Mak­ing Man­i­toba a joy

Winnipeg Free Press - Section G - - THE SOCIAL PAGE -

I would like to thank the gentleman who found my overnight bag on the street and came to my house to re­turn it per­son­ally.

I was in a rush to get to work and had put the bag on the trunk of my car. Then I drove off. About five min­utes later, I re­al­ized what I had done and drove back to try to find it.

I had just reached my house when the Good Sa­mar­i­tan called me to say he had found it. We had a mix-up about retriev­ing the bag, but even­tu­ally he came back to our house. He would not take a cash gift and sim­ply said he hoped that some­one would do the same for him some­day.

He drove off be­fore I could get his name. It is peo­ple like this who make liv­ing in Man­i­toba such a joy. Thank you.
