A friend of mine and her pal found a Ziploc bag full of money on the sidewalk on a busy street corner on Halloween 2011. She turned it in to the police station.
I told a number of people her story. Their responses were generally puzzled and sometimes even indignant that she hadn't pocketed the dough.
Yesterday she told me that the time limit had expired for the person who lost it to claim it.
She and her friend will be splitting the $5000.00 cheque that the Service is mailing to her 50/50.
Guess it's not so crazy to do the right thing.
