Montreal's underworld has gotten rich — very rich — from sneaking cocaine into the city by car, by air, by boat, and inside people, packages and shipping containers.
In this episode we go back to the 1980s, when cocaine really took off in Montreal.
Montreal's main criminal gangs — the Rizzuto-led Montreal Mafia, the Hells Angels biker gang and the West End gang — worked together to bring immense amounts of cocaine into the city. It's a partnership that lasted for years.
