|The Hells Angels are back in Nova Scotia and police are expecting to see fully patched members across the province. The Hells Angels Halifax chapter was formed in 1984.|
In 2001, police raided the Hells Angels clubhouse on Dutch Village Road in Halifax. 20 people were arrested and the clubhouse was ultimately seized – leading to the chapter folding. A Hells Angels hang-around club was formed last year along Highway 7 in Musquodobit Harbour, N.S.
|David ‘Hammer’ Macdonald is being held responsible for bringing the Hells Angels back to Nova Scotia. Police say the London biker helped about 15 members of the Gatekeepers, a puppet club, move a key step closer to becoming full patch Hells Angels by awarding them hang-around status in June, 2016. The next step is becoming a prospect. Macdonald has established a lengthy resume in creating outlaw biker clubs. For years, he was president of the Outlaws in London, bitter rivals to the Hells Angels.|
When the Hells Angels moved into Ontario, Macdonald left his position as president of the London Outlaws and patched over to the rival club in 2001. 12 of the hang-around Hells Angels travelled to London last May to “kiss the hands of his new masters,” and returned with black vests carrying a red and white patch that reads London.
