Former Bacchus Saint John president denied permission to pick where he lives

Matthew Thomas Foley shot and killed a man in the middle of a Saint John street in 2012

The Parole Board of Canada has blocked the former president of the Saint John chapter of the Bacchus Motorcycle Club from choosing where he lives, determining it would pose "an undue risk to society."

Matthew Thomas Foley is serving a 10-year prison sentence for manslaughter, after he shot and killed 31-year-old Michael Thomas Schimpf in the middle of Pitt Street in Saint John in 2012.

Foley was released from prison on statutory release last year, something that's mandatory after an offender serves two-thirds of their sentence.

He's been serving the remainder of his sentence in the community, but the decision doesn't specify the city or province where Foley resides.

The parole board decision, dated May 8, suggests Foley was concerned about the impact of COVID-19 in the facility where he lives.

Fate of former Hells Angels bunker in Quebec sparks debate

The mayor and a councillor of the Quebec city do not see eye-to-eye on what should be done with the site of the Lennoxville Purge.

(video) --- A debate has broken out between the mayor of Sherbrooke and a local city councillor over the fate of a former Hells Angels bunker in the borough of Lennoxville.

While Mayor Steve Lussier wants the building quickly demolished, noting that it was the site of bloody crimes and is a reminder of a dark period of the city’s history, councillor Évelyne Beaudin thinks the bunker, located in a quiet, wooded area, could be recycled into museum on crime.

Day parole cancelled for Hells Angels member

Robin Moulton is serving a prison sentence for drug charges

The Parole Board of Canada has cancelled day parole for a man police have described as a full-patch member of the Hells Angels, after he rejected the release location proposed by Correctional Service Canada (CSC).

Robin Moulton, 51, is serving a sentence of two years, nine months and 15 days, after time served, for possession of cocaine for the purpose of trafficking and possession of a drug press with the intention of producing or trafficking a substance.

"In this instance you are adamant that you do not want to be released as was proposed," the decision, dated May 5, says.

"Further, due to an abundance of security information that speaks to the risk your presence poses in any number of release destinations, CSC is only able to arrange your release to a city with a community correctional centre that you have no intention of going to."
