Montreal mobster Salvatore Scoppa assassinated

May 5, 2019 By TheBoss 

Salvatore Scoppa an influential member of the Montreal mafia was shot to death at the Sheraton Laval Hotel according to reports.

It’s uncertain as to how many times he was shot or where but multiple sources reported that he was killed. The police confirmed that shots were fired in the area but could not confirm any other reports at this time. Scoppa had been targeted before by rival mobsters but somehow survived although it seems his luck has finally run out. Salvatore and his brother Andrew Scoppa controlled a powerful Calabrian mob clan and had emerged as key players in the Mafia in Montreal during the bloody Montreal mafia war which dismantled the once powerful Rizzuto crime family.  This seems like a clear sign that the unrest within the Montreal underworld continues and that more bloodshed may be on the way.  Whoever is behind this attack could also target Andrew who is known to be the more influential of the two.

  It’s clear that when it comes to the mafia both in Montreal and elsewhere things have changed drastically since the death of Vito Rizzuto. The Scoppa’s like many others had ties to Vito and the former Rizzuto hierarchy but had fallen out of favor with the families new leaders including alleged boss Stefano Sollecito according to a secretly recorded conversation during Project Magot. In one meeting between Sollecito, Leonardo Rizzuto, and street gang leader Gregory Woolley they discussed the Scoppa brothers and how they were no longer trusted even though they once had ties to Vito.

Could Sollecito and what remains of the Rizzuto family be striking back at their enemies in an effort to re-establish control? Things have been relatively quiet in Montreal over the last several months but the death of Scoppa could spur another round of violence. Perhaps reports of the Rizzuto families demise have been a bit premature? A deadly mafia-linked attack in Hamilton that included Montrealers left some wondering if there were possible ties to Montreal mob and in particular the Rizzuto clan. The murder of Salvatore Scoppa is sure to bring with it more theories of a Rizzuto-Sollecito family resurgence.

At this point, anything seems possible and it’s hard to keep track of who has been left standing and who is hitting who and for what reasons. Further updates will follow as the investigation into the Salvatore Scoppa shooting gets underway.

I swear, Canada organized crime is so chaotic. So many alliances and broken alliances. So hard to tell what exactly is going on. 15 years from now when all this is figured out, Adrian Humphreys or Antonio Nicaso are going to be able to write at least 3 books.

No Canada does not. The RICO laws and the CCE laws are a complete and utter scam. I’m all for punishing someone for a crime but to punish someone for something someone else does and using rats that committed more heinous crimes as the way to bring someone down is just wrong. It’s why you are starting to see the Feds lose a few cases here and there these days. Most legitimate people feel the use of rats is wrong. That is ultimately what RICO and CCE was designed for. Threaten HUGE sentences to get people to flip. It’s disgusting.

If they stick to local protection rackets, construction, unions, white collar scams etc, they would be fine. International cocaine trafficking is just a cut-throat world.

Correct me if i’m wrong.

I dont think Canada is equiped to have a system like RICO.
Because, the prison system is different than is the US. I dont know how it is in Europe.

But in Canada, we dont have private prisons. Everytime, a person go to jail or prison, its the population that must pay for the prisoner.
So Canada is not a populous country with a population of 37 millions hab. with many of them being under the age of 18 or already retired.

So Canada dont have the tools tomgive many times, 100 years to a criminal.

True def compared to the USA. The same goes for Holland, but in the underworld it can be brutal because both countries have a huge drug economy.

Nice. Love Montreal very fun city I have family there. I don't like Quebec that much though even though my favourite hockey team was the Nordiques.

Re: Montreal mobster Salvatore Scoppa assassinated - 05/05/19 06:16 PM

Yep as far as jobs Ontario is great especially if you are educated. But I will tell you the housing market is ridiculous if you don't have half a mill you cant even get a bloody townhome in the greater Toronto area.

Re: Montreal mobster Salvatore Scoppa assassinated - 05/05/19 06:22 PM

And that’s being generous, most suburban property is upwards of a mil, unless you are in somewhere like rexdale or out in the sticks like Tottenham or Whitby stoufville

Yeah i saw that. The price of the houses are crazy.
A house in the suburb of Montreal, you will find the same house three time the price in the region of Toronto.

Yep I bought my home here in Hamilton Mountain in 2011 it is now more then doubled in price.

The Netherlands is definitely a peaceful place, but its underworld is arguably one of the more murderous ones in Western Europe. It's alsof a remarkably "rich" underworld. A ton of different groups set up shop in the Netherlands.

What's going on with Holland and the red light district I heard they are trying to stop it from being such a tourist spot. Is that true?
Posted By: streetbossliborio

Re: Montreal mobster Salvatore Scoppa assassinated - 05/05/19 06:57 PM

Fair point jshov. Maybe not Rico then. But they need something as that level of murder crazy. I don’t care about a lot of money based crime but murder is something else. And the casual way they popping people is too much. The amount of families ripped apart isn’t on

Not as far as I know. I do think they will enforce more control though. Right now a lot of tourists - often young guys - are drunkenly strolling down that district puking and urinating in the streets.

Yep I can see that. My next vacation will probably be Holland or Belgium.

Re: Montreal mobster Salvatore Scoppa assassinated - 05/05/19 07:21 PM

If it's a decent red light district you're looking for, the one in Amsterdam still is the most "luscious" as far as I know.
As for Belgium, the one in Brussels is dirty as hell: tons of Albanian girls getting pimped against their will by lots of Albanian pimps and loads of Moroccan hoodlums hanging around. Id stay away from that one.
The Antwerp one is pretty tourist-y. There's a famous dance café smack in the middle of the red light district lol. You can have a good laugh when you take a stroll through that district on an evening. Stay out of some of the bars in the sidestreet of the district, unless you like to have 5 bucks ripped from you by illegal Nigerian prostitutes.
The one in Ghent is small, but clean.

Don't ask me how I know all this lol.
Then again, I guess you're not taking a trip to Belgium or Holland solely for the red light districts lol

I agree 100% but I feel like a good amount of the killings that are happening up in Canada have a personal motive as well. When someone kills your father, brother cousin or whatever it’s going to take a lot more then a sit down to settle that problem.

Is anyone able to definitively confirm that Salvatore Scoppa had the nickname Mental? Any chance his nickname was Menthol?

This is the reason I ask:

Lol when you hear that the yearly turnover of the Dutch synthetic drug business is about 18,9 billion euros, you can see where that's coming from. And people are wondering where some of those Dutch Travellers get all of those luxury cars from lol

Re: Montreal mobster Salvatore Scoppa assassinated - 05/06/19 08:54 PM

Not only is the Netherlands the largest drug producer in Europe, it is also the most important transfer point for the global trade in cannabis, cocaine and heroin.

Weed is exported from the Netherlands to every corner of the world. An estimated half of all cocaine in Europe enters via the port of Rotterdam, where eleven million containers arrive annually, of which only fifty thousand are checked.

Coke that finds its way to Russia, Asia, the Middle East and Australia is redistributed in the Netherlands. Moroccan and Afghan hashish spreads through Europe via the Netherlands. Heroin supply lines from the East branch in the Netherlands to the rest of the continent.

i read that half of european cocaine was seized in belgium last year and in spain the year before

Re: Montreal mobster Salvatore Scoppa assassinated - 05/06/19 09:58 PM

Yeah in Antwerp they seized an amazing 50 tonnes last year in Rotterdam 19, probably because in Rotterdam we had some big cases against corrupt custom officers it has become a bit more difficult, so the guys moved to Antwerp. However most of the cocaine still goes to Holland via Belgium.
