Dale Kelland - Manitoba Hells Angels revisted II

Dale Kelland, (Dale Donovan) was peddling Nomad gear in 2021.
Dale 'Deli' Kelland of the Manitoba Nomads made international headlines in mid-2008, calling on HA and associates to fight back against heinous biker discrimination. He compared the 'no colours' policy to the discrimination Indians faced under the Indian Act. "This treatment of Canadians was wrong then and it's wrong now" he spewed.

Legal experts said at the time what he is doing could be considered a crime. Criminal offences, including extortion (section 346) and intimidation (section 423) can be used to address organized crime activity. Dale Kelland had been convicted of gangsterism.

In 2009 Dale Kelland was sentenced to eight years in prison for his role in a drug trafficking operation and for trying to recruit gang members.
When Dale Kelland, (Dale Donovan) heard bikers had been turned away from a hotel for wearing their colours he called on his 1% world to slag the business. They obeyed. Supporters took to social media to express their overwhelming displeasure with the Marion Hotel. Dale Kelland, (Dale Donovan) created a global chitstorm with his vendetta against small businesses in Winnipeg that refused to kiss his filthy 1% asshole. The CBC did a feature and so did news outlets in Australia and Germany. Kelland eventually shut that big mouth, too late for the club. The bad press was of tidal wave proportion.

Under Manitoba law, the Hells Angels are a criminal organization. This manner of damage to the club, from farmers, is unthinkable.

Before attacking the hotel and eatery, Kelland targeted the Headingley Sport Shop Ltd./ Indian Motorcycle in Winnipeg.
When the small Winnipeg business removed its Facebook page, the bikers then attacked the Marion Street Eatery, a restaurant in the hotel. Within 24 hours hundreds of people, most of them from outside Canada, posted one-star reviews on the restaurant's Facebook page, reducing its 4.5-star reputation to three stars overnight. They later targeted a TripAdvisor website.

Over the subsequent years Dale Kelland (Dale Donovan) has managed to keep that dopey trap shut.

In 2020 a 14-year-old boy was charged for 4 HA connected drug trade shootings in Winnipeg. He was charged with first degree murder, attempted murder, aggravated assault, assault with a weapon and other firearms offences.
