Speaking of the elephant in the room, here's another case that smells pretty fishy. The National Post is reporting that "A woman who lost her security clearance allowing access to restricted areas at the Vancouver International Airport - and with it her job with airport ground services - because she was once married to a member of the Hells Angels."
"Janette Yuen Shan Wu says the decision punishes her 'for the actions of someone else' and she is not giving up her fight for a job she loved. Wu had an acrimonious split with her husband in 2006, at least partly because he joined the Hells Angels Motorcycle Club. Two years after her split, she started work with Airport Terminal Services. She received the required airport security clearance and has since remarried - to a U.S. deputy sheriff in Washington State. In 2015, the RCMP warned Transport Canada of Wu’s circumstances."
This case isn't just the epitome of hypocrisy, it smells downright fishy. The ex wife of a member of the Hells Angels loses her security clearance at the airport while full patch Hells Angels are allowed port passes to work at the docks. That is unequal enforcement of the law.
Another example is Mindi Niedermeiser, the B.C. border guard who partied with the Hells Angels, had been previously fired by the Canada Border Services Agency for misconduct but was reinstated after an appeal. So we have active members of the Hells Angels and their associates obtaining security clearances they shouldn't while someone who is clearly no longer affiliated with the club or never was is denied a security clearance. Something doesn't add up.
Janette claims she had an acrimonious split with her husband in 2006. No doubt. We all know how amicable contested custody disputes are especially when they involve a contested distribution of assets. Add that to marrying a cop and we can see she no longer has any ties to the club. It looks more like she is being punished by a member of the new and not improved BC Gang Task force who is doing a favour for an old friend and perhaps even a CI.
When the "New" BC Gang task force runs interference for the Hells Angels in the press, one has to wonder what side they are really on? If they are now compromised like the EPS perhaps we should contract out Alberta's Gang Task force ALERT since they are still putting the pressure on the Hells Angels despite the fact that the BC Gang Task force has stopped. It comes as no big surprise. We saw the writing on the all after the Kelowna Summer Jam. They did such a good job busting David Giles and that stolen car ring in Kelowna the Christy Clark government disbanded the OMGU (Outlaw Motorcycle Gang Unit) and cut funding to the gang task force. Every time a police task force found organized crime a government body disbanded that police task force. Now the Hells Angels are using them and the courts to punish rivals.
There is no way this woman who is now remarried to a US Sheriff poses any security risk at the airport whatsoever. What is more likely is that the club doesn't want her there in case she recognized someone like Villy trying to smuggle a gun on a plane and alerts the authorities. It's more likely that the HAs wanted her out and the gang task force accommodated them. Just like how they will kick a Hells Angels associate out of a bar under Barwatch but not an actual patch holder. It is also sad to see how much influence the Hells Angels have over the courts. It is reminiscent of Peter Leask and Ron Skolrood. If it looks like a fish, swims like a fish and smells like a fish, odds are something fishy is indeed going on.
