Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - June 10, 1970, Lethbridge, Alberta Visiting Jiitiliplacu Of (losti JNostfa i" Sicily Democratic Party MLA laiia Connections -Wednesday, June 10, 1970 THE LETHBRIDGE HERALD 11 TORONTO (CP) A New Democratic Party member of the Ontario legislature is visit- ing Sicily this week in connec- tion willi Ms private investiga- tion of an alleged connection be- tween the Mafia and senior offi- cers of the Ontario Provincial Police. Dr. Morton Shulman (Toronto High Park) flew to (lie birth- place of the Mafia, or Cosa Kos- tra, Saturday to "pursue a lead" in his investigations, On- tario NDP Leader Donald MacDonald said Monday. Dr. Shulman, a self-made mil- lionaire and instigator of count- less personally-financed investi- gations of social and political is- sues in the province, caused an uproar with his latest bombsh- ell. He told a legislature commit- tee meeting Thursday that George Duke, a prominent Oak- ville, Ont., businessman, had personal contacts with Canadi- ans connected with the Mafia and with senior officers of the OPP. He said his statement to the committee comprised the "opening shot" of material he has been gathering with the aid of a firm of private detectives in an investigation of Mafia pen- etration into Ontario. Since then, Dr. Shulman has said nothing more about the charges publicly. Legislative immunity protects him against libel or slander suits in making ART DIETRICH DENTURE CLINIC Certified Dental Mechanic Metropolitan Bldg. 328-4095 his allegations in the house or in legislative committee. Attorney-dcneral A r t h u r Wishai't, who acknowledged that Mr. Duke's past criminal record in the United Slates is "not un- known" to the police or his de- partment, promised to investi- gate and report in about two weeks to the legislature com- mittee. Named by Dr. Shulman in his statement were: Clinton James Duke, (i5, president of Duke Lawn Equipment Lid. of Oak- ville, wiio lias denied Mafia connections and called Dr. Shul- man a "character assassin." Dr. Shulman said Mr. Duke was arrested in New York State in 1929 as the leader of a gang which stole in jewels in a raid on a private house party. Duke was sentenced to 30 years to life in prison and was deported to Canada in 1942. A. (Johnny Pops) Pa- palia, 45, of known as The has not commented publicly on Dr. Shulman's allegations. He was sentenced to two years in prison in Vancouver in 1949 on a narcotics charge and in 1961 to in months imprison- ment in Toronto for the beating of a local gambler. Sentence was commuted after 11 months so he could be extradited to the United States to stand trial on a narcotics charge. March 11, 1963, Mr. Papalia was sentenced in New York City to 10 years in prison for his part in a international narcotics smuggling operation. Released in January, 1968, he returned to Hamilton where he told an interviewer at the time: "I'm nothing now." (Danny) Gabriel Gas- barrini, an officer of several Hamilton construction linns, ho has denied any connection itli the Mafia and challenged Dr. Shulman to repeat his charges outside the legislature. Mr. Gasbarrini was given a seven-year prison sentence in Vancouver in 1949 on a narcot- ics charge, part of which was served at Kingston, Ont., where COMING SAL CONDUCTED BY HURLBURT AUCTION SERVICE LTD.
