On Sept. 5, Const. Don McIntosh and Const. Nancy Saggar of the West Shore RCMP delivered a presentation to international masters students at Royal Roads University.

The presentation was aimed at helping new students transition to studying abroad and learn Canadian laws.

McIntosh, who is also the cannabis liaison officer with the West Shore RCMP, said it is a “pleasure” to meet with students.
