More than 400 motorcyclists gathered in the Cave of the South Chapter in Saint-Charles-sur-Richelieu during the day to celebrate the first run. This is a mandatory activity for all Hells members in good standing.

At around 2 p.m., an impressive procession of around 150 motorcycles arrived at the same time. It was something of a show of force by the group, as authorities have been searching and arresting their own in recent weeks.

All those who went to the rally, the first of this magnitude since 2019, were systematically intercepted by the police. They had to undergo an identity check, then a mechanical check of their machine.

Without hanging up

The latter complied without much reluctance, except that the majority had to wait more than an hour before being allowed to enter the checkpoint, the site of the celebrations on a 4th tier lot at the time. Several large white capitals had been erected there to welcome the guests.

According to our information, 430 offense reports, mainly in connection with the road traffic regulations, were handed over during this operation, during which secret service agents also took the opportunity to update their photo album.

More than 400 bikers, including several Hells Angels, gathered at the South Chapter hideout in Montérégie.

The motorcycle of a member of the Hells of Saskatchewan was also confiscated by officers because he failed to pay for a 2018 Quebec ticket.

In addition to the Sûreté du Québec, officers from the Royal Canadian Mounted Police, the Service de Police de la Ville de Montréal and the Service de Police de Laval were present.

Several groups present

Members from all of the Hells Angels chapters in Quebec were in attendance, as well as from other provinces such as Ontario, Saskatchewan and New Brunswick.

A Saskatchewan Hellsman had his motorcycle towed away for an unpaid ticket since a large gathering of bikers in August 2018.

From what could be seen, about thirty groups of bikers, either Hells School Clubs or supporters, showed up to the party including the Red Devils, the Dark Souls, the Devil Ones, the Death Messengers. The Montreal Jackals have been sighted by authorities for the first time.

Two New “Full Patches”

The Hells Angels also used their first motorcycle parade of the year to welcome two new members to their ranks.

They are Luc Bordeleau from the Trois-Rivières Chapter and Vincent Lauzon from the Sherbrooke Chapter.

In the days of the Biker Wars, Bordeleau was a prospect for the defunct Nomads Chapter, according to various court rulings. He also had ties to his sister club, the Rockers.

Gregory Woolley, already referred to by the police as the “godfather” of the street gangs in Montreal, was also seen. This ex-rocker, who is close to Maurice “Mom” Boucher, is still considered very influential.
