Verduci Exposed Mafia’s ‘Canadian Cell’

Verduci alerted Italy to the
Ndrangheta's presence in
Canada.
According to Adrian Humphrey's National Post story, Carmine Verduci, 56, the hit man shot several times outside Regina Sports Café near Toronto, has the distinction of being the man who "accidentally alerted" Italian police to the existence of a “Canadian cell” of the Ndrangheta.
An investigation showed he was the ’Ndrangheta’s transatlantic messenger: He “had the task of travelling between Italy and Canada, acting as a carrier of news between the Italian group and the Canadians,” prosecutors said. 
Following him, wiretapping his cellphone and tracing emails, authorities linked at least 40 people who were either Canadian citizens or current or former residents of Canada.
