As for some Hamilton history, the Calabrians are from Hamilton. Those were the guys firebombing funeral homes in Montreal when Vito Rizuto was in prison. With a little help from the Ontario Village Idiots. Mom Boucher supported Vito. The Ontario Nomads didn't. That why the Montreal charter capped the Ontario Nomads pres and vice pres before they were disbanded. The Violi brothers are Calabrian. The Musitano brothers are not so do the math.
Crime writer Jerry Langton is from Hamilton. So is Walter Stadnick.
