Global BC TV‘s Barry Deley is about the learn just how true “mo’ toonies, mo’ problems” really is. The Vancouver sportscaster/ Canucks reporter just won a local lottery; on the air! This is somewhat of a real life version of that early years The Simpsons episode when Kent Brockman reported himself the Springfield lottery winner.

Deley gets a choice of a $2 million cash or a $2.5 million house (pronounced “hoose” in this video, you’ll love the Canadian accents and jargon in this video after the jump)

As Deley points out, he’ll still make only 20% as much as Canucks goaltender Roberto Luongo.

Deley is now among the richest people in the world connected to the Canucks. The hottest Canucks fan is actress/model Cobie Smulders. (photographic evidence)

By the way, if this seems rigged or fixed….according to Yahoo:

The total sale of tickets brought in $9 million for the hospital. Taking out the $3.3 million in prizes, the hospital would stand to net more than $5 million from the raffle.

If you were like Deley and wondering whether it was “fishy” that he won, the official raffle rules state that only employees of the hospital and the official auditors were ineligible to enter. Deley purchased his tickets like everyone else.
