This time of year it always seems extra nice to hear stories of goodwill.  Instead of just quitting his job as a heavy equipment operator at a mine, a B.C. man who won $4.9 million in the latest Lotto 6/49 draw says he plans to now dedicate his time to volunteering instead.

Douglas Lowes, 50, of Cranbrook, won half of the lottery jackpot last weekend, with a ticket he purchased on his way home from doing some volunteer work with the Salvation Army Christmas Kettles. He says volunteering has always been something he enjoyed and did in between his regular schedule.
