In terms of target domains, you remain assessed as high need for improvement in the areas of Associates and Attitude; moderate need for improvement for Personal/ Emotional; and no need for improvement in Community Functioning, Marital/ Family, Education/ Employment, and Substance Abuse.”

His parole file states he must continue to “avoid certain persons” who might be suspected of criminal activity, “including but not limited to those who buy, use, sell, manufacture, store or distribute illicit and non-prescribed drugs, who are members of any outlaw motorcycle gang, street gang or criminal organization, any associates of members of outlaw motorcycle gangs, street gangs or criminal organizations or anyone who has, or you believe may have, a criminal record and any person known to hang around or wannabe or any outlaw motorcycle gang.”

Stadnick’s parole file shows he was polite and respectful to guards while in prison, but that he continued to break the law.

While in custody in the Kingston area, he was transferred from medium to maximum security prisons in 2006 and 2009 “for illegal trafficking activities and large-scale loansharking within the institution.”

He also showed no inclination to change his ways, his prison file states.

Earlier parole records say Stadnick has never shown remorse for his actions, since joining the Hells Angels in 1982.

His files say he helped found the elite Nomads chapter in Montreal in 1995.

Stadnick was arrested in the massive 2001 Sûreté du Québec Printemps police operation, aimed at ending gang war between the Hells Angels Montreal Nomads chapter and the Rock Machine, and at stopping the Nomads’ expansion.

The war between the Hells Angels and Rock Machine cost at least 160 lives, including innocent victims.
