One of the better articles that summarize the situation in Montreal of the past several years up until now.

According to TVA Nouvelles -- and it's an exclusive! -- Vito Rizzuto has retained his crown. A lot of problems with the story (mostly factual errors), but I post items regardless of whether I agree with them.

Vito Rizzuto is still the godfather
TVA Nouvelles
First published May 30, 2013 at 6:11 pm

Only eight months after his release from prison , Vito Rizzuto has indeed resumed its activities . TVA Nouvelles has learned that it is again considered the godfather Montreal .

Vito Rizzuto has spent the last six years in prison in Colorado, United States. Meanwhile, his opponents were eliminated one by one all employees including close family like his brother, Paolo Renda, his son, Nick Jr., and without that nobody rises to replicate.

"The Sicilians who were part of his clan had not abdicated. By cons, you could say they played the rather low "profile says specialist police investigations, Richard Dupuis.

In October 2010, his father, Nicolo, was killed at his home in front of his wife and daughter. The day of the funeral, we found a box on the front of the church.

It is an old custom that dates back to the origins of the Mafia. It was a message sent to Vito Rizzuto: "Are you ready to abdicate, or do you want us to continue the massacre?"

According to sources TVA Nouvelles, the package was sent from Woodbridge, Ontario. It is in this affluent suburb of Toronto, where the Board of Directors' Ndrangheta, the Calabrian mafia headquarters.

"It was two successful hair that Rizzuto was successful in 80: take control by eliminating the Calabrian clan," says Mr. Dupuis.

The response of the sponsor came shortly after his release from prison. In August, four senior members of street gangs are shot, including Chénier, Chief Red.

Since his return to Canada in October, nearly a dozen of his enemies have been eliminated, the Calabrian Joe Di Maulo, one of the most influential criminals Montreal.

To Ontario

More in Ontario does not dispute the authority of Rizzuto said Rob Lamberti, a journalist who covers the mafia Ontario for 30 years. According to him, he is back in power.

Vito Rizzuto has achieved the impossible with his personal aura, but his absence showed a lack of notes from the Sicilian clan. If Calabrian bow today is perhaps because they chose to wait before it disappears to regain control of Montreal.

Vito Rizzuto imposes its law

Daniel Renaud
La Presse
Published June 3 2013 5:00 am|Updated 6:50 pm

A year ago, nobody thought that Vito Rizzuto return to Montreal. Eight months after his return, his clan is once again the most powerful in the city. If he could succeed in this tour de force, it is because the organized crime situation was relatively calm during his reign and his arbiter has earned him the respect of the criminal underworld. The largest organization of the Mafia, who does not like that the headlamps are trained on her, vraisemblement needed it to end its bloodiest episode of the last 40 years in Montreal.

"If Vito returns to Montreal, it will pass," had told La Presse a police officer a year ago, almost to the day. Today, it is clear that the police, like most people, was royally wrong about the chances of returning the sponsor, after nine years in the Canadian and U.S. prisons.

"The police and criminals have made the same mistake: they never thought would Vito," said another, more recently, demonstrating the evolution of the situation.

Since January, La Presse has ceased to attach the qualifier ousted after the word to describe godfather Vito Rizzuto. If it has been successful tour de force to regain control of the city in a few months, because of the respect that he dedicated to the criminal underworld, and since he became president of Board of Directors held in Montreal somewhere in the 90s crime. At the time he headed the Mafia with an iron fist in a velvet glove, everything was relatively quiet. The settling of accounts in all their forms were part of the decor, but were further apart.

But after his arrest in January 2004, and more particularly his extradition to the United States two years later, "the blood flowed," as he himself had prophesied the RCMP officers who 'escort.

In fact, in just nine years between his arrest on 19 January 2004 and today, at least 40 murders, 18 attempted murders, kidnappings and eight two disappearances related to Italian organized crime occurred in and around Montreal, as a compilation by La Presse.

This is the bloodiest in the history of the Montreal Mafia episode, including the fall of Violi, there are more than 30 years.

Return

After his release in October, Vito Rizzuto was arrested in Toronto, to measure its support. Obviously, the great organization of the Mafia, who does not like that the headlamps are trained on it, either by violence or commissions of inquiry, needed him to end the bloodshed in Montreal.

Upon his return, the blood flowed more, but calm has returned for several weeks, a sign that clan has taken things in hand and others have had to rally, by choice or not. Police pressure that followed the arrest of two men after the murder of Gaëtan Gosselin, right arm kingpin Raynald Desjardins, probably slowed the enthusiasm to some, but sources have told us that Vito Rizzuto has launched an appeal for calm late March.

