Following the death of Mafia boss Vito Rizzuto in 2013, a group of young criminals rose to fill the vacuum in power on his old turf. Targeting the old guard of Mafia and 'Ndrangheta, still led in many cases by men in their seventies and eighties and steeped in a highly structured, quasi-religious criminal tradition, the newcomers were nothing like their predecessors. They're part of Canada's most ethnically diverse generation, and their organisation was as inclusive as it is criminal. They shared an overwhelming sense of entitlement, with a self-assuredness that astonished their rivals but left them foolishly exposed to law enforcement, enemies and the force in global crime they were arrogant enough to think they could handle doing business with. The dominant and most violent force in the global narcotics trade through the 2000s, Mexico's Sinaloa and Los Zetas drug cartels, recognised the naivety of their eager new customers up north and invited themselves to Canada to take advantage.
