Very long time and devoted OCAP member. Seems to have been very badly hurt by the system in his past and gets emotional talking about it. Seems to think OCAP is a solution for this. Works as a social worker for street health downtown. At one time was transfered to Scarborough to stop him recruiting homeless people into OCAP but he found his way back.
At least this one is not really dangerous unlike many other OCAP true beleivers.
I don't know about his (Beric German's) employment today but I did confirm with a social worker here that Beric has for around for at least the past 20 years been working as one of the original street outreach workers at Streethealth.
There had been a push for the workers to do more outreach with the homeless and less protesting on paid time by the executive director Laura Cowan, but as my friend told me, led by Beric and 2 OCAP people Gatean Heroux and Danielle Koyama they fought back and stacked the board with people like Mark Brill who I see a lot about on your website.
She doesn't know if Laura quit or was fired by the board but she left and the extremists went back to doing pretty much what they wanted on their paid time. I wonder how much money Streethealth gets out of the city?
