The two arson attacks, which targeted two businesses owned by the woman Carmelo Cannistraro, Caterina Miceli, would serve to send messages to the mafioso and his relatives.

The Streakz Coiffure, the Vimont district of Laval, and the branch of the same name, situated Robert-Bourassa Boulevard, also in Laval, have been the target of flames in recent weeks.

According to our information, sports betting, controlled by Carmelo Cannistraro during Operation Colosseum, is at the heart of the actions of the incendiaries.

It seems that it is not to get control of the sports betting book that both hairdressing salons have been set on fire.

Stefano Sollecito, the Mafia's interim sponsor, who is responsible for the sports betting book , is very ill and would not pay his debts.

It would therefore be for the payment of debts that we attacked the businesses of Caterina Miceli, the wife of Carmelo Cannistraro.
