HA Kenny Bédard killed in Motorcycle Accident in New Brunswick

Kenny Bédard in 2000
51-year-old Hells Angel Kenny Bédard was killed and nine people were injured after their motorcycles crashed in a "domino effect" while trying to pass a truck hauling a camper trailer near Edmundston, N.B., on Friday night.

The accident happened at around 7:30 p.m. across from a campground in Saint-Basile. Police said the nine motorcyclists — eight men and one woman among about 15 from various biker groups, such has Hells Angels, Red Devils and Dark Siders — were attempting to pass a truck pulling a fifth-wheel recreational trailer as it was turning left into a campground.

Kenny Bédard became known in the early 2000s during the biker war. At that time, he was a member of the Rockers. Kenny Bédard was known to control the southwest sector of Montreal.

It was recently reported he had agreed to be transferred to the Trois-Rivières chapter to become the sixth member in good standing, the minimum number required to restart activities.
The nine other motorcyclists were taken to Edmundston Regional Hospital with multiple injuries.

They are expected to survive. The driver of the truck was not injured.

Format Group - Babak Sarshar illegally clearcuts trees for Toronto residential development

A development firm that cut down a grove of mature trees in North York didn't have a city permit and should face a "very substantial fine," Toronto Mayor John Tory says. Tory toured the neighbourhood in the Bayview Avenue and Bayview Ridge area Thursday after news emerged that some 30 trees, many more than 100 years old, were cleared to make way for an upscale housing development.

Format Group is building what it calls "an upscale community comprised of two blocks of exquisitely appointed homes." Format Group's Sina Saedin said his company acquired the necessary permits. Tory dismissed that claim and said no application was made to the city to remove the trees, some of which were on public land.
The maximum allowable fine for improperly cutting down a tree is $100,000, meaning a fine in the millions of dollars could be laid in this case. There is, however, no precedent for fines that significant.
“A judge will decide what is appropriate but I will be advocating for a very stiff fine if the law has been broken here,” Tory said. “You have to send a signal to this person and everyone else that you can’t treat this as a cost of doing business or some minor inconvenience. If we did that with every law this place would be in complete chaos and there would be no trees left.”
“Obviously it’s devastating for the neighbourhood,” said Councillor Jaye Robinson (Ward 25 Don Valley West). “It’s really deplorable. I’ve had phone calls from people in tears.” Robinson described the lot as having been “clear cut.”

'Every one of our projects is unique in its style and lives in harmony with the existing neighbourhood and enhances the surrounding community.'

The Ontario Municipal Board (OMB) approved townhouses and detached homes on the lots, each previously with a single-family home, at the north and south corners of Bayview Ridge at the intersection with busy Bayview Ave. Approval from the provincial appeal body came after neighbours objected to an application to the city for an official plan amendment and zoning bylaw amendment to allow something other than single-family homes.

Hells Angels Expanding in Ottawa

The Hells Angels are expanding its presence in the national capital region with the help of the Red Devils.

According to police, the Red Devils biker gang now has three branches here — one in Ottawa and two in Gatineau — and members are actively recruiting throughout the region, drafting newcomers from local biker gang Dark Souls.
The Ottawa North and Ottawa East sections of the Red Devils are based in Gatineau, and the third section is based in Ottawa. Police say that in its role as a sort of "farm team" for Hells Angels, the Red Devils do the dirty work in the region — dealing drugs, prostitution, and extortion — funneling money up to the Angels.

"It's the motive of every Red Devils member to become a member of the Hells Angels," said Isnor.

MODESTO, Calif. - Police in Central California have arrested a Canadian woman allegedly carrying 38 kilograms of heroin after a police dog alerted his handler to drugs inside her pickup truck during a traffic stop.

The Modesto Bee reports 63-year-old Kathleen Landry, of Langley, British Columbia, was arrested Monday in Modesto.
In 2006 Kathleen Landry was granted approval to subdivide a 3.75 ha (9.26 acre) parcel into two lots of approximately 1.94 ha (4.79 acres) and 1.81 ha (4.47 acres) at 21350 - 2nd Avenue, Langley.

The address for Azura Management, 15561 Marine Dr, White Rock, BC appears to be for Craftsman Tattoo Parlour. A second address, 3033 - 232 Street Langley, BC appears to be that of an enterprise called 'Backyard Vineyards'
It is not known at this time if there is any relationship to high profile Montreal Hells Angel Frédéric Landry-Hétu, 47

Frédéric Landry-Hétu faced 29 charges including drug trafficking, gangsterism and conspiracy to traffic drugs when he was arrested in March 2013. According to the Quebec government's list of most-wanted criminals, Landry-Hétu also faces 22 murder charges.

He is considered a highly influential Hells Angels member, not only in his chapter but throughout the organization.

This space is doing work on establishing a possible connection to the Dominican Republic. In early 2015 the Toronto Sun reported that many of Quebec's most wanted criminals were hiding there.

A biker gang by the name of Los Barracos in the Dominican city of Cabarete became an official chapter of the Hells Angels in 2009.
The White Rock Chapter clubhouse of the Hells Angels is located at 21764 - 61 Avenue, Langley, B.C.

New Kelowna Gang small but dangerous - Kelowna Warriors

When RCMP arrested a member of a new street gang in Kelowna this month, it was a significant blow to the organization. “They are what we consider a low level street gang (present) only in the immediate Kelowna area,” police said. “You can count their members on two hands.”
The gang came to light last week when a cache of guns, drugs and a vest bearing an unfamiliar crest was displayed to the media by local police after a warrant was executed at a home in West Kelowna.

Tyson Bone was arrested and charged after multiple guns, weapons and drugs were seized from a West Kelowna home, along with a gang vest for the Kelowna Warriors.
The vest taken from the West Kelowna home included three patches, a central logo and the name of the city and gang above and below. “In order to wear the three-piece patch you have to get the consent of whichever outlaw groups control the area. In Kelowna it’s the Hells Angels.”

“One senior member has some past affiliation with the Manitoba Warriors,” he says. “They’re a well-established street level gang originating out of Winnipeg. They’re predominately First Nations.” Houghton however, stops short of calling the Kelowna Warriors a First Nations' gang.
