The owner-operator of Rise and Shine Landscaping in Black Creek, B.C. thought she might have to sell her house in order to keep her business going following the theft two months ago of her excavator. The machine was recently found, but it requires $15,000 in repairs after its roof was removed and gears were stripped. A GoFundMe page was set up for her after she was unable to work for about two months.
