Antimafia you are correct, here is another example in relation to locales and their quoting Gratteri:

Nicola Gratteri, the chief anti-Mafia prosecutor in Calabria, said the ‘Ndrangheta is the only Mafia that is present on all continents.

"I think the foreign country where the ‘Ndrangheta is the most present is in Canada," he said.

"Mostly in Ontario, especially Toronto, and also in Montreal," Gratteri added. "We have found in our research there are at least nine ‘Ndrangheta localis just in Toronto. Which means there are hundreds of members, as each locali has at least 51 members."

the 50 members rule is applied in calabria only, in north italy and abroad usually locali are smaller
gratteri probably misunderstood a wiretaps where a member in canada said 'nine of us' meaning not the locali numbers but the members
obviously there is no way there are 9 locali with hundreds members, maybe 1 or 2 at most

In 2015 they were on the brink of a mob war, according to wiretaps recorded in Italy. Leader Vincenzo Crupi talked extensively about the drug trade and a power struggle with the Mafia in Canada. It seems Crupi was right.

There will be many theories, the Musitano's seemed to have made many of enemies over the years.

And how exactly do you know that brothers Pat, Angelo, and Dominic Jr., as well as sister Carmelina, are Pino Avignone's first cousins?

This is how Dominic Musitano Sr.'s newspaper obituary reads near the beginning: "Dear father and father-in-law of Pino and Anna Avignone...." Link to my Evernote item is below, and the item has a PDF of the newspaper obituary.

Dominic Musitano Sr.'s newspaper obituary

Usually, Avignone has been variously described in books and newspaper articles as the adopted brother of Pat, Angelo, Dominic Jr., and Carmelina or as a stepbrother. Stephen Schneider, who wrote Iced: The Story of Organized Crime in Canada, went with the available conflicting information that was out there and decided that Avignone was Dominic Sr.'s nephew. Why does the obituary list Avignone as a surviving family member before the four aforementioned sons and daughter of Dominic Sr. and Carmelina Alampi? The obituary does not make reference to Pino as a stepson.

Looking up surnames of 'ndrangheta members in Italy isn't going to help you figure out a puzzle that only people close to the Musitanos here in Ontario know the answer to; I certainly have no idea what the true relationship is between Avignone and the Musitanos.


Here is another, if you google Project Scopa Hamilton, you will get as an image one of those police charts titled Project Scopa. They show Avignone as being the "stepbrother" of Pat Musitano.

Yup. Exactly.

https://pbs.twimg.com/media/DUQTGTnX4AYtHAg.jpg

Barbara Brown, who at one time was the justice reporter for the Hamilton Spectator, referred to Pat Musitano as "a close friend of Avignone's" in her October 28, 1999 article about Avignone.

I also recall an article in which Dominic Musitano Sr. was said to have five children (not four, as many of us assume) -- presumably, Avignone would be the first child that Musitano Sr. sired.

THE ASSASSINATION OF A MAFIEUX CHIEF OF ONTARIO SPONSORED BY THE FAMILIES OF COSA NOSTRA?
May 4, 2019 , Written by Xav Posted in #Bonanno, #Buffalo , #Rizzuto

Pat Musitano
Pat Musitano
On April 25, Pat "Fat Pat" Musitano, leader of a mafia faction affiliated with the Ndranghetta based in Hamilton, Ontario, was murdered in front of his lawyer's office. Given the current tensions and especially in the Ontario region, or three mafia factions, Luppino, Papalia and Musitano are fighting over this territory, one could think that a war between faction is currently held for a single purpose , take power. But because of recent arrests in the Buffalo family, including Giuseppe Violi and his brother Domenico who went into exile in Hamilton after the murder of their father Paolo, the question everyone faces is "The families of Cosa Nostra can they be behind this assassination? ". The first, who would have refused an enthronement in the Bonanno family, is currently serving a sixteen-year prison sentence for trafficking in cocaine and fentanyl following Operation 'Otremens'. The second, freshly named Buffalo family's Underboss, was arrested in a joint operation by the FBI and the RCMP, the Canadian police, with charges that eventually led to the recording by a government informant. Soldier of the Bonanno family, Vincent Morena. The most likely scenario would be that families Luppino and Papalia, rivals of the Musitano family and affiliated with families of the Cosa Nostra, would be the cause of this assassination. A theory more than likely, but the order to perform Pat Musitano would have come from New York? of the Bonanno family? who has always had a pied-à-terre in Canada or the Buffalo family? Back to back In September 2017, Vincent Morena, who had decided to collaborate with the authorities after an arrest for cocaine trafficking, was inducted into the Bonanno family. That day, on Canadian territory, the Captain Damiano Zummo unintentionally initiated a government informant into the ranks of the Bonanno family. The ceremony itself was rather anecdotal, far from the rites of enthronement desired and desired by this criminal organization. But having become a Cosa Nostra Soldier, Vincent Morena had an easy access to other members that was much easier, the gangsters revealing themselves more easily to a member of their organization, than to a simple Associate. These recordings were of capital importance to the American and Canadian authorities, who quickly realized that Buffalo's family, whom she thought was dead, was still active and worse, had grown stronger. Quickly, Vincent Morena asked Domenico Violi about the current situation of the Musitano family or a few months ago, Angelo Musitano had been shot in front of his home. Domenico Violi certified that the murder of Angelo Musitano was a "message for Pat", to show him that now, his days were numbered. He added at the same time, "before Christmas," Pat Musitano would be "gone," implied, to be murdered. These recordings proved to the authorities that the Bonanno family had a rather special relationship with the family of Buffalo, now run by Joseph Todaro Jr. So even though he fiercely defends himself to be the Godfather of a Cosa Nostra family , it is clear that the Buffalo family has always had very close ties with the Luppino family and it is possible that it would have helped the latter to plant the last nails in the coffin of the Musitano family. The Bonanno family, meanwhile, has always had historic ties to Canada, especially with the Rizzuto family, or its former Godfather, Vito Rizzuto was an inductee member of the Bonanno. Since, his influence on this territory has certainly diminished, but an enthronement of a member of the Bonanno family on Canadian soil could demonstrate later that the Bonanno want to contribute to the reconstruction of some business, supporting this time members of factions affiliated with Ndrangheta. always had historical ties with Canada, especially with the Rizzuto family, or his former Godfather, Vito Rizzuto was an inductee member of the Bonanno.

