In recognition of Fraud Prevention Month, the Saanich Peninsula CRN ran a campaign focusing on financial abuse, fraud, and scam prevention, publishing editorials in several local publications and partnering with SHOAL Centre for Seniors in setting up information displays. Their efforts resulted in a distribution of approximately 35,500 individual publications to the Island community.
