The organized crime landscape in Montreal has been in flux after the bloody Montreal mafia war and the death of Rizzuto crime family boss Vito Rizzuto.
The once powerful Rizzuto family has been weakened by the loss of many key figures and now faces new challenges as the family transitions to a new group of leaders. A new Montreal mafia leadership table has allegedly been formed to take control of the family made up of a younger generation of mobsters. This new leadership table allegedly includes new emerging leader Stefano Sollecito along with Rocco Sollecito, Nicola Spagnolo, Liborio Cuntrera, Vito Salvaggio and Leonardo Rizzuto.
The transition to this new administration has come with continued unrest and lingering problems as organized crime in Montreal continues to change. Recent fire bombings have led to rumors of possible problems within the Rizzuto family along with remaining tensions from the Toronto based Ndrangheta clans believed to have backed the rival faction in the war against Rizzuto family leaders. According to recent reports from police sources the mafia in Montreal and its new administration now have emerging troubles with the rebuilding Hells Angels to deal with. Biker gangs have long been an integral part of the complicated Montreal underworld.
According to a police sources the Hells Angels leadership has been dissatisfied with the Sollecito leadership leading to meetings between the two sides in recent days. The Hells Angels are seemingly reorganizing according to recent law enforcement reports and could once again become a force within the organized crime scene in Montreal. Former boss Vito Rizzuto had an uncanny knack for being able to settle disputes and cultivate strong relationships among the various crime groups including the cities biker gangs. It is yet to be seen if this new group of leaders will be able to maintain the current alliances between the Montreal mob and these other organizations and avoid more bloodshed in a all out power struggle.
