Talk about an attractive nuisance. This week a currency truck spilled Canadian “loonies and toonies” all over a highway. The accident then caused a candy truck to crash and spill candy on top of the money. I can just picture two Canadian guys saying “Give it a second, eh, there has got to be a Moosehead Beer truck coming along.”
I am about to head to Canada and I clearly missed this opportunity. They are using an industrial magnet to pick up the coins. The candy company will presumably clean up the candy by busing in thousands of elementary school students.
Notably, Const. Marc Depatie of the South Porcupine OPP said “There have been very few people that have come by … to perhaps pilfer or take advantage of the situation.” Probably, because most people are assuming that this has to be a trick.
I have only been able to find one scene similar to this one:
