Walter Stadnick and Mom Boucher
This is somewhat of a blast from the past but I just wanted to set the record straight. Jerry Langton wrote an interesting book called Fallen Angel: The Unlikely Rise of Walter Stadnick. Who is Jerry Langton? Jerry is a Canadian who was the deputy editor for The Daily News in New York City. Jerry was born the same year I was in Hamilton, Ontario. He spent most of his adult life in Toronto and New York City. He is a Canadian crime novelist who focuses on the uprising of motorcycle gangs throughout Ontario. He has credibility.
Walter Stadnick was five foot four. To say he had small man syndrome was an understatement. Thus the title of Jerry Langton's book, The Unlikely Rise of Walter Stadnick. Stadnick was not from Quebec. He was an Anglophone from Hamilton. Stadnick became National President of the Canadian Hells Angels because he was friends with Mom Boucher.
Stadnick was an Ontario drug dealer tied to Gerald Ward. His real name is Wolodumir and was released from prison in January 2016. His connection to the Italian Mafia was though Hamilton, home of the Calabrians, rivals of the Rizzutos in Montreal. He became a member of the Hells Angels after sucking up to the guys responsible for the Lennoxville massacre just like Mommy Dearest and David Giles did.
Mom Boucher got his patch after getting out of jail for armed rape. Some rules don't apply to some members. Boucher was involved with the Death Riders betrayal which gave the Hells Angels control of the drug trade in Laval. Stadnick and Boucher were about selling drugs and murdering rivals. They were not about living the dream. They pimped it.
The book Biker Trials: Bringing Down the Hells Angels states that Boucher was a petty thief that would do break and enters. November 1975 he and a friend burst into a Butcher shop and robbed the 71 year old owner with a riffle and a butcher knife.
So Mommy dearest started off as a petty thief and a rapist and made it to the big leagues selling drugs in large quantities. Amazing what a little guy can accomplish with a gun and a knife. Too bad the knife was found in the backs of those he saw as a threat to his leadership.
Walter Stadnick and Mom Boucher are Out in Bad from the Real MC movement. Just sayin.
