New biker gang with ties to Hells Angels crops up in Lower Mainland - Maple Ridge NewsWednesday, March 27, 2019
The Hells Angels have been involved in drugs, weapons offenses, and violent crimes, she noted.
Hells Angels have gathered in Langley for years.
The White Rock chapter of the Hells Angels moved to Langley decades ago. In 2013, the chapter threw a 30th anniversary bash that drew a large number of bikers and guests to the gated clubhouse property on 61st Avenue east of 216th Street. Police were also there in droves, monitoring the coming and goings of the guests.
In 2016, Hells Angels member Robert Green was shot and killed during a party on a property on 72nd Avenue in rural Langley.
Jason Francis Wallace, a Langley man with a long history of violence including an unprovoked stabbing when he was just 18 years old, turned himself into police and pleaded guilty to manslaughter.
A week after Green's death, Shaun Allan Clary was found killed and dismembered on Langley's Robertson Crescent. Integrated Homicide Investigation Team (IHIT) officers said the killing of Clary, who had gang ties, was linked to the Green homicide.

Police identifies victim butchered and dumped in Langley, BC - CanoeThursday, March 09, 2017
Robertson Crescent driveway of a full-patch member of the Hells Angels' West Point chapter, Postmedia has also learned.And early Tuesday morning, Mohammed Rafiq, a Hells Angel prospect with the White Rock chapter, was shot in the head in front of his Burnaby home. He survived, but crashed his car into a neighbour’s house.IHIT Cpl. Meghan Foster warned the public not to jump to conclusions about what is going on.“While investigators are aware of the heightened tension between particular gang associates, it would be premature to assume this conflict to be the direct motive for his homicide,” she said of Clary’s grisly demise. “We continue to work with our partners, in the Lower Mainland and beyond, to gather further evidence that would identify specific links to support our investigation.”Green, 56, was a popular and powerful Hells Angel for more than 20 years.He started as a bartender at the Drake Hotel in Vancouver, before joining the East End Chapter as a full-patch Hells Angel. He later moved to the Nomads chapter and more recently out to the Mission chapter.Hells Angels from across Canada have been arriving for his memorial service at Vancouver’s Fraserview Hall on Saturday.Vancouver Police Staff Sgt. Randy Fincham said officers will be monitoring the event.“As the Hells Angels are a criminal organization, the VPD has plans in place to reduce the risk to the public. Public safety remains our primary concern,” Fincham said.Clary had a minor criminal record, including convictions for assault and breach of conditions. He was also the subject of a peace bond after allegations of uttering threats.His Facebook page is full of pictures of him wearing bandanas over his mouth, guns and associates flashing their middle fingers. He says he went to Johnston Heights Secondary in Surrey.While his Facebook friends are all blocked from public view, a man he described as family lists several prominent 856 members as friends, including Green’s cousin Len Pelletier.In a December 2009 comment on his timeline, Clary wrote: “It’s not important how many people I’ve killed. It’s important how I get along with the people that are still alive.”IHIT’s Foster urged people with information about Clary’s murder to contact investigators at 1-877-551-4448.“The targeted a...

Ellen White, Kwulasulwut, died Tuesday at age 95, and her funeral was held Saturday morning at the Beban Park Social Centre.
White was a member of the Order of Canada and the Order of British Columbia and her obituary remembers her as an "educator, cultural knowledge keeper, author, linguist, herbalist, healer, traditional midwife, and political activist and advocate."
She was one of the founders of the Tillicum Haus Aboriginal Friendship Centre and was an elder-in-residence in Vancouver Island University's First Nations studies program.
"She possessed a pure, kind and radiant heart," said Les Malbon, who described himself as one of White's adopted grandchildren as he delivered her eulogy Saturday.
White's name, Kwulasulwut, translates to ‘many stars' and Malbon alluded to that as he addressed the people gathered in the social centre.
"I look out now and I see the many stars," he said. "I see how she impacted the community. I see how much she loved her family and I appreciated, personally, how much that love changed me and how it's changed all of us to be better people and behoove us to be kind to one another and to work towards a world of unity."
Malbon said the White home was always filled with visitors, and Ellen White also travelled to meet people and sh...
