Unless We Showed Up in Hazmat Suits

The Wedding Dress in the Lake
by Susan Mahoney and Steve Wadhams (CBC's Ideas, 2007)
Two artists in Toronto were walking on the shore of Lake Ontario when they noticed what looked like a pile of white garbage bags floating in the shallow water. They got closer and discovered it was a wedding dress. So they pulled it out, squeezed out the sand and water, and then set about trying to uncover the mystery of who it belonged to and why she threw it away.
