Yukon lottery winners plan to stay in Faro
Two lottery winners in Faro, Yukon say they plan to use some of their winnings to help their community.
Sisters Krista Picket and Shelley Shaw and six other co-workers won equal shares of a $25 million Lotto Max prize.
Shaw says they have no plans to leave Faro, a community with a population of 344 in the 2011 census.
"Faro is our home and we would like to put some money back into this community," she said. "We've been through a lot of ups and downs living in Faro and this is great for Faro."
Both Shaw and Picket work at the Faro Mine remediation project. They say they plan to keep their jobs.
The sisters say they'll use the money to help their family first, then they may buy a new truck.
