Montreal HA Daniel André Giroux tells parole board what's up

Daniel André Giroux, 52, was sentenced to seven years in prison in July 2021 after pleading guilty to gangsterism and drug trafficking. After pre-trial custody, he had 30 months left, and he was released at two-thirds of his sentence. Because the biker represents a risk to society, the parole board imposed conditions. Giroux must stay in a halfway house, disclose his financial transactions, not communicate with any individual involved in a criminal organization or having a criminal history, and he will not be able to go to bars or consume drugs and alcohol. Giroux argued this was illegal and violated the Canadian Charter of Rights and Freedoms, that there is no applicable law that allows for the imposition of special conditions, and that he "does not and will not consent" to them.
The PCB was unimpressed and had other ideas. Daniel André Giroux can either abide by his conditions or return to prison.
