Can someone correct me if I've read that one locale is made up of at least 30-40 members?

Best part in all of this blood and war is our inability to pinpoint one central figure within the GTA who could be the main culprit.

Also, the trail of blood has 99% been within Montreal

The Italian prosecutors seem to be well informed compared to the Canadian RCMP.It was the Italian authorities that informed the RCMP that there were 9 locale in Toronto. Back then most medias & authorities reported there were 3 or 4. Now it seems they have grown to 14 in Canada. It would be interesting to know where the remaining 5 are located. Maybe they established some locale in Montreal ?

Can someone explain to me how so many locales can exist in one area? As I understand it, a 'ndrine is basically a family, this family can have multiple cells or crews operating in different parts of the world, if there are other 'ndrine cells operating in the same area, they form a locale together, does that sound about right? If so, how can there be 14 locales in the GTA? That's like an infestation.
