HALIFAX — RCMP say they will be on hand for what's expected to be a large gathering of outlaw biker gangs in Nova Scotia's Annapolis Valley on Saturday.

The Mounties tweeted Friday to advise motorists they will be conducting road safety checkpoints in the Wilmot, N.S., area.

Cpl. Jennifer Clarke, a spokeswoman for the force, said the biker gathering is being hosted by the Darksiders club which has a chapter in the area.

"We don't believe there's any risk to public safety, but we do feel we should warn the public that we will be in the area doing increased traffic enforcement," said Clarke.

Glen Assoun to receive initial compensation payment for wrongful murder conviction HALIFAX — A Halifax man will receive preliminary compensation from the federal and provincial governments after spending almost 17 years in prison as the result of a wrongful conviction for the murder of his former girlfriend. 

Nova Scotia RCMP say they will be monitoring a party Saturday night to celebrate the official opening of a new Hells Angels' chapter in Musquodoboit Harbour, N.S., marking the outlaw biker gang's return to the region. Police expect up to 150 bikers , including Hells Angels, to be in the area.

Streatch said he's asked police to keep a close eye on the area and increase spot checks. RCMP say they are monitoring for criminal behaviour. There was a party held in June at this Gate Keepers clubhouse in Musquodoboit Harbour welcoming the Hells Angels back to Nova Scotia .

Clarke couldn't say how many bikers would be attending the event but added police believe members of the Hells Angels, Bacchus, and the Red Devils — a Hells Angels affiliate group — would be in attendance. She wouldn't say what police know about the meeting.

"The information that we have is they are meeting, the RCMP is obviously aware of that and is taking steps to mitigate that the best way we can," Clarke said.

She said it's not unusual for police to keep an eye on biker gang gatherings: "Our intention here is not to interfere with these clubs. Our intention here is to be present."

The Red Devils, considered the top so-called puppet club of the Hell's Angels, have chapters in Moncton, N.B., and Halifax.

In addition to the Darksiders, who also have a chapter in Dartmouth, Nova Scotia has a series of other outlaw gangs including Sedition clubs in Fall River and Weymouth, and Highlanders clubs in Antigonish, Pictou County, and Cape Breton.

Dorian damage worse than first thought in Nova Scotia's famed Annapolis Valley

Dorian damage worse than first thought in Nova Scotia's famed Annapolis Valley HALIFAX — Closer inspections of the ripening apple crop in Nova Scotia's fertile Annapolis Valley have revealed the damage caused by post-tropical storm Dorian was worse than first thought. "We've lost a major part of our crop here, and some will be downgraded as well," said Larry Lutz, an apple grower and president of the Nova Scotia Fruit Growers' Association. Last weekend, Dorian's hurricane-force winds snapped thousands of trees and pulled  tonnes of fruit to the ground across the valley.

The only group of one percenters — the top tier of outlaw bikers — in Nova Scotia is the Bacchus Motorcycle Club, although the Hells Angels have been attempting to re-establish a presence in the Maritimes for nearly three years. The two organizations appear to have reached a detente.

Bacchus was declared a criminal organization in a July 2018 ruling by the Nova Scotia Supreme Court. The ruling was seen as putting a damper on the gang's activities because it established tougher sentencing for any crimes carried out to benefit the club.
