Hells Angels back in Nova Scotia

The Hells Angels are back in Nova Scotia and police are expecting to see fully patched members across the province. The Hells Angels Halifax chapter was formed in 1984.

In 2001, police raided the Hells Angels clubhouse on Dutch Village Road in Halifax. 20 people were arrested and the clubhouse was ultimately seized – leading to the chapter folding. A Hells Angels hang-around club was formed last year along Highway 7 in Musquodobit Harbour, N.S.
David ‘Hammer’ Macdonald is being held responsible for bringing the Hells Angels back to Nova Scotia. Police say the London biker helped about 15 members of the Gatekeepers, a puppet club, move a key step closer to becoming full patch Hells Angels by awarding them hang-around status in June, 2016. The next step is becoming a prospect. Macdonald has established a lengthy resume in creating outlaw biker clubs. For years, he was president of the Outlaws in London, bitter rivals to the Hells Angels.

When the Hells Angels moved into Ontario, Macdonald left his position as president of the London Outlaws and patched over to the rival club in 2001. 12 of the hang-around Hells Angels travelled to London last May to “kiss the hands of his new masters,” and returned with black vests carrying a red and white patch that reads London.
