Woman waiting for pizza wins $2 million
Anyone who tells you that pizza is bad for you is wrong. Just ask Anita Snyder.
The woman from Surrey, B.C. decided to kill some time while waiting more than 20-minutes for her order of pizza. She walked to a nearby drug store and was told about a special deal that could make her rich.
"The woman [at the London Drugs at Morgan Crossing] said there was a new $30 Weekly Pack for all the draws, so I thought I'd try it," Snyder said in a statement issued by the B.C. Lottery Corporation.
The gamble paid off, big time.
She later scanned her ticket for the June 26 BC/49 drawing and all six of her numbers matched the draw.
"The only reason I scanned the ticket was because I was changing my purse before I left for lunch," she said. "I ran into my husband's room and asked him if he could see the $2 million too. I think I screamed."
Snyder, who's originally from Montreal, said she even called up the BCLC because it "didn't feel real." But it is and she's now $2 million richer.
Along with a trip back to her hometown, Snyder said she and her husband plan to invest some of the money and buy lots of champagne.
The leader of the NDP is visiting Quebec and he feels that his party is the only true progressive option in Canada.
