When do you think this fragmentation started? It seems to me that during the Cotroni era the Montreal Mafia, and in effect Quebec, all centered around this group known as the Montreal decina. It seems that all these smaller groups developed during the Rizzuto era somewhere in the 90s or 2000s. Even though I don't believe in the declaration of independence in '99 there is a clear pattern that things did change in terms of decentralization. The very root of this must have started in the 70s when one group splintered in two and never fully blended again.
