'Screwy Ride' brings out HA, cops, in Vancouver - update III

The plot has thickened regarding Wayne 'Willy' Williams. The Commandos aren’t just affiliated, the RCMP’s gang unit, the Combined Forces Special Enforcement Unit (CFSEU-BC), lists them as a puppet club of the HA. This distinction puts them in the same category as the Red Devils MC.

Wayne Williams - Chilliwack School District Williams is said to have a Hells Angels sticker on his Harley for years. This would be banned if he wasn’t a HA associate.

Williams said he rides with the Commandos Motorcycle Club, a group comprised of “active and retired Canadian Armed Forces and Allied Military Members.” Williams refused to comment if it was appropriate for him to spend his time with OMG bikers primarily engaged in organized crime.
Cops tend to pay close attention every time Hells Angels gather for one of their group rides. Whom the bikers call associates is one of their concerns. Photojournalist Jason Payne was there as the bikers gathered at Ocean View Cemetery in Burnaby. One face was recognized by Chilliwack citizens. The photo shows two Hells Angels smiling and embracing, along with a man smiling facing them with a vest with the word 'Veteran'. That man is Chilliwack School District manager of transportation Wayne Williams.
The HAMC would have had to approve the 3 patch colours worn by the group.
It's 2019 and about 80 Hells Angels and associates gathered at the East End clubhouse for their annual ride to pay tribute to Dave (Screwy) Swartz. Vancouver cops checked vehicle registrations, prompting East End chapter president John Bryce to chat with police.
This year Vancouver cops on motorcycles and in cars were stationed around the clubhouse at 3598 East Georgia Street. It is no longer HAMC property and confused bikers eventually congregated at Swartz’s grave in Oceanview Cemetery in Burnaby.

David Ernest Paul “Screwy” Swartz died 6 Apr 1988 aged 32. He was shot and killed with a rifle by his friend Lynn Neil Eddington, who then killed himself with the same gun. The men had been drinking heavily at a party when they began fighting.
