The Bear Clan is a well known grassroots organization in Winnipeg which is now spreading to other cities such as Kenora and Regina.
It was founded by Indigenous women who were supported by some of the men in the community.
Members of the Bear Clan patrol the streets of the North End to help protect the vulnerable in that part of the city. James Favel and Jesse Lee of the Bear Clan spent some time in studio to share their story.
The fight between Canada Post and the Canadian Union of Postal Workers continues. The crown corporation has issued a lockout notice which means that mail delivery could halt as soon as Friday but Jon Hamilton of Canada Post tells us that doesn’t necessarily mean it will happen.
