UPDATE: Monday, July 7
Transit was diverted in Toronto and the police called when one of Search+Rescue cases located at the busy intersection of Spadina and Dundas Street was reported as a “suspicious package”. Within a few hours CoorsLight announced on Twitter that they were ending the promotion.
All adventures must come to an end. Thx to all who participated in #searchandrescue. For those who were disrupted in anyway, our apologies.

This month Coors Light will have Canadians beating the bushes and scouring back alleys from coast to coast, hoping to find one of the 880 hidden ‘Search+Rescue’ boxes hidden across the country.
Until July 31, Canadians (of legal drinking age) can visit searchandrescue.ca to enter the location and hopefully spot one of the Search+Rescue boxes nearby. Each box contains an adventure-themed prize including racecar driving, rafting trips, Coors Light parties or gift cards.
When a box is found, the finder must follow @coorslightCA and tweet a picture of themselves with the box along with the unique box code and the hashtag #searchandrescue.
The campaign was created by Leo Burnett Toronto.
