The Toronto Star is reporting that "Quebec police say they are investigating after hockey legend Guy Lapointe was threatened by Quebec Hells Angels amid a national rise in tensions in the outlaw biker world. According to Quebec media reports, the Hells Angels motorcycle gang threatened the lives of Insp. Guy Lapointe of the Sûreté du Québec, a provincial police spokesperson on outlaw bikers, and his father, Guy Lapointe Sr., 70, earlier this week."
"The senior Lapointe is a member of the Hockey Hall of Fame starred for the Montreal Canadiens in the 1970s as a defenceman, winning six Stanley Cups. The junior Lapointe has cut a high profile in the Quebec media as a spokesperson on biker issues." "Insp. Lapointe in April told a news conference that police had “dismantled three of the biggest drug trafficking networks in Quebec,” referring to the Hells Angels’ Montreal, South and Trois-Rivières charters."
In Quebec the police instigate the Hells Angels connection to drug trafficking. In BC they don't. In BC the police just send out press releases and do photo ops at Hells Angels parties. After the Kelowna Summer Jam in 2012 the BC Gang Task Force stopped investigating the Hells Angels. That's when Rich Coleman and the BC Liberals disbanded the OMGU.

That's pretty stupid on the HA part. I don't like cops either but Guy Lapointe is a icon of MTL. Remember the wars, the cops stepped in once the public was pissed. Well going after G.L would make the citizens of MTL Quebec and Canada stand up. So why bring that attention. Not too smart HA. Remember the past.ReplyDelete
