Lunar New Year lands on February 1st this year and 2022 is the year of the Tiger.
Astrologers say the Tiger is kind, adventurous and enthusiastic.
Yet Tigers are also aggressive, short-tempered and anxious.
Given the trying times we are encountering, it seems appropriate that the Year of the Tiger is at hand.

As we enter the third year of the pandemic, let us focus on the positive.
Channel the vigor and vitality of the tiger into being kind to one another.
Richmond RCMP wishes everyone good fortune, good health and may everything go your way.
