Agreed. It is odd how quiet it has been in Toronto, the Commisso clan has been quiet lately after their loss.

It looks like the Rizzuto clan is mounting two offences. One in Quebec & the other is in Ontario and Hamilton is affected for sure. The Rizzuto/Violi war has expanded.
Rizzuto's have formed alliances with several other criminal organizations. The Toronto clans will need more hired help to stop them.


In Quebec Hells Angels are running the show now.

I think the Haitians are almost as powerful as the bikers in Montreal.

The mafia Salvatore Scoppa killed in Laval

Posted on 04 May 2019 at 23:31 | Updated May 05, 2019 at 7:53 am


The Press
Mafia Salvatore Scoppa, brother of former Montreal Mafia leader Andrew Scoppa, was killed Saturday night in Laval.

49-year-old Salvatore Scoppa was attending a family party at the Sheraton Hotel off Highway 15, when at around 10 pm he was shot with at least two firearm projectiles in his head. at the thorax, in the lobby of the hotel.

When help arrived, the victim no longer had any vital signs. He was taken to the hospital where his death was noticed shortly thereafter.

Two suspects have fled aboard a dark SUV on the highway. At the time of writing, no one had been arrested.

In addition to the family party, a computer conference was held at the hotel at the time of the crime. Several people had to be treated for nervous shock.

A targeted man

Salvatore Scoppa escaped an attempted murder a little over two years ago, in February 2017, in Terrebonne. An individual, Frederick Silva, opened fire in his direction, wounding him in the arm, while Scoppa was leaving a restaurant and boarding his vehicle. Silva was arrested by the police last February and is currently charged with this attempted murder.

During the Magot-Mastiff investigation, in which the Sûreté du Québec had decapitated Montreal organized crime in November 2015, the investigators had captured a conversation in the office of the ex-criminal lawyer Loris Cavaliere during which there was talk of Salvatore Scoppa and other Mafiosos.

During the discussion between Stefano Sollecito, Leonardo Rizzuto and Gregory Woolley, a gang leader, there was talk of eliminating Scoppa and "putting a bullet in his chest" in order to "maintain control of the territory" and " keep the city, "but the younger son of the late godfather Vito Rizzuto had objected.

On more than one occasion, Salvatore Scoppa was notified by the police that his life was threatened. At one point, he even fled to Mexico.

In January 2017, Salvatore Scoppa's home was searched by the Crime Against the Person investigators of the Sûreté du Québec regarding an investigation into the disappearance since 2013 of two individuals linked to drug trafficking, Daniel Pierre and Mohamed Qazi Ali.

In 2016, three close to the Rizzuto clan, Lorenzo Giordano, Rocco Sollecito and Vincenzo Spagnolo, were killed and police sources told La Presse that they suspected Salvatore Scoppa could be involved in at least one of these crimes.

However, since the situation stabilized in Montreal, and the storm is brewing more on the Ontario side, the name of Salvatore Scoppa was less on the lips of the Montreal mafia community. But in the mafia, revenge is exerted just when you least expect it.

The Scoppa have long been considered to be at the head of one of the most influential clans in the Montreal mafia. In 2016, police regarded Salvatore's brother Andrew as the acting leader of the Montreal Mafia. Andrew was arrested and charged with possession of a hundred kilograms of cocaine in 2017, but was granted a stay of proceedings.



The murder of Salvatore Scoppa could provoke a stir in the Montreal mafia.

Since this is an organized crime murder, the investigation was conducted by the Crime Against the Person Division of the Sûreté du Québec.

The murder of Salvatore Scoppa could provoke a stir in the Montreal mafia.

Drug trafficking and other crimes

In recent years, police have testified in court about alleged involvement of Salvatore Scoppa in drug trafficking and violent crime.

In September 2015, during the investigation of the release of a student suspected of having stored heroin on behalf of Salvatore Scoppa's organization, an SPVM investigator, Sébastien Létourneau had described the latter of the as follows: "Salvatore Scoppa is a leader of known networks in the distribution of heroin and cocaine, and a member of the Italian mafia of Montreal, a high placed, a hood of the Italian mafia, a very well known and very criminalized who oversees heroin sales and distribution networks, "testified the investigator.

In December 2016, at the time of the trial of a gang leader, an investigator of the SPVM, Érick Lacoursière, had spoken of Scoppa while, during his testimony, it was about the murder of Marco Campellone, 24, committed in September 2015 , to Montreal. The murder of the latter, however, has not been elucidated to date and no one has been charged.

"One source tells us that this gang leader is doing contracts and collecting for organized crime, especially for Salvatore Scoppa. These are basically contracts of murder, attempted murder, kidnapping, arson, home invasion and robbery, "said the witness Lacoursière.

