High-ranking Hells Angels member shot in Lachute - Montreal Gazette

Thursday, September 15, 2016

The funeral was attended by dozens of Hells Angels from across Canada, and Boudreau could be seen walking side-by-side with Martin Bernatchez, 35, a former resident of Granby, who is the president of the Nomads chapter in Ontario. Both men stood out at the gathering as they both donned red jackets while most of the other gang members were wearing the black leather jackets that Hells Angels are normally seen in.  Nomads chapters are considered as “elite” among the Hells Angels. Police experts have testified in past court cases that the Nomads designation means the chapter’s members can operate without the territorial limitations other chapters are generally expected to respect when it comes to activities like drug trafficking.  Operation SharQc was an investigation that focused on a very violent period between 1994 and 2002 when the Hells Angels in Quebec were at war with members of rival criminal organizations. While police estimated that more than 160 people were killed during the conflict, only a few among that number were Hells Angels. That included Normand (Biff) Hamel, the last Hells Angel to be killed in the province of Quebec by rival gang members. Hamel was shot in Laval, on April 17, 2000, in the parking lot of a commercial building. The murder was later linked to the Bandidos, one of the criminal organizations the Hells Angels was at war with until the conflict ended in 2002. The Sûreté du Québec is asking anyone with information on the shooting to contact them on their tip line (Centrale de l’information criminelle) at 1-800-659-4264.  pcherry@postmedia.com twitter.com/PCHerryReporter Let's block ads!

Aquamation gains popularity as funeral home becomes 2nd in Quebec to dissolve the dead - CBC.ca

Friday, August 12, 2016

By the end of August, a chain of funeral homes in Abiti-Témiscamingue will become the second in Quebec to offer aquamation, after a home in Granby. "The ecological side of aquamation is its primary goal," said Patrick Blais, director of operation at La Résidence Funéraire de l'Abitibi-Témiscamingue. "[It's] to have little or no pollution when we aquamate the deceased." "We know that cremation pollutes a lot. Each cremation emits a lot of carbon dioxide and several other pollutants into the atmosphere, which aquamation wouldn't do [because] it uses warm water instead of fire to discard human remains," he said. 100-degree alkaline solution for 12 hours In May 2015, Le Sieur in Granby became the first Quebec funeral home to offer aquamation. Charles Arsenault, its funeral director, explained at the time that aquamation submerges the body in a mixture of 100 C water with an alkaline solution comprised of sodium and potassium for 10 to 12 hours. "It's essentially an accelerated version of what takes place during natural decomposition," he told CBC's Quebec AM. Like cremation, the end result is ash. But with aquamation all human tissue is dissolved except the bones. With cremation, 80 per cent of bones remain intact. Bones are later dried and pressed into a white powder to be returned to the family.  Is aquamation the new way to go? Cremation remains the preferred choice for Quebecers. ?Blais says 91 per cent of the peopl...
