Good news.

It seems Mtl houses quite a few nefarious people in the criminal world.

Unfortunately, there will be 90+ people to take their places. What a never ending battle.

They updated a couple of the sites. Now it says it's only 69 people that were arrested.

Police launched a sweeping crackdown on organized crime in Montreal on Wednesday, arresting 69 people, including a Canada Border Services Agency employee and about 10 airport employees.

Police issued 90 arrest warrants and said about 1,000 charges in all are expected to be laid. Earlier RCMP reports said more than 1,350 charges would be laid.

The yahoo site says there were 90 arrest warrants. But 69 people were actualy arrested.

The CBC & CTV articles were updated. Thought I should point out the mistake. So it's only 69 people who were arrested.
