“This 16 month investigation was lengthy, in part, due to the more than 250 complaints received from members of the public in relation to this file,” Sgt. Colleen Lyons, from the RCMP federal serious and organized crime unit north, said in a statement.

“We appreciate the patience shown by victims as we completed the investigation and laid one all-encompassing charge. All aspects of the investigation will be presented as evidence in court.”

Kindersley RCMP started receiving complaints in January 2016 after people booking trips through the travel agency said they never received tickets to their destination.
