Quebec police have busted more than 100 individuals for their alleged roles in a drug conspiracy which used a trucking firm to bring cocaine into Canada from the United States, and the arrested include those with suspected ties to the Italian Mafia, the Irish West End Gang and Hells Angels motorcycle club as reported by The Canadian Press:
Police said the organization, which had been under investigation for about six months, managed to rake in an estimated $50 million in that short time. * * * The group allegedly used a middleman to co-operate with Mexican drug cartels and appeared to have the capacity to import and distribute about 75 kilograms of cocaine per week.
Among the six accused ringleaders are Shane Maloney and Larry Amero as reported by CBC.
It's funny because when Canadians refer to the Mexican drug cartel problem on the southern border they're actually talking about the United States.
