wow. that is a sentence that i never thought i would write. first of all, canadians and bad things? come on. we dont DO bad things, do we? it seems that we do.

zach told me about this story a little while ago and i was really surprised. and since then, i have been hearing about it all over the place so i thought i would make a post about it. it turns out that the sports bar up here that is owned by a couple of canadians was patronized by this guy less than a year ago. the canadians said he was very friendly (i bet) and had invited them to stay at one of his hotels. i think that they were supposed to go a few days before he disappeared and began his run from the law. here is an article written in panama-guide.com.

By DON WINNER for Panama-Guide.com – Today I received information that the Royal Canadian Mounted Police are actively searching for a man named Michel Smith, who is suspected to be hiding out in Panama. On 22 April 2009 Canada’s Joint Regional Squads involved in Operation SharQc executed search warrants against the Hell’s Angels – and at that time 24 people escaped. An article about the raids says “Twenty-four members of the Hells Angels and relationships sought – Joint Regional squads involved in Operation SharQc are actively seeking 24 members of the Hells Angels and relationships who escaped the police strike last week (in April 2009). Recall that 129 people were arrested in connection with the operation during which the police conducted 158 searches. Restricted weapons, a certain quantity of drugs, vehicles and nearly a million in cash were seized. Operation SharQc aims to paralyze the criminal activities of the organization of the Hells Angels in Quebec, followed Operation Spring 2001 and aims to offenses committed from 1992 to 2009. Those arrested will face various charges, including conspiracy to murder generally, murder, drug trafficking and gangsterism.”
