Roughly 250 Hells Angels and 200 more associate bikers departed from the city of Saskatoon on Sunday, after the club’s 2012 Canada run.
Len Isnor, sergeant detective and program coordinator with the Ontario Provincial Police’s Biker Enforcement Unit said overall the run went smoothly.
“They we’re on there best behavior and there are no incidents to report,” said Isnor who was one of many out-of-province officers assisting the Saskatoon Police Service.
“We’re really happy with the way things went this weekend,” he said.
When asked if the strong police presence contributed to the incident-free weekend, he said, “Absolutely … that’s the way it works best—when all the police services work together—no one police force can take on organized crime.”
The Hells Angels seemed pleased with the run and while most of the members declined comment on the event, one member—drinking a coffee outside of the Saskatoon clubhouse said, “It was a good time.”
Another member in a group of Hells Angels at the Esso on Idylwyld Drive – when asked about the event – said, “Ask the cops who have been following us around all weekend.”
Some residents in Saskatoon were more fascinated with the group than afraid.
William Henderson, who was walking by the Hells Angels Clubhouse Thursday morning when the Angels were arriving said, “I think it’s pretty cool that they’re all getting together here, honestly.”
