New Satan’s Choice biker club considering shutting down after harsh Facebook criticism

The new club is taking a Facebook slamming by online friends of GTA Hells Angel Donny Petersen.

A group of Ontario bikers is having second thoughts about calling themselves the new Satan’s Choice Club after a harsh Facebook condemnation of their club by a senior Hells Angel.

The new club is taking a Facebook slamming by online friends of GTA Hells Angel Donny Petersen.

“Those who take a patch from a respected club, one that has history, courage, who has paid their dues, died, done time and all the rest . . . like what are you thinking?” Petersen himself wrote.

“You are pretenders,” Petersen wrote.

Petersen’s comments received resounding approval from his Facebook friends.

The old Satan’s Choice was on the road for four decades before it ceased to exist when it was absorbed by the Hells Angels in December 2000.


Hells Angels hold fourth public gathering in Quebec

The Hells Angels are holding their fourth public gathering in the province of Quebec in as many weeks. Today, bikers are expected to meet in the small village of Saint Zénon, in the Lanaudiere region. 

The Journal de Montreal reports the event is organized by the "Brotherhood," a group of Hells sympathizers that includes chapters from Quebec; Monteal; the North-Shore; the Montéréie and Shawinigan. 

Hells' members are expected to leave Laval in the early afternoon on Saturday and then proceed to the small auberge, Le Cabanon de Saint-Zénon. 
One of the owners says the Hells have been meeting there for three years and that he has never had any problems. 


High-profile B.C. Hells Angel released after cocaine charges stayed

For years, friends of incarcerated Hells Angel Larry Amero have pasted “Free Larry” stickers on their Harleys to demand his release.

On Wednesday, they finally got their wish after a judge in Quebec stayed organized crime and cocaine importation charges against the prominent B.C. gangster.

Prosecutor Philippe Vallières-Roland confirmed to Postmedia News that the charges were stayed because of the length of time the case took to get to trial.

Last year, the Supreme Court of Canada set a 30-month time limit for prosecutions at the provincial supreme court level to be completed, except in exceptional circumstances.

Amero is the highest-profile B.C. gangster to have his case thrown out under the so-called Jordan Rule.

The 40-year-old biker has been in jail since his arrest in Montreal in November 2012 as a prime target in Québec provincial police’s Project Loquace, which resulted in more than 100 arrests.

A gathering of the Dark Souls biker gang, which has alleged links to the Hells Angels, was interrupted this weekend by a police surveillance operation.

Four people were arrested on Saturday in Saint-Lambert-de-Lauzon, located about 35 kilometres south of Quebec City, by the Sûreté du Québec, the RCMP and local police forces.

The event's organizer could be facing charges for illegally possessing and selling alcohol, while another man was arrested for the negligent storage of a firearm, according to police. The two others at the gathering were wanted under arrest warrants.

Many of the patches seen in Saint-Pie

Many of the Hells Angels and members of other groups of bikers have sported proudly their colors Saturday at the ” Thunder Bike Show “, a gathering of motorcyclists at the race track Sanair in Saint-Pie.

The Journal has been able to observe the presence of at least 15 different groups from various regions of the province and outside the province of Quebec.

Back to the future: Satan’s Choice biker club reappears on Ontario roads

Once the second largest outlaw motorcycle club in the world, the Satan’s Choice club folded in December 2000 when it was absorbed by the Hells Angels.

Ontario police can be forgiven for doing double takes this summer at the sight of bikers wearing the grinning devil patch of the Satan’s Choice Motorcycle Club on their backs.

Once the second largest outlaw motorcycle club in the world, the Satan’s Choice club folded in December 2000 when it was absorbed by the Hells Angels.

This summer, a group of Durham and Ottawa-area bikers have re-invented the Satan’s Choice club, which will likely upset Hells Angels bikers, said Det. Sgt. Len Isnor of the OPP Biker Enforcement Unit.

“It’s a bit shocking,” Isnor said. “By somebody bringing them back, there could be some problems. Yes, we’re going to watch.”

The Hells Angels had no immediate comment on the new club.
