On the afternoon of July 13, 1966 a driver pinned a taxi back by parking in front of him at the corner of Oxford and Upper Lachine Road. He then ordered the driver Louis Maillet to scoot and then shot him dead with a rifle while he ran away and the hack's ride watched on.
The killer then returned to his car and waited for police. The weirdest part of this already-weird story is that the police reported it to be a case of mistaken identity. Not sure what the name of the shooter was but perhaps it'll surface eventually.
The shooter was, I believe, a worker at the Canadian Pacific who wanted to get revenge on his supervisor who he felt was harassing him.
You'll note that the store is still named Minto, which is strange because it's two blocks west of the street of that name sacrificed by the Decarie expressway, likely started its days there.
(By the way, if you like this true Montreal crime stuff, I'm giving a speech about it with Pro Will Straw at the Blue Met Festival, April 18. ((I think that's the date).)
