Sherbrooke’s City Council turned down an offer of sale from Quebec’s director of criminal and penal prosecution, the DPCP, for the old Hell’s Angels bunker on Wellington Street South during its Monday night meeting. Although the city has publicly expressed interest in seeing the buildings town down, the proposed $538,000 price tag was deemed excessive given that the estimated cost of demolition is another 100,000 on top of that.

The property has been in the possession of the provincial government, under the oversight of the DPCP since it was seized during “Operation SharQc” in the spring of 2009. In November of last year, Sherbrooke’s council approved a zoning change that limits the property and some of the surrounding forest to being a nature preserve, with the expectation that the existing structures will be destroyed.
