Thanks to establishing a new chapter of the Bear Clan Patrol, neighbourhoods in Northwest Winnipeg have become safer.

In 2020, Gary started walking with the Bear Clan Patrol. After a series of break-ins and vandalism in the neighbourhood, he formed a small community-run watch group called Northwest Watchers Patrol Group. In 2022, they formally became the new chapter of the Bear Clan Patrol.

“Since my first day in Canada, I have been working on Ukrainian News. As a Ukrainian-speaking journalist, I focused on stories related to the Ukrainian community in Manitoba. The more I live in Canada, the more I face current civic concerns and issues the more I want to find solutions to these problems. That’s how the idea for “Community Hour” came about.

I’m delighted to have lots of exciting people in our studio. I love listening to their stories and experiences and getting the answers to our community’s civic questions.”
