Random thought: I wonder if the Gambinos are at all connected to anyone in Canada? I mean, once the Ruzzutos and the Bonnanos split, I wonder if the Gambinos made any inroads into Montreal and Toronto?
I don't mean that I think they're pulling the strings, but simply making stronger connections with groups in Canada, especially the Ndrangheta.
I think I remember reading that someone from the Gambinos was at some Canadia mafia meeting between Quebec and Ontario in the early 2000's when Vito Rizzuto was still in power.... wonder what the specific connections are and if they've strengthened since the Rizzutos fell off.
Good question, the Rizzutos always had ties to the Gambinos.
