"This murder is very significant on the scale of organized crime in Quebec," says TVA News reporter Félix Séguin.
Silva, 39, would be very well placed in the world of drug and cocaine importers in Canada. "He has had in the past exceptional links with the Colombian cartels that send their drugs through Mexican cartels," adds Félix Séguin.
The assassination of Ivan Silva looks like a settling of scores. The Longueuil Agglomeration Police Service (SPAL) transferred the investigation to the Sûreté du Québec (SQ).
It is the investigators of the Crimes Against the Person Division who are trying to shed light on the murder of Silva.
