Wolf Pack volunteer group patrols Montreal’s streets to protect the most vulnerable – The Loop

Three times a week, Wolf Pack Street Patrol volunteers take to Montreal streets to aid the city’s homeless population. The new initiative is particularly focused on helping Indigenous peoples, who are disproportionately represented in the city’s homeless statistics.

When night falls in Montreal, a group of volunteers called the Wolf Pack Street Patrol hits the streets of Montreal’s downtown core armed with supplies—from blankets to clothing to a compassionate ear—for the city’s homeless population.

The initiative was started earlier this year by Alan Harrington, a First Nation man and outreach worker, who says that his own experiences with drug and alcohol addiction and homelessness in Thunder Bay, Ont., make him uniquely suited to understanding the challenges that homeless people face at night.
