FLQ/Mafia/Liberal connections?

Gagliano has 'no time' for talk about his past

In 1972, then-premier Robert Bourassa called a public inquiry into organized crime in Quebec, in part because of concerns raised at the time over the involvement of members of the Cotroni Mafia family in the provincial Liberal leadership campaign of Pierre Laporte, who was later murdered by the FLQ.

Police eventually discovered, and La Presse reported, that [Alfonso Gagliano]'s bookkeeping business handled accounts for Cuntrera's businesses while Gagliano was an MP.
