These two men were stuck in their car when they noticed an old lady trying to cross the street. What did they do? They immediately jumped out and helped walk her safely to her home. Like, all the way home. Later, a kind stranger helped them push their car out of the snow.

It’s not in Ontario, but in Winnipeg, this family celebrated the cold by turning their street into a hockey rink. It’s got painted lines, lights, and a goalie net. In Canada, rumour has it this is how NHL legends are born. 🏒

This construction worker noticed an elderly lady come off the subway. He stopped what he was doing and walked her home, making sure she got home safe.
How's this for heartwarming? A viewer sent us this photo of a construction worker who walked a woman home from the subway station to make sure she got back safely. Toronto the Good, indeed. (Photo submitted by Nick. P.)
