Yesterday’s funeral of mafia aristo Salvatore ‘Sal the Ironworker’ Montagna was notable for the thinness of the attendance — in contrast to the hundreds who turned up to say farewell to Nicolo Rizzuto Sr in November last year. Montagna was shot last Thursday as he left a house on Ile Vaudry. Mortally wounded, leapt into the river to escape his attacker.

 

 

It seems that Montagna, onetime acting boss of the Bonanno family crime business in New York, was manoeuvring to become head of the Rizzuto empire in Montreal.

    I note with interest, Charles – or shpuld that be Carlo? – your detailed information about and insights into the funerals of mafioso, which have long been a feature of the GFG, and I make a note to myself to treat you with a little more respect and cirumspection….One never know, do one?
