A new neighbourhood watch group made up of the city’s Filipino community says they’ve been inspired by the Bear Clan Patrol and they’re set to hit the streets of Winnipeg.
They call themselves the 204 Neighbourhood Watch and they will be going out on their first patrol on Monday night, with guidance from Bear Clan members and founder James Favel.
“It’s actually a group of volunteers and the direction is to do something like the Bear Clan is doing but we are starting with the Filipino community,” said Leila Castro, who started the group.
“Later on we would like to go multicultural because everybody is part of the community.”
The group learned the practical side of patrolling, like how to deal with drug paraphernalia and make sure everyone is safe through Bear Clan Patrol. More of this story on:
