Navan pair, Cornwall man share $1M Max Millions prize
By Fred Sherwin

John Bradley, is one of the few retailers in Ontario to both sell a million dollar lottery ticket, and cash one in.

The owner of J.T. Braldey's Country Convenience in Navan recently cashed in a winning Max Millions million dollar ticket with friend and store manager Dan Bissonnette and Jean-Marc Chevrier from Cornwall who drives the Beer Store truck and makes regular deliveries to the store.

The three men have been buying Lotto Max quick pick tickets for more than two years now.

Because of the Lotto Ontario rules governing the ability of retal store owners to purchase lottery tickets, Chevrier was in charge of buying the tickets and none of the tickets were ever purchased at Bradley's.

In fact, their winning ticket was bought at a store in Martinstown while Chevrier was making his rounds. The exact amount is $1,000,002 because they also played Encore.

John found out about thier big win by phone.

"Chevy called me up and said, 'You're not going to believe it. We won a million bucks', and he was right, I didn't believe him. It wasn't until he finally showed us the ticket that it actually sunk in. It was a pretty good feeling," recalls John.

While one third if a million dollars doesn't make either of the three men particularly rich, it does help take the stress off of having to pay the bills every month.

"It definitelty eases things a bit," said John, who plans to spend some of the money on a possible trip with his wife.

Although the mens' winning ticket was bought at a different store, J.T. Bradley's has sold it's fair share of winning lottery tickets over the years.

A $250,000 ticket was purchased in the spring and a million dollar scratch ticket was sold to local resident and business owner Steve Smith in the late 90s..
