I hope a policy review is on the agenda.

Nearly $20,000 in bank deposits was left on top of an ATM by an employee of the Assiniboine Credit Union last Tuesday. Luckily for them that an honest bike courier, who could have pocketed this money, returned the bank deposits to the Credit Union. Giving him a "$50 gift" to Boston Pizza for returning $20,000 seems extremely meager.

Is the manager's name Scrooge by any chance?
