Notorious Ontario Cover
Notorious Ontario is a rogue’s gallery of villains and miscreants, narrating the troubled lives and lawless misdeeds of criminals from Lake Superior and Muskoka to the depths of Depression-era Toronto. Ontario has had its share of colourful lawbreakers to bedevil police:
• Joseph, Mohawk, Louis and Antoine Moses terrorized communities on the remote, wild north shore of Lake Superior, stealing and murdering for more than a decade in the late 1800s
• The most successful bank robbers in American history were the Texas-born Newton Brothers, and in 1922, they brought their criminal skills to Canada—blowing up bank vaults and running circles around the RCMP and OPP
• In 1890, American scoundrel Arthur Hoyt Day, tired of his wife, lured her to the Canadian side of Niagara Falls and pushed her over a cliff into the Niagara Gorge
