MONTREAL - Canadian officials say an alleged crime boss who is slated to be deported from the U.S. to Canada is not yet in this country.
Canada Border Services Agency spokesman Dominique McNeely wouldn't give an expected date of arrival for Salvatore Montagna.
He says Canadian officials are aware of the case and are in touch with their U.S. counterparts.
The FBI has called Montagna the acting boss of the Bonanno crime family, an allegation denied by his lawyer.
U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement says Montagna was taken into custody for ''civil violations'' related to a contempt-of-court charge.
Montagna's lawyer was quoted last week as saying his client was being kicked out only because authorities are frustrated they couldn't indict him for any crimes.
The 38-year-old owner of a steel business was born in Montreal, raised in Sicily and moved to the United States as a teenager.
