Sylvain says he received about $300,000 for working with the Biker Enforcement Unit

Sylvain says he received about $300,000 for working with the Biker Enforcement Unit in Project Husky, a two-year probe that ended in 2006 and arrested six members, 21 of their associates and shut down an alleged $2.3-million drug distribution network that linked Ontario, Quebec and Alberta. Prison terms ranged from four months to 6 1/2 years for a wide range of offences. Last March, a court ordered the Heron St. clubhouse forfeited to the Crown. "This is a very significant forfeiture," Det.-Insp. Dan Redmond, BEU commander said then in a press release. Thunder Bay Police Chief Robert Herman added the clubhouse had "long been a thorn in our side. Its forfeiture is a good news story for our community and demonstrates our commitment to working with our partners to stop the unlawful activities of outlaw motorcycle gangs." The man who made it happen, Sylvain, has little left after buying vehicles for his work as a driver and says his cover has been blown. Everyone in the small undisclosed town he's living in knows he worked for the police and are too scared to hire him. He turned down the program's last offer to relocate him, covering expenses and $29 a day for six months. "You think I made something? I made (nothing)," he says. He wants a better deal Sylvain was urged to go to police by an ex-girlfriend after he got himself jammed with the Italian mob in Montreal. The rig driver admits to bringing in large loads of cocaine in tractor-trailer shipments from Miami, including one of 200 kilos in the 1990s, sins that police are aware of, he says. He says he was wrongly accused of taking four kilos by his underworld bosses and was beaten savagely. "The first beating I had was just practice," he says.
Sylvain was later targeted with death and while in New Jersey hiding from the mob, he turned to the U.S. Drug Enforcement Administration, who in turn set up a meeting with the RCMP in Miami. What Sylvain wants now since he's too well known in Canada is to move to the U.S., hopefully to work for American law enforcement. But the only recent job offer he got from police was another attempt at the Hells in Canada, who now know what he looks like. "You can change your name as much as you want to, but you can never change my face," Sylvain says. In Project Husky, the truck driver provided what police dubbed the "Trojan Horse," a tractor-trailer used on the gang's runs and advertised a motorcycle shop. Since then, Sylvain has been on the move.
His first relocation was a bug-infested fishermen's shed "and they moved me to another place, and then another place. At that time, I could not work or nothing because they were changing the name and the SIN number. "How can you go to work if you don't have a SIN number? At the last relocation, the RCMP wanted me to work for them somewhere in the country. When I got there, it was to work the Hells Angels again. I cannot work the Hells Angels in the same country," Sylvain says.
