Joel Simard, a young father from Alma, plans to donate $ 500 to a local food bank.

“It shocks me. A single parent earning $ 40,000 and a 20-year-old man living with his parents could not have imagined getting the same amount. They wanted to give money before the election, but it was a bit of a garage,” Mr Simard lamented.
