Who's Fire Bombing Montreal's Italian Cafes?

Following a series of eighteen fire bomb attacks primarily against Italian cafes in the north end of Montreal, QC Canada since last September, police now are openly considering the possibility of a turf war brewing between rival Mafia families as reported by Canwest News Service:
Montreal police deputy Chief Jacques Robinette said on Tuesday that's one hypothesis on which police are working. He said it involves a possible conflict between rival Mafia clans based in Montreal, with one group made up of members of Sicilian origin and the other of Calabrian background. But he also said investigators haven't discounted the possibility that a group of Mafiosi from Toronto is exerting pressure on the Montreal Mob when it appears to be experiencing a leadership void. Vito Rizzuto, 63, the man reputed to be the leader of the Montreal Mafia for decades, is serving a 12-year sentence in the U.S. for a racketeering conviction involving the 1981 murders of three mobsters in New York.
