ESN employee's ties to local motorcycle club a concern for school district

An educational assistant at ESN has grabbed the attention of the Francophone North-East School District by having ties to a local motorcycle club with alleged ties to the Hell's Angels.

Francophone North-East's Annie LeBlanc-Levesque tells the Acadie-Nouvelle that the district is aware the employee is a member of the Darksiders North Shore club and that its taking the matter seriously.

The employee was subject of a review and LeBlanc says the district is assessing the situation.

Earlier this week Bathurst's mayor had said he would work with neighbouring municipalities to limit the club's activities in the region because of its ties to what he calls a dangerous bike club "renowned for criminal activity".
