Construction Boss Touts Friendship with Rizzuto Sr


RCMP surveillance video shown during the Charbonneau Commission last September allegedly shows Nick Rizzuto Sr., (R) exchanging tens of thousands of dollars with Nicolo Milioto (L), then the head of Mivela Construction Inc. and Rocco Sollecito. Milioto told the commission today that he had no regrets over his friendship with Rizzuto.

Nicolo Rizzuto (February 18, 1924 – November 10, 2010), also known as Nick Rizzuto, was the crime boss of the Sicilian faction of the Italian Mafia in Montreal who later pushed out the Calabrian Cotroni family. Nick's son Vito Rizzuto is allegedly the godfather of the Sicilian Mafia in Canada.

On November 10, 2010, Nicolo Rizzuto was killed at his residence in the Cartierville borough of Montreal when a single bullet from a sniper's rifle punched through two layers of glass in the rear patio doors of his Montreal mansion. His death, at the time, was believed to be the final blow against the Rizzuto crime Family -- until Vito returned to town seeking revenge.
