I appreciate your knowledge and post anti but whatever may have happened 10 or 20 years ago and the relationships that were in place then are surely not static.
Just because the siderno boys supposedly got along then and had to tolerate Vito doesn't mean they continued to do so.
That meeting in 2001 was in part a power grab to consolidate operations however the criminal landscape was different then both here, in italy and the Toronto. Think the ndrangheta expansion in the last 15 years alone
Some have suggested that Montreal was a formidable family and extremely powerful...then how can you explain that it took only 2 years for the police force put everyone beyind bars and less than two years for rivals to kill Nick, Nicolo, Agostino, Paolo and friends
