Another multimillionaire is living in the Lower Mainland—and her fortune didn't come from real estate.
Delta resident Christina Sevenoaks found an even easier way to get rich: she bought a 6/49 lottery ticket.
And when her numbers came up on March 28, she realized that she was suddenly rich.
How rich? Try $7-million rich.
"I could barely make out the words when I called my husband to share the news," Sevenoaks said in a B.C. Lottery Corporation news release. "It was like an out-of-body experience."
Yet she still plans on keeping her job.
One of the upsides is that she can buy a new house and a new truck.
"My son has always wanted a dog but we could never have one living in an apartment," she revealed.
Sevenoaks bought her ticket at Thrifty Foods in Tsawwassen.
