Found my second usable river dustpan! I also pulled a couple of batteries out of the river and will drop them in the recycling container at work. I also got a 30g float and Filip Flisiak's wallet. I think the wallet's been in the river for about ~5 years based on two membership card expiry dates. The CareCard (third from left) turned a weird dark gray colour.

I'll put in a couple of calls to the card issuers in the wallet but doubt they'll help me find the guy. If you happen to know him, please PM me. There's one card in particular that he'll be happy to get back. Lost in the Coquitlam River in 2012 would be my guess :o

Edit: I kept the cards but threw away the wallet. It smelled terrible  ;D

Found the owner of the wallet through the Save-On card!

He and his wife lived in Coquitlam back in 2012. The guy was at home one day when thieves broke into his house and stole some things, including his wallet. They kept the cash and the driver's licence and threw the rest into the river. There was a $120 Lululemon gift card in there but either they didn't notice it or were just looking for cash. The wallet floated downstream about 2km over five years. He and his wife live in Kelowna now so I'm mailing them the cards. Happy ending plus an interesting story!

This is called basic human decency.  Well done for doing this.  The world in general needs a lot more people and actions like this!!!
