Oh Canada: On the Front Lines of the Fight Against Global Organized Crime
Canadians are the nicest, gentlest people in the hemisphere, right? Don’t be fooled. Over the past couple of decades, the Great White North has been a hotbed of organized crime activity, especially in large cities such as Toronto, Montreal and Hamilton. Stephen Metelsky, a retired police intelligence sergeant and criminology professor at Mohawk College in Hamilton, Ontario, will discuss recent Mob history in Canada. He will highlight Project OTremens, a case that exposed a U.S.-Canada drug trafficking operation involving two New York Mafia families.
This program will be held in the Organized Crime Today Exhibit in a videoconference format.
