Transfer a TELUS plan and keep number?

I have a TELUS contract with about 21 months left. It’s the $85 15gb shareable plan with unlimited calls/texts.
Rather than just cancelling it and losing the plan which I know a lot of people would like can I transfer it to someone else and keep my number on another TELUS plan?
It has a device balance that would be tied to the plan, but I’m sure people would be ok as it’s such a good plan. That device amount is included in the $85 a month.

Is it not possible to make a second line and transfer my old number to that line? Then give the old line a new number which I can then transfer?

As has been mentioned in numerous threads, carriers don't do number transfers anymore.

Used to be possible for a rep on the phone to do this for you, but even back then it was extremely YMMV. I haven't heard of anybody successfully doing this in a couple years, now.
