Seniors, if you have any refugee or immigrant friends please make them aware of scammers

Seniors, if you have any refugee or immigrant friends please make them aware of scammers. Be aware, yourself.

When you pick up the phone and there is a minute of silence before a voice comes on, hang up.

Don’t give any information over the phone. If there are any threats stating that unless you pay up a sum of money, hang up then go to the RCMP and ask them if it is legitimate.

If you are not happy with how the blockade situation is being handled, write to Trudeau and your MP at the House of Commons.

The Crib Tournament will be on April 5 and advance tickets are available only.

That darn groundhog showed his shadow, so now winter is prolonged and there are still patches of ice here and there.
