Under the Canadian Path, the new name of a small group of Cub Scouts within a Pack) is Lair.

While it fits in better with the Jungle Book symbolic framework, it is a drastic change from nearly a century of tradition using the term six. It also has the advantage of avoiding confusion if there isn't exactly siz youth in the lair.

A group of wolves would stay in a lair. The Howlers lead a lair, not a sixer and second (which is usually mistakenly called seconder) as in the older system.
