Home for the Holidays: a wish come true
Many of you sent in some incredible stories and it wasn't an easy choice. But in the end, Montreal's Sandi Cook won CJAD 800 and Air Canada's Home for the Holidays contest.
The great news was shared to Sandi's parents in Nova Scotia on the Andrew Carter Morning Show.
"Hi mom," Sandi exclaimed, "you're coming home!"
Those words almost hard to believe for Shirley and John of Newwaterford, Nova Scotia. It hasn't been an easy year for the couple. A fire destroyed their home in August 2012, taking with it 50 years of family memories.
Since then, and while they wait for their home to be rebuilt, they have been living in a hotel room, and were prepared to spend Christmas alone.
"This is going to be great," said an emotional Shirley Cook.
She and her husband will be arriving in Montreal next week. On Thursday, there will be a special home for the holidays live broadcast from Gibby's at 7pm with Andrew Carter and the entire morning show team.
