This is perhaps what we are witnessing today: the start of a conflict spreading towards Mauricie. Wishing that wasn't the case, adds the journalist.

He is not surprised to see that members of the Hells Angels have a property in Hérouxville. The section of the club in Trois-Rivières is still very active, even in other regions such as Lanaudière and Saguenay.

This is the new way of doing things for the Hells since the end of the 2010s. The days of hyper-secure bunkers are over. Now they use junior clubs to rent commercial premises in industrial parks for example, he explains.
