First Nation, Manitoba Hydro turn to Bear Clan Patrol following scathing report of abuse

 

The fallout continues from a bombshell report that showed decades of racism and sexual abuse by Manitoba Hydro workers working on projects near northern First Nations communities.

Now, Fox Lake Cree Nation and Manitoba Hydro itself have tapped Winnipeg’s Bear Clan Patrol for help.

Melissa Ridgen caught up with the Bear Clan’s James Favel to explain.

  1. James Favel is a true hero in both Winnipeg and Manitoba, he has done more for his indigenous community a short time span (comparatively) than our governments have ever done. God Bless this man!