Since it would direct its affairs, Montreal or the Dominican Republic, and had even begun peace talks with his most bitter enemies. He even try to expand its influence in Sicily if we rely on an article in the Italian newspaper La Repubblica that he described as "the undisputed leader of the Canadian Cosa Nostra."

In Montreal, Vito Rizzuto is seen regularly on the golf course or in a restaurant downtown in the evening. Its outputs are discrete and this will be the case as his honor will not be washed, as the murders of members of his own family will not be avenged. It will take however long it takes.

We should not be surprised if, once this is done, at age 67, he left the center stage to the next generation.

Peace talks underway

Press has learned that discussions aimed at establishing peace took place about three weeks ago between representatives of the sponsor Vito Rizzuto and his former lieutenant became enemy, the guy Raynald Desjardins.

"There have been negotiations and now the clans are at the stage of reflection. Let's see if it will work, but it is certain that goes closer to peace than to war, "a source told us last week.

In recent months, contracts had been put on the head of family clans Desjardins and Giuseppe De Vito, another leader at war with the Sicilians. They lived holed or had left the area. However, The Press has learned that these individuals were told, in recent weeks, they had nothing to fear and that they could return to the city.

During the appearance of the 26 people arrested last week following the dismantling of a network of drug traffickers, the accused were defended by lawyers who represented enemy clans in recent years - another relaxing currently prevailing in the mafia.

According to the main theory of the police, Desjardins De Vito and other chieftains as Salvatore Montagna Arcuri and brothers have formed an alliance to lead the Mafia after the overthrow of the Sicilians in 2010. But since the release of Vito Rizzuto, last October, several members of their clans were murdered. Desjardins including lost his brother, the influential Joe Di Maulo, and his friend and confidant Gaetan Gosselin. One who held this role for Giuseppe De Vito Vincenzo Scuderi was killed in January.

Quote:
A year after his return home after six years in a maximum security prison in Colorado, Vito Rizzuto has indeed taken the reins of the Montreal Mafia , a feat that few experts would have thought possible .

According to Pierre de Champlain, Montreal Mafia expert , since his return to the Montreal area , Vito Rizzuto was able to assert his authority and bring renewed "relative peace between the various factions " of organized crime.

This " return to power " does not, however, done without the bloodshed . After the murder of his son , Nick Jr., in December 2009 and his father Nicolo , less than a year later , Vito and its allies probably wanted to avenge their own.

Although the Rizzuto clan was weakened when the sponsor returned to Montreal , "there fringes that are loyal during the time of his absence ," said M. de Champlain.

With the help of his faithful allies , the sponsor has seen its list of enemies to thin while many heads have rolled in the months that followed his potential return.

This is particularly the case of Joseph Di Maulo , which would have betrayed the Rizzuto clan , when Vito was in prison. He was assassinated in Blainville, only a month after the return of the head of the Montreal Mafia .

Antonio Nicaso , another expert from the underworld , for its part, believes that " Rizzuto clan took control of the street, but since the Charbonneau commission revealed links between the mafia and politicians, it will not be easy to rebuild the system and all the links he had created . "

Nicaso also believes that the head of the Sicilian clan rather thirst for revenge and does not necessarily intend to reestablish the links . He believes that Rizzuto other enemies on his list.

Much longer?

Still, experts say it is difficult to predict how long the reign of Vito Rizzuto will last, since it is already 67 years old .

"Is that one can say that the Rizzuto clan will rise from the ashes ? That I 'm not sure as the son of Vito was murdered , "said Pierre de Champlain.

Antonio Nicaso does not believe the Calabrian , who are very powerful in Ontario who are rivals of the Sicilians , necessarily want to take control of Montreal , when Vito Rizzuto will hand .

"It depends on the ability of Rizzuto ensure the transfer of power ," he has just started.

The side of the Police Department of the City of Montreal , nobody could answer questions from QMI Agency during the weekend.

Wow, so Rizzuto had Montagna whacked? Quite a different story compared to what we have been hearing.

It doesn't seem like Rizzuto ordering the hit on Montagna adds up. If it were Rizzuto's men that killed Montagna, then it would make sense. However, it was Desjardins and his guys that killed Montagna. It's pretty clear that Desjardins was on the opposing side of the Rizzuto clan and it was in retaliation for an attempted hit on Desjardins.... Don't get me wrong, I don't think Rizzuto was upset to see Montagna get whacked, but in my opinion it wasn't on his orders.

yeah...seems strange that Rizzuto had Montagna killed.

