A Saskatchewan ambulance attendant was fired from his job after his employer found out he was a member of the Hells Angels motorcycle gang.

Jeff Boos was an emergency medical technician with the Regina Qu’appelle Regional Health Authority. When his employer learned of his membership in the Angels, it approached Deputy Police Chief Clive Weighill of the Regina Police Service. Deputy Chief Weighill gave the employer information about outlaw motorcycle gangs, including the Angels.

Deputy Chief Weighill expressed concern about Boos and his affiliation with the Angels. Among those concerns was that members of the police service might require emergency treatment at the hands of a member of a group whose respect for the law and its enforcers is notoriously low.
