Second Canadian Sentenced to Life in Prison in U.S. for Pot Smuggling

The second of two Canadian men convicted of running a multimillion-dollar marijuana-trafficking operation has been sentenced to life in prison.
The U.S. Attorney’s Office says 42-year-old Gaetan “Gates” Dinelle of Cornwall, Ont., was sentenced in federal court in Syracuse for running the operation that smuggled about 10 tonnes of pot across the U.S. border in northern New York.
Prosecutors say Dinelle and 45-year-old Michael “Mickey” Woods, also of Cornwall, were the leaders of a marijuana-smuggling ring that operated from 2005 to 2008 and made more than $10 million in profits in a single year.