Then again: Montagna did try to muscle in and maybe (maybe) replace Vito Rizzuto's role in the city.

That suspicion could have been enough to have someone like Rizzuto (a real planner) ok that hit. Regardless of Montagna's affiliations to NY and oversea.

I don't know if I would necessarily believe the New York Post, let alone a cellmate at a SuperMax prison. I don't see Rizzuto blabbing something about wanting to be boss of the world to someone in the can. But what do I know, never met the guy, never will.

Eaxctly, plus the BS report last year once released that said Rizzuto was meeting with New York "underworld sources." I find it hard to believe. One big conspiracy theory I will believe though is that De Vito was murdered inside prison....Notice how prison authorities and police are keeping this reaaaaaal quiet. No press releases, nothing.

Yea I agree on De Vito.

I also don't think Rizzuto ordered a hit on Montagna, too risky from a U.S. prison!!

I definitely don't believe the inmate either, no way Rizzuto is that dumb. You don't make it that long at the top by being that dumb.

It suprises me how fast those murder trials start in Italy as opposed to Canada. It's not even a year since Fernandez was killed while the trial of the murder of Montagna, which is now three years ago, has not even started.

Wow no wonder he ended up dead. Spurning two calls to meet with Rizzuto? You're begging to be clipped.

Sonny some of these countries don't play! Canada/USA both are bad about delaying and bullshitting. It wouldn't surprise me if something else comes up with Desjardins and delays it even further.

Ask Tony Magi. There is a reason he is riding around in armored vehicles and wearing bullet proof vests. He at least knows who was behind it.

Wouldn't suprise me in the slightest. However, it's only three months away and delays are usually announced far ahead of time.

Lamberti always writes decent articles. His articles usually don't offer big revelations, but he always seems to be very accurate.

Reporters Éric Thibault and Félix Séguin have written an article, currently behind a Le Journal de Montréal paywall, suggesting that Francesco Arcadi and two others--all three imprisoned--may fight, upon their release, to claim what they believe to be their rightful place at the top of the Montreal Mafia hierarchy.

If most of us have guessed that Lorenzo Giordano and Francesco Del Balso also want a piece of the pie if not the whole pie, I think we've taken a fairly good guess.

That was the first time I've read he has cancer. Sounds like things will keep going out there.

Not even the establishment of a mafia roundtable has led to a total cessation of hostilities.

A MOLOTOV COCKTAIL WAS THROWN INTO A "HOT SPOT" OF THE MAFIA
DANIEL RENAUD
LA PRESSE

Italian coffee considered by the police and the criminal underworld as a "hot spot" was the target of a Molotov cocktail in the night from Tuesday to Laval.

According to our information, the bar-restaurant Romcafé, located on Boulevard des Laurentides Vimont in the neighborhood, would be attended by individuals related to or close to the new leadership of the Montreal Mafia table set up in the death case Natural former Godfather, Vito Rizzuto, in December 2013.

Moreover, according to our sources, Vito Rizzuto would have gone to this place almost daily between his return to Montreal after his release from a US prison in October 2012, and his death.

A lieutenant of the Mafia, Tonino Callocchia, murdered in a bistro of Rivière-des-Prairies in fall 2014, have also been seen on numerous occasions in Romcafé during the same period.

"It's a message or a warning, and it is clear that it is people who are at this place, it is their place," believes one of our sources.

NO SUSPECT
For now, the police do not know where the attack is coming.

In recent months, the informants told us of tensions or disagreements that exist within the Mafia, but it is too early to conclude that they are the cause of the incident.

During his time at the bar-restaurant Romcafé this morning, La Presse noted the presence of certain individuals at the crestfallen who seemed nervous.

It was about 4 pm when suspects or have (are) broken the window of the establishment with a tool and threw a Molotov cocktail inside.

A fire broke out early, but the flames were quickly extinguished, causing damage valued at less than $ 10,000.

"Investigators Arson Laval police went to the scene and interviewed witnesses. The scene was appraised, photos and samples were taken by police forensic identification. The owner was met and, for the moment, there are no suspects and the mobile remains unknown, "says Sergeant Frederick John of the Laval police.

In recent months, a dozen Molotov cocktails were thrown at cafes, restaurants, shops or cars, Montreal and the North Shore. It is not clear if some of these incidents are connected.

Last year, criminals fires were started in two restaurants in Montreal known to be frequented by people linked to the Mafia, La Cantina and Cavalli.
