The latest casualty in the Mafia war in Montreal, QB Canada is Joe DiMaulo who was found murdered last night outside a suburban residence as reported by CBC News.
DiMaulo was a long-time member of the Rizzuto clan whose reputed boss Vito Rizzuto was released from a U.S. prison just last month.
While Vito was doing time 'Ndrangheta or Calabrian Mafia clans from New York City and Ontario launched a war against his Sicilian clan which knocked out son Nick Jr. in 2009 and father Nicolo in 2010. Former Bonanno boss Salvatore "Sal the Ironworker" Montagna joined the Calabrian clans in their insurrection against the Rizzuto clan, and he was whacked in November 2011. Several suspected Rizzuto loyalists, including Raynald Desjardins, were charged last December for their alleged roles in the Montagna slaying. Desjardins is the brother-in-law of DiMaulo, and himself was the target of an attempted hit in September 2011.
Vito Rizzuto apparently has become obsessed with security upon his return to Montreal, and reportedly has acquired a $100,000 armored vehicle in which to jaunt about town.
The pissing match among rival mob clans largely is for control over the cocaine trade in Montreal and NYC.
I thought it was about some NY Yankees Hall of Famers.
I thought the DOJ had declared they were all vanquished.
The Godfather is alive and well and living in Canada. At least until the next round of recriminations. The police must love the way the mobs do the dirty work for them. Rizzuto would never get the death penalty for any crime in Canada, but I’d be surprised if he survives the next two years.
“He’s gone, and we couldn’t do nothing about it.”
“Whaddya mean? Whaddya mean?”
