door to the caucus room during the shooting, ordering MPs to get down.
Glenn Thibeault, a member of the New Democratic Party of Canada, said he found a good way to thank Gervais for his heroism.
"We just need to constantly make sure that he never has to pay for a beer at any pub in the country for the rest of his life," Thibeault said.
The proposal was met with applause. Several hundred bottles of beer were later delivered to Gervais' home.
