Good fortune flowing: Alberta flood victim wins show home in lottery


CALGARY — A man who was forced out of his home by flooding in southern Alberta last year has won a show home worth almost $1 million.

High River resident William Rader was out of his house for almost two months when flood waters swamped most of the town south of Calgary last June.

Rader bought a ticket for the STARS air ambulance fundraising lottery and was one of four grand prize winners.

He says finding out he won a house is surreal and it will take some time to sink in.

The new house — worth $945,000 — is a bit of a drive from High River.

It’s located in the central Alberta city of Red Deer.
