A retired civil servant from Manotick, Ontario is the big winner in this year's 50-50 Grey Cup draw.

William Charlebois came to the province when his son invited him here for the big game.

Audrey Charlebois says she found about her husband's $252,000 windfall last night.

"Well, last night I guess, they called me, they were screaming and yelling," she said. "Go Riders!"

William Charlebois is still in Saskatoon. He'll claim his prize and then head home.
