The Maple Syrup Mafia
A History of Organized Crime In Canada
It’s no secret that organized crime is everywhere. From Japan and Italy to Israel and Mexico, there seems to be no place on earth where an organized crime family doesn’t exist. You may think that one of the few safe places left is friendly, welcoming Canada, which many believe is so safe that people there always leave their doors unlocked. Think again.
This book delves into the often ignored but nevertheless bloody world of Canadian mobs. You’ll meet the Rizzutos, a powerful family with connections to the legendary Five Families of the American Mafia. Then there’s the Cotroni family formed by Vic “the Egg” Cotroni, an ex-wrestler with ties to the Ndrangheta. You’ll also learn about their connections to the blood-soaked Quebec Biker War, where the Hell’s Angels and the Rock Machine battled for 17 years and claimed 150 lives. And just wait until you get to Toronto!
Prepare to be shocked by the true story of organized crime in Canada. It proves that there is truth to the expression, “it’s the quiet ones you have to watch.”
