Hells Angels logo appears on Thunder Bay building
'Hells Angels Ontario' appears near doorway of Simpson Street building
The Hells Angel logo has once again resurfaced in Thunder Bay.
'Hells Angels Ontario' recently appeared on a building at 636 and a half Simpson Street. The building is the same location that Thunder Bay Police conducted a raid at in October, 2014.
"It is disappointing, but I understand that's sometimes how things operate."
"Personally, I have never seen them out and about. I don't know if that's the change of laws that you can't wear your logo and patches, but the impact that they're having I'd say is lessening."
Bruins said although it's obvious there's a Hells Angels presence once again in the area, she said the impact of the group seems to be weakening.
"Neighbourhood kids don't know what Hells Angels mean. It's kind of a changing of the old guard. I'm hopeful that their presence continues not to be a...so far, so good it's been."
A spokesperson for Thunder Bay Police said it's significant that the logo currently visible on Simpson Street says 'Hells Angels Ontario' instead of 'Hells Angels Thunder Bay.'
The main difference is the local clubhouse is part of the Ontario chapter, meaning there are not enough members to create a full-fledged Thunder Bay chapter.
