(Newser) – A Canadian contract killer confessed yesterday to murdering 27 people during Quebec's biker wars, reports the Toronto Star. Gerald Gallant turned police informant after receiving a life sentence in 2001 for yet another murder. The biker, 58, received no extra time for his confession and will be eligible for parole in 25 years. Police acting on Gallant's tips arrested 11 people across Quebec last week. He was paid up to $20,000 for the killings, which included bystanders near his targets.
