Wicked Cool! Contemporary Canadian Art with ties to the Mafia

Howdy!

According to this article, a guy named Frank Martorana was in business with Pierre-Antoine Tremblay who tried to sell some fake paintings to Loto-Quebec. Because of him Frank Martorana, a bunch of different police forces here in Canada started to investigate the Mafia for something like five years, and resulted in them arresting a gazillion and a half people on Thursday.

This might even be a better story than Victor Pellerin.

[update April 17: I got sent a letter, and was asked if I could change the Objective Personal Pronoun to Mr. Martorana's name. So I did. Although it might have been fun to go to court over this.]

[update April 23: There is a second cease and desist letter.]
