Hey there, time traveller!

My teenage son came home from school on April 8 and realized he couldn’t find his wallet.
In the wallet was his bus pass, driver’s license and student cards. I had him search his room, empty out his backpack and retrace his steps to the bus stop but no wallet.
He was very upset and thought he wouldn’t see his wallet again. I told him he probably dropped the wallet on the bus and that there are still good people out there and maybe turn in the wallet.
I phoned 311 and reported the missing wallet. The operator said that it maybe a few days before I hear back from Winnipeg Transit.
The next morning, Winnipeg Transit phoned me to say that my son’s wallet was there and I could pick it up. I was able to pick up his wallet that afternoon.
Everything was still in his wallet, even the bus pass.
Thank you to the kind person who picked up the wallet and turned it over to transit. And also thank you to Winnipeg Transit for their quick response.
This proved to my son that there are kind and honest people out there.
