Good deed salvages Island trip for visitors

Because of an unfortunate incident discovered what Duncan is really made of.

Duncan, this was the first time we’ve travelled through your city and because of an unfortunate incident discovered what Duncan is really made of.

In a world “all about me”, we met some amazing people, especially one individual who exceedingly restored our faith in humanity. An unbelievable act of kindness in assisting two Mainland women who took the ferry over to the Island on Tuesday, Aug. 25 for the day to meet up with friends from California on an Island bus trip out of Nanaimo. Meandering up the coast from Swartz Bay to kill time and make the trip worth the ferry expense, stopped in Duncan to buy bottled water and accidentally locked the keys in the car.

With the help of a department store manager, we contacted a local locksmith who, unable to help us, suggested we contact the local car dealer, which we did and were told to tow the vehicle to the dealership and they would look at it the next day. Called 9-1-1 who promptly told us they could not help and to call a tow truck.

Called a tow truck and while we were waiting someone returning to their car asked if we had a problem.

After over an hour and with much diligence and perseverance, he managed to retrieve the keys. Because of his extreme kindness we were able to enjoy a few hours with our friends and catch the last ferry home.

We wish to publicly thank “Mr. J. Spice” who is a great Ambassador for the City of Duncan. You must be very proud.