Since this is an organized crime murder, the investigation into the murder of Salvatore Scoppa has been entrusted to the Crime Against the Person Division of the Sûreté du Québec.

The Irish were once pretty big in Montral, but at this point I think they are little to none there anymore agreed?

The Irish are still a factor in dowtown montreal and the South western part of Montreal.
Sure we don’t ear alot of those groups compared to the 90s.

Many groups are present in Montreal, but they are mosly cells. You have the vietnamese that are most known for the production of marijuana. You also have the turks that deal alot of heroin.

One group that have become stronger each years, are the arabs groups. You can see that they deal mainly with the italians and the haitians. They probably deal eith other groups, like the bikers.

Also, Montreal has Russian groups, that the leaders are from Toronto. In the prostituion rings in Montreal, the news mostly talk about young haitians that get caught because they have one or two girls in there grips. But its known, that the russians are pretty big in prostitution also.

Yes the Russians are very strong. They tried to take the drug buisness from the Vancouver Hells Angels in the 90s, but didn’t win the war against them. The news didnt talk alot about this war, because the main focus was about the biker war in Quebec.

I wonder how the italian war will affect Hamilton in the future. Because the city is probably a mess right now.
Do you think the Hells Angels will benefit from the italian war in Hamilton?

The bikers will benefit. But our bikers here compared to Montreal are not very powerful they are very unorganized. Too many of them are drug addicts, hard to be organized when you have your nose in the sugar bowl. As far as the city being a mess nothing new lol for such a big city we kind of suck.

There are so many Italians in Canada, and many young generations of associates and wannabes waiting for their chance, getting more serious ect, all these guys getting killed will be replaced. One of these days peace is inevitable, either through a new leader to bring balance or through all the main players in the old vendettas dying off. It’s a normal thing in the mob, like Clemenza says, every 10 years or so this stuff happens to get rid of the bad blood and it’s true.

What's the Russian mob in Toronto and Montreal like?

In Antwerp there was a time people were going off about the "Russian mob" but not a single one of them were actually Slavic Russian lol.
The most prevalent were a few Georgian-Jewish families: Melikhov, Biniasjvili, etc... were names that came up often. There were also some groups connected to Mogilevich that set up shop in Antwerp; Boris Nayfeld for instance was involved in heroin trafficking in Antwerp for some time together with another well-known Russian underworld figure named Rachmiel Brandwain. A bit later there were also Chechen, Georgian, Kurdish and Armenian groups from the former USSR active. Chechens were prevalent in organized jewel and gold robbery as well as extortion, as were the Georgians and Armenians (who were active in match-fixing as well). The Georgians settled some internal feuds in Antwerp as well: David Ozmanov, one of Zakhar Kalashov's guys and member of a Yezidi-Kurdish network from Georgia, was stabbed by a few Georgian gangsters - Kalichava, Uglava and Gurchiani - connected to Merab Dzhangveladze.

True Moscone65.

There is alot of italians in the province of Ontario and Quebec. But the difference between now and the 80s or 90s, there are more big players in the game.

In Quebec, the Hells Angels are stronger than before and have more connections than in the 90s.
The haitian gangs are more organized. You have stronger leaders that work with Woolley or are independant but still strong.

In Ontario, i guess the Hells Angels also got stronger. You have aslo many orher groups like the russians, the indians etc.
Also you got the jamaicans that have got more organized. And the somalians are just ready to shot, real cowboys loll

The Russian mob in Toronto from what I know consists of a lot of Jews in the north east of the city. They are a small cell and stick mainly to their areas. They usually do their own thing and don’t interfere with Italians or bikers, and if they do, then you may find the odd Russian working for Italian groups like seen in the Violi bust.

That’s true, and while the Italians face a bit more competition in the drug game, their other areas of income such as extortion, involvement in union and construction scams ect are almost untouched by competitors. As long as the Italians keep their international connections to bring in coke, they will be the top dogs. I would say the HA are number two in Canada as a whole and they have indeed been getting more organized and are almost like a pan-white, bike riding mafia lol

Yes I also think the italians are number one. Ecen in Quebec. The biker did get a boost, but I think, when the war will be finish, the winning team will restablished themself at the top of the food chain.

The Jews are very quiet and they all stick together and help each other. They control alot of big corporations here. Once dates a Jew from Woodbridge her father found out I was half Portuguese and half Italian he made her drop me like a bad habit lol.

Aren't there Lebanese active in Montreal as well?
In my country they're pretty low-key, but they're active in mainly the black market diamond trade as well as weapon trafficking. They got quite a few connections with the more infamous Georgian-Jewish families in this (weirdly enough, seeing the Lebanese here mostly consist of Shi'ite clan from the outskirts of Beirut and the Bekaa).
They're huge in Germany though.
