Quebec's biker war started 25 years ago today

(video) --- On July 13, 1994, in the aftermath of an ultimatum issued by the Hells Angels, three men walked into a motorcycle shop on Henri-Bourassa Blvd. E. and killed Pierre Daoust.

“(Quebec’s biker war) was already hatching, but (it started) from July 13 (1994), because that was the first murder — a guy named Pierre Daoust, in his Harley shop, on Henri-Bourassa (Blvd.). And after that, it was clear (the war had begun).”
— Normand Brisebois, a former rival of the Hells Angels, testifying in court in 1996 after becoming an informant in a murder conspiracy case

No Major Incidents During Hells Angels Ride Though Province

It was a wary truce, but a gathering of outlaw motorcycle gangs in the province stayed relatively peaceful.

Staff Sergeant Steve Conohan is with RCMP Criminal Intelligence. He says a large group of Hells Angels from New Brunswick, along with Bacchus club members and supports were in the province, and have since left.

He says RCMP and RNC were watching them the entire time, and were in no way subtle about it.

He says as soon as the one-percenters arrived RCMP met with their leadership to talk about expectations, and they made their presence known every step of the way during their stay.

He says the overwhelming majority of motorcycle clubs in the province are law-abiding riders.

Biker funeral in Montreal attended by hundreds of Hells Angels, surrounded by police

While he was involved in a bloody war between the Hells Angels and Rock Machine, André (Frisé) Sauvageau received a phone call he probably hadn’t thought possible.

It was Dec. 19, 2000, and Sauvageau, a founding member of the Rock Machine, had spent the previous six years looking over his shoulder as the two groups fought over drug-trafficking turf in Montreal. Police never identified the person on the other end of the line, but the call came from a cellphone owned by Richard (Dick) Mayrand, who was at the time one of the most powerful Hells Angels in Quebec.

During the call, Sauvageau was told that, as far as the Hells Angels were concerned, “the door (was) always open” to him. He defected to the Hells soon after and remained a member of the gang till his death May 26.

Ignore teddy bear image, RCMP warn ahead of biker gang awareness campaign

'We're not trying to scare the public here, we're trying to inform'

As the weather turns warmer, a new joint effort by police across Canada is focusing on educating people about the risk biker gangs pose to communities.

The RCMP, in a joint effort with the Canadian Integrated Response to Organized Crime, is co-ordinating a social media effort with the hope of raising the public's awareness of the dangers biker gangs pose.

"In the Bombard investigation, we had murder, drug trafficking, there's other types of violence," said Supt. Deanna Hill, the federal criminal operations officer for RCMP N.L.

"Just a host of other offences. Anything that these groups can do to profit."

 

We're not trying to scare the public here. We're trying to inform.

Former Hells Angel accused of hit and run was stripped of his patch

Cops were slow to name the hit and run motorcyclist who allegedly ran down a four-year-old boy earlier this week, leaving him in life-threatening condition.

And in a Toronto courtroom on Tuesday, the suspect — a man named Darren Dawson — was allowed to wear his hoodie pulled over his face.

Few courtroom observers had seen anything like it.

Former Rock Machine member told his life is in danger

The Parole Board of Canada has done an about-face and suddenly cancelled the planned release of a former outlaw motorcycle gang leader after having received information that his life is in danger.

On May 7, the parole board granted Jean-François Emard day parole on the 33-month sentence he received in March 2018 after he was convicted of having possessed a firearm and drugs while he was parading around in the gang colours of the Rock Machine, a biker gang best known to Quebecers for its role in a bloody conflict with the Hells Angels between 1994 and 2002. The gang’s name vanished for years after the conflict ended but Emard and a handful of men revived the gang and even granted interviews to a few journalists in 2014 boasting that the gang was back.
