Terrace residents have won big with a $200,000 scratch-and-win prize.

Debra Dorsch and Joseph Daniel Belanger landed the big prize from BCLC’s Premier Fortune scratch-and-win ticket.

“I immediately texted Dan saying, ‘holy cow, we won,’” said Dorsch. “It was exhilarating.”

“Of course, it was great,” said Belanger. “What would you feel? To confirm it was real, we went back to the Husky.”

To celebrate, the pair treated themselves to a sushi dinner, and have plans to use their win responsibly.

“I want to live debt free and be a responsible adult,” said Dorsch.

“I want to pay off my mortgage,” said Belanger.
