Be Wary and Be Safe


The RCMP have asked, and it”s a good idea, that we remind you that during the holiday period some fraud schemes ramp up. Especially ones where you are asked to send money because it is urgent.

If a relative contacts you asking for emergency money and they are off in a place you didn’t expect them to be do not send them money before you check to see if this person really is who they say they are. Try getting in touch with them or their friends and family in the way you normally would and ask them to help you verify the request is real.

If you get an email or phone call from the ‘Canada Revenue Agency’ do not comply with the requests or click on the links. the CRA is not calling or emailing – if they have something important to notify you about they will send you real, registered, mail.  Instead look up the contact information for the CRA and get in touch with them yourself. The CRA has a section in its website called “Protect yourself against fraud” dedicated to this.

Santa Comes to Grand Forks

Dec 2 is the day Santa came to town.
You can see him riding the last float in the parade video below.
The weather cooperated – Grand Forks got its first snowfall of the season just in time for the parade.

After the parade was the official switching on of the ‘tree’ and light display in Gyro Park. This year there are 3 trees.

A lot of people came out and enjoyed the events. Many are giving congratulations to the people who put all this on.
