The BC Lottery Corporation celebrated the “astronomical odds” of two recent wins in Coquitlam with a party at the Shoppers Drug Mart and 7-Eleven locations at David Avenue and Coast Meridian Road.  In June, a $1-million Lotto Max ticket was purchased at 7-Eleven by Dennis  and Janice Howlett and, just over a week later, Ian Hirsch picked up a whopping $12.8-million Lotto 6/49 ticket at Shoppers across the street. The odds of winning a Lotto 6/49 jackpot are 1 in 14 million and for the Lotto Max is 1 in 28 million, making the two winners in such close proximity a rare event. BCLC celebrated with free cake — and free tickets to Friday’s Lotto Max draw. 



The Austin Heights Business Improvement Association has a new leader. Lisa Landry is the new executive director, replacing Erin Davidson who has retired. Landry is the former editor and general manager of snapd Tri-Cities and has a public relations background. She is currently a Tri-Cities Chamber of Commerce board director and member of the Coquitlam Foundation’s marketing and communications committee. Davidson leaves after co-founding the BIA 10 years ago, during which time she started numerous anti-graffiti and beautification programs, as well as the annual Daisy Day Festival. The Austin Heights business community was recently in the news with the successful launch of Coquitlam Munch.