I agree with you but there’s still A LOT of people that will disagree with that statement. I think it’s crazy how many conflicting statements there are about the buffalo mob. Some people say they are calling shots in this war and others say that they don’t exist. I’d love to know what’s really going on but I’m sure we won’t know any time soon.

It's pretty obvious Buffalo still is connected to Buffalo the Violi tapes made that very clear. As far as the Bonanno family running Montreal that one is not happening Montreal is all over the place the Bonanno family would not even know who to talk to anymore.

The bonnanos contacts/people in Montreal are the cotroni faction and arcuri bros. I don’t know how much influence people in New York have in this, other than they are closely monitoring the situation. However, the aforementioned people are still “with” the Bonannos

Yep not sure pal the Cotroni faction is so small they got swallowed up by the Rizzutos along time ago. When Frank took over which was along time ago they were nothing. They came to Toronto to try to take over some rackets and got the boot so fast they don't know what hit them.

The cotroni extended family is big, they still have a good group of them left and they are closely allied with the violis. The remaining violis in Montreal are with them/bonnanos, while the violis in Hamilton are Buffalo/Luppino. Obviously if they try shit in Toronto they get their shots but they’re base is still in Montreal.

From what I know nyc has some influence in Ontario and Montreal (most Bonanno and Gambino) but not enough to really call any shots.

Hamilton mobster Pasquale (Pat) Musitano has been released from hospital after being shot multiple times in an attempt on his life in Mississauga nearly two weeks ago.
The 51-year-old was hit as many as four times, including to the head, around 7 a.m. on April 25 outside 120 Matheson Blvd. E., where he had just left a meeting with his lawyer Joseph Irving. The lawyer was acting for Musitano in connection with a paving and construction company allegedly involved in a multimillion-dollar scam.
While Musitano was initially rushed to hospital with life-threatening injuries, Peel police said last week the 51-year-old man had improved and was expected to survive.
The Spectator has learned he was released from hospital on Friday, May 3.
Six things to know about the shooting of Hamilton mobster Pat Musitano

Just like when his younger brother Angelo Musitano was gunned down in his Waterdown driveway May 2, 2017 , and when Pat Musitano's own St. Clair Boulevard home was sprayed with bullets weeks later, the family is not co-operating with police.
It remains unclear what Musitano's recovery will look like and whether this shooting will spur more mafia violence amid a resurgence of mob shootings in the Hamilton area. Also unclear is what power he still holds in the criminal underworld and who remains loyal to the traditional organized crime family.
Mob, Murder and the Hamilton Connection

Since the shooting, there have been rumours and speculation swirling about what Musitano was up to in the days before his shooting, and what actually happened in the Mississauga parking lot.
The Spectator has learned through police sources that he was not wearing a bulletproof vest when he was shot (as has been rumoured).
At the shooting scene, Musitano's black GMC Denali was seen parked just outside the door of the law office, with a flat tire and pool of blood beside it. Sources tell the Spectator the vehicle was armoured. The vehicle was towed for forensic examination.
And while Pat Musitano may have been taking more precautions since his brother's murder, he was not in hiding, as some have suggested, including in wiretap conversations recorded as part of the prosecution against Domenico (Dom) Violi and Giuseppe (Joey) Violi. Musitano was living in Hamilton, but whether he will continue to after being shot is not clear.
Here's how a wiretap recorded a conversation talking about getting rid of Pat Musitano

That Pat Musitano was shot was not surprising to mafia watchers, given the ongoing violence and conversations captured on the Violi wiretaps where getting rid of Musitano was said to be impending. Since Angelo Musitano's death, there have been several other mafia-related murders and crimes in Hamilton, including the shooting deaths of Albert Iavarone and Cece Luppino.
Last week, police revealed that a home invasion in April 2018 was actually an attempted murder at the home of mobster Natale Luppino.
All three killed were seen as less powerful men whose murders were, perhaps, meant to send a message to the more commanding criminals in their families.
Angelo Musitano had reportedly found God and was raising a young family. Albert Iavarone was the younger brother of Tony Iavarone. And Cece Luppino, son of mobster Rocco Luppino, had, at least in 2015, rejected being "made."
No one has been charged in the attempt on Pat Musitano's life or in the murders of Iavarone and Luppino. However, three face first degree murder charges in the shooting death of Angelo Musitano and another botched mob hit in Vaughan that saw innocent bystander Mila Barberi killed.
Jabril Abdalla, who is accused of taking part in the sophisticated surveillance leading up to the murders, is the only man behind bars. He's seeking bail.
His co-accused, Michael Cudmore of Hamilton (the alleged gunman) and Daniel Tomassetti of Ancaster, fled to Mexico and are wanted on international warrants.
The attempt on Pat Musitano's life came a day after the funeral for his uncle Tony Musitano, a former Hamilton mobster who said he retired and died of natural causes at 72. The Spectator and other media has reported Pat was not seen at the funeral, however, a police source says it's now believed he was there.

The article Ciment posted two posts back was a lot more informative than the one to which I've linked below.
