Welcome to the Outlaws Mc Canada website. The Outlaws are a brotherhood and not a criminal organization. We are a group of men united to ride, and have fun. We have families, jobs, and responsibilities just like everyone else and although the media like to portray us as being criminals, the truth is we share a common goal of enjoying life to the fullest.
In 2004 during “Project Retire”, a judge whose name we are not permitted to disclose, ruled that we are not a criminal organization. The following are quotes from the transcripts of the ruling:
“Much has been said about X’s evidence, and much of his testimony in reference to these counts is opinion. Much of it is, in the court’s view, without evidentiary foundation, which is illustrated by his language which connotes supposition, assumption and rumour. ”X” was not qualified as an expert in relation to those counts and the Outlaws, although it is true, he obviously was a police agent who had infiltrated the Outlaws. no other person allegedly being a qualified expert was produced by the crown with respect to the bearing that that type of evidence might have been upon these sections.
I have considered these relevant sections of the Code and even on the plain language of these sections, without the necessity of interpreting the language of these sections, which is a task in my view better left to a trial judge, I am not persuaded, however suspicious I am, that the activities of these individuals before the court, that the evidence adduced in all its forms demonstrates that the elements of these offences have been stablished to the point where reasonable rational inferences of guilt or findings of guilt could be drawn by the jury properly instructed on the law.
The totality of the admissible evidence on the counts is that while I am satisfied that criminal offences took place or existed between individual members or by themselves, it is also clear to this court that virtually all of the physical activity, if I can deem it that, or location of items leading to the counts before the court on the substantive matters took place away from the clubhouses and that secretive hidden exchanges took place, the only inference being that that type of evidence clearly indicates to the court that no other persons’ or members of the OUTLAWS would know of such activity except those carrying out the illegal activities.”
“There is no evidence that one chapter associated with other chapters in the pursuit of illegal activities, although it is clear that there can be no doubt individual members of each chapter dealt with members in other chapters, but on the evidence, they only dealt with specific members rather than the large number of members of each chapter.”
“I am not satisfied beyond a suspicion due to lifestyle and the fact that individual members commit crimes that I can make the quantum leap to find an association or benefit or direction for the alleged criminal organization.“
