NEW GLASGOW, N.S. — An anonymous benefactor who secretly placed a $100 bill and an unabashed message of positivity in a Nova Scotia park has delighted and intrigued the town's residents.

The bill was taped to a New Glasgow, N.S., gazebo in a Ziploc bag with a note encouraging the finder to spend the money on something that brings them happiness.

"Always know that there is good in the world and joy to be found," the note read. "I hope you know, or will learn, that you are priceless and worth more than any paper or plastic."

The message was found by town employee Doug Miller while setting up for a funding announcement over the weekend, and the positive story has travelled fast.

Court ruling reveals grim details of Lionel Desmond case

Court ruling reveals grim details of Lionel Desmond case HALIFAX — A court fight over life insurance has revealed for the first time disturbing details about how former Canadian soldier Lionel Desmond fatally shot his mother, wife and daughter before taking his own life in the family's home in rural Nova Scotia in early 2017. In a decision released today, a Nova Scotia Supreme Court judge says the proceeds from Desmond's life insurance policy should be awarded to his late mother's estate because evidence collected at the crime scene in Upper Big Tracadie, N.S., suggests the former infantryman died before his mother did.

A Nova Scotia community has been warmed by an anonymous gesture from a stranger who placed $ 100 bill and a message of positivity in a town park. Sean Fraser, MP for Central Nova , shared the story on his Facebook page noting he was with Miller after he discovered the money, applauding the

Doug Miller from New Glasgow, Nova Scotia , was used to seeing all sorts of things at the park. But the town employee had never imagined finding a handwritten note like this one while walking around the park.

Miller said people have come up to him on the street to talk about the mystery note and congratulate him on the lucky find that he at first thought might have been a prank.

"It's a little on the surreal side ... it's like something out of Hollywood," Miller said by phone on Monday.

The town employee and first responder said he's still considering what to do with the money but he hopes to pay it forward to someone else.

For Miller, the thought, effort and intention behind the big-hearted gesture were the most impactful parts of his discovery, and the thoughtful conversations with other residents that have followed.

"It's the intention that I'm really trying to absorb," he said. "Talking to people about it and the message behind it, I think it's fabulous."

Miller said he was touched by the kind message along with the sum that could make a difference in someone's life who may be struggling to put food on the table or pay bills.

Geralyn MacDonald, the town's director of community development, arrived at Carmichael Park shortly after Miller found the money and shared the heartwarming story on Facebook.

MacDonald said the random act of kindness has been the talk of the town, with nearly 1,000 comments and hundreds of shares commenting on the great community.

"We've got a lot of great people here and somebody just proved it on Saturday, that somebody would do something so amazing and so awesome," MacDonald said.

"I think they set out to make a positive impact on one person's life but they actually did for the whole community."

Sean Fraser, MP for Central Nova, shared the story on his Facebook page, noting he was with Miller after he discovered the money and applauding the "terrific gesture, and a terrific guy!"

As the community celebrates the generous act, the identity of the person behind the message is still a mystery. Miller said some people have even tried to analyze the handwriting for a clue to the author's identity.

Given how far the story has spread in the close-knit community, MacDonald said she doubts the person will come forward, making their actions even more touching.

"Whoever did this, did this and doesn't want the recognition," she said. "I'm sure whoever did this knows by now the impact this has made, and how much we would like to thank that person."

Former N.S. Mountie sentenced to decade in prison for theft, cocaine trafficking.
HALIFAX — A former Nova Scotia Mountie has been sentenced to 10 years in a minimum security prison for stealing 10 kilograms of cocaine from an exhibit locker and arranging sales that earned him $100,000 in cash. Craig Robert Burnett — former commander of an RCMP National Port Enforcement Team — stole the drug from the force's Nova Scotia headquarters about eight years ago, and replaced it with another substance. Before he sentenced Burnett, Nova Scotia Supreme Court Justice James Chipman said the former senior officer's "egregious breach of trust" was motivated by financial gain.
