GTA Health Angels Gambling Trial Dismissed Over Delays

The Supreme Court most recently announced that a major illegal gambling case against GTA Health Angels has been dropped. The case known as Project Hobart dates back to December 2019, when police arrested 28 people and intervened in a C$130 million illegal gambling scheme. But the trial is dismissed because it took so long to get through the court.

In 2019, police made numerous arrests and even found that illegal gambling networks were linked to GTA gangsters. And since then, one of the original police suspects has been killed and another has tried to take his life in Cabagetown. In addition, a public official stepped down from his post after being accused of corruption.

On Wednesday, Superior Court Judge Bruce Dunno announced that all charges against both charges had been dropped. Prosecutors shared that the charges were dismissed for unreasonable delay. Anil Kapoor spoke on behalf of The Crown, amid some complications surrounding the trial being created by the unprecedented situation. He also praised the OPP’s thorough investigation.

After the case was dismissed, attorney Craig Bottomley, who represents Hells Angel Craig (Truck) McIlquham, said Wednesday he was quite pleased with the results. Other full-time members also charged were Robert Barretta from London, who owns a strip club, and Eugenie Reada from King City.

According to estimates, the reasonable time to be tried is expected to take 41 months and 7 days, 11 months above the constitutional limit, which was decided by the 2016 Supreme Court ruling R. v. Jordan, and after a while, the case is dismissed because it is deemed to be presumed unreasonable.

Project Hobart became the subject of public attention in December 2019 when police discovered and suspended a complex illegal maritime gambling business run by Ontario Health Angels bikers. Police say they have earned more than C$131 million in revenue from the business, including websites Ultimate SB, Titan SB, PlaytoWinWB, Freevada SB and Players SB. Investigators have also determined that the biker also ran a game house in Mississauga.

Over the past two years, Ontario authorities have dealt with numerous illegal gambling center cases throughout the state. More recently, in February, Waterloo police found such a gamehouse in Kitchener and confiscated CA$36,000 in cash, poker chips and game consoles. At the scene, officers found 17 individuals who were actively gambling.
