What exactly are you looking for? I've posted a number of charts in other threads, mostly taken from the other forum.

Mostly Chicago and the smaller families. I know a lot of people don't like charts, but I do. I like it broken down all the way from the boss to known associates. Loved the picture tree of a mafia family since the first day I saw it,GF II.

In the thread below, I posted listings of all the LCN families in the U.S., although they are not in an organized chart form like you saw in The Godfather II.

viewtopic.php?t=40078

However, if you go to the link below and click on the gallery section on the left, and then click on "maps, charts, and posters," you can see the charts of various families from the past which inspired that chart in The Godfather movie.

Is there anyone running the Montreal underworld or Mafia now? Who was left after the busts of the Rizzutos? In the Italian camp where does the power now lie,calabrian or sicilian?

The Rizzuto family (Cattolica Eraclea clan) of the Sicilian Mafia is far from being out of business in Montreal. The Commisso family (Sidona clan) of the 'Ndrangheta continues to be active in Toronto. As far as Canada goes, overall the Sicilians remain the most powerful.

Did they lose ground to the asians,bikers,or that irish group that ran the docks? What are the dominate groups in the underworld there?

It remains to be seen how much of a longterm effect the Colisee bust had on the Rizzuto organization and their place in the Montreal underworld. But I would still consider them the top organized crime group in the city, with the Hells Angels close behind. The Irish West End Gang is still active there of course. The Russians, Colombians, and Asians (Chinese, Vietnamese) also have a presence in the city.

Who took over the Rizzuto family? And is that chart right with Nick as boss and Vito under him? I always thought Vito took command and his pops just sat back and collected some money and handed out advise sort of a consigliere. Do you got anything on the Irish Westend Gang? I've always heard mention of them but never heard anything about them. Who's runnin the Angels now? They still work together up there? Italians,westend,angels?

Both Nick and Vito could be considered the Boss but Vito was more hands on with the day to day operations so you could consider him the Boss while Nick was more of a Consigliere. A number of top Rizzuto guys go on trial in like a month or so. It hasn't been established who is running things in the organization right now. The Italians, Hells Angels, Irish, Colombians, and Russians still form "the Consortium," which establishes drug prices and territories in the city. As reporter Antonio Nicaso explained it -

"Once the Sicilian mob in Canada had consolidated their power, they set up a mechanism called "the Consortium." It was like an governing body for the underworld. It formalized alliances among the various criminal organizations and settled their disputes according to Nicaso. "The Consortium is made up of the Mafia bosses in Canada, as well as the president of the Hells Angels, Russian mob leaders, the head of the West End mob, which is an Irish gang, and the Colombian cartels," Nicaso explained. "They work out who has what territories for drug distribution, and they fix the price of the drugs. Sometimes they arbitrate disputes between rival gangs."


Although not everything on the site is correct, some good info can be found about Montreal's crime groups at the link below -

Not much other than what is in the link above. In a nutshell, it is a loosely organized group of Irish criminals involved in drug trafficking and other crimes. They are part of the "Consortium" in Montreal, along with the Italian Mafia, Hells Angels, Russians, and Colombians, that fix prices and divide drug territories.

Like basically everywhere else, the Colombians are involved in only drug trafficking and money laundering in Canada.

Who's the most powerful of this consortium? I imagine the Italians took a hit when Vito went down. How strong are the Irish, Russian and Columbians? Do they really have any power or is it still the Mafia andHell's Angels in charge?

The Rizzuto organization is considered by Canadian law enforcement to be the most well entrenched and powerful crime group in Montreal. The arrests from Operation Colisee were a big blow but not enough to destroy the organization. After the Italians, the Hells Angels would be second strongest. The Irish would probably be third. After that would come the Russians, Colombians, Asians, etc.
