| The nine Dubois brothers - Raymond, Jean-Guy, Normand, Claude, René, Roland, Jean-Paul, Maurice, and Adrien - grew up in the tough working class Montreal neighborhood of Saint-Henri and would earn a reputation as the most vicious, ruthless outfit anywhere in the country.
The organization rose to the top of the city's underworld in the 1960s, vigorously participating in loansharking, drug trafficking, extortion, and prostitution. Those who refused to fall in line were threatened, battered and, when necessary, eliminated. The Devils Disciples motorcycle gang and the McSween Gang were left helpless as the organization took over their territories.
According to police, between 1968 and 1982, the Dubois Gang was responsible for 63 murders, including twelve who were going to testify against the group and two stool pigeons. Their bloodiest carnage occured on February 14, 1975 (Saint Valentine's day) when Dubois Gang hitmen burst into the Hotel Lapiniere, a popular McSween hangout, and opened fire. Four men were killed and several others were wounded.
Numerous informers in the early 1980s practically decimated the Clan. Several of the brothers and their top subordinates received lengthy prison sentences. Very little has been written about the group since and there is little proof that the gang is still active. Interestingly, Peter Paradis, a biker turned informant, recently mentioned the "Dubois mob" in his book Nasty Business, which might mean the gang is still around after all.
