In Montreal, QC Canada police arrested nine individuals with suspected ties to street gangs in connection with "five of 18 fires that occurred, mostly in Italian cafes, between Sept. 22 and Jan. 24" but remain at a loss to explain motivation as reported by Paul Cherry for The Montreal Gazette:  "Some theories that have emerged are that people associated with street gangs were hired to carry out the fires in an internal clash between two groups tied to the Montreal Mafia. Another is that people who have graduated beyond street gangs are using their old associates in a rivalry over drug trafficking turf with the Montreal Mafia."
