Whitey Bulger Timeline in Canada Prior to going on the run in 1995, Bulger put millions of dollars in safety-deposit boxes in Toronto Ontario and Montreal Quebec and assumed a new identity.
Whitey Bulger has a benign, Irish face, but somehow it is always clear he is not approachable. There is something firm and flat about the eyes, which look like marbles when he is angry. Whitey has kept a Cadillac or Jaguar -- the kind of luxury car he has always prized, going back to the projects when he not only had the wheels few others could afford but a car that sported the big fins and shiny chrome of the era, they were days in the early 1980s.
FBI Most Wanted Snowbirds “Whitey” Bulger And Catherine Greig Reported Using a Luxury Motor Home to Travel From State to State With Their Two Dogs Now In Canada. I received a phone call on 3/19/2010 from a woman who owns a RV Park in the Lexington South Carolina area who only just recently saw an article about FBI’s Most Wanted James “Whitey” Bulger and claims that Bulger and his female sidekick Catherine Greig along with their two small dogs had stayed at her RV park in 2007 and 2008. This woman in the Lexington South Carolina area who owns the RV Park near Lake Mary went into explicit details describing James “Whitey” Bulger as far as his height, weight, heavy North East accent and what she called “deadly cold eyes” as he watched everything she did when in his company.
Bulger always went on the road a lot in the 80's and 90's, sources said, travel being his favorite form of recreation, often with his longtime companion, Theresa Stanley (prior to Catherine Greig). Indeed, Bulger's last public encounter was an unexpected one at Logan Airport. As always, it had a Whitey twist. Minutes before Bulger and Stanley were going to board a flight to Montreal Quebec in 1987, airport security examining luggage realized Bulger's carry-on bag contained a brick-sized wad of cash. The guard thumbed through the $100 bills, totaling an estimated $100,000. Bulger angrily ignored questions about the money and, when the guard said she was notifying State Police, he took off
Before Irish mob boss James (Whitey) Bulger went into hiding in 1995, the ruthless Boston gangster secretly arranged to have untold millions of dollars stored in safety-deposit boxes in Toronto Ontario and Montreal Quebec, according to FBI intelligence.
FBI intelligence also shows that the crime boss arranged for the deposits in haste, then skipped town days before a federal indictment on 18 counts of murder and numerous charges of extortion, drug-running and money laundering.
FBI agents tracking Mr. Bulger believe he may have followed his money into Canada and assumed a new identity. FBI agents say the trail of money, his links to Montreal, and our country's revered health care system are solid reasons to believe Mr. Bulger, now on heart medication, is hiding out in Canada.
``Those are the points in the investigation, plus the Canadian border is easy to get past,'' said special agent Gail Marcinkiewicz of the FBI's Boston office. ``There have also been unconfirmed sightings in Ontario and Montreal,'' the special agent said.
''Mr. Bulger, described as violent and cunning, has eluded special agents for the past five years. He has reportedly been spotted in New York City, Florida, Iowa and most recently in California. Mr. Bulger, who carries a knife at all times, Whitey Bulger has reported underworld links ranging from Montreal's West End Gang to the Las Vegas Mafia.
The West End Gang is one of Canada's most influential criminal groups and is directly linked to Whitey Bulger. Active since the early 1900s, their rise to notoriety did not begin until the 1960s when they were known simply as the "Irish gang". Their criminal activities were focused on, but not restricted to, the west side of Montreal. Most of the gang's earnings in the early days were derived from truck hijackings, home invasions, kidnapping, protection racket, drug trafficking, extortion and armed robbery. The gang, which is dominated by -- but not exclusively limited to -- members of Irish descent, began to move into the drug trade in the 1970s. They began to import hashish and cocaine and developed important contacts in the United States, South America and Europe with some members of the "West End Gang" working out of Florida.
“SNOWBIRDS” JAMES WHITEY BULGER AND CATHERINE GREIG SHOW UP IN VICTORIA ISLE, BRITISH COLUMBIA CANADA, RV PARKS ON THE LOOKOUT.
BOSTON – The search for fugitive New England mob boss James “Whitey” Bulger has ventured into western Canada. The FBI said today authorities circulated wanted posters of Bulger, 80, and his girlfriend, 59-year-old Catherine Greig, around the city of Victoria, British Columbia, last week as part of an ongoing worldwide campaign to locate the notorious South Boston gangster who fled just before he was indicted on federal racketeering charges in January 1995.
Jordan Minter of Russell Books in Victoria said three men from the FBI arrived at his store a week ago. They showed him a wanted poster for Bulger. “I got the impression they thought this person was in town and living among us,” Minter said. “They must have a tip that’s leading them.”

I would not be the least bit surprised to find out that Whitey Bulger and Catherine Greig had Canadian ID such as drivers license, passport etc. and that whatever vehicle they are driving has Canadian plates and registration. Whitey Bulger is smart, he had owned a Used Car & Body Shop business in Boston and knows how to obtain registrations and titles to vehicles.
FBI UPDATE..Then there is a depiction of a true name passport. It’s an Irish passport under James Bulger’s true name. He maintained that passport for a time, until he fled in 1995. Then there is a bank account in Montreal, Canada. I should note that Whitey Bulger conducted a lot of travel to Canada, was a Montreal Canadiens fan and traveled there extensively, also locating money there. Quickly, I’ll get into just, really, some of his behavior patterns. You know, based on these behavior patterns, we’ve received multiple leads worldwide regarding this. We would get calls regarding, you know, Bulger being in a gym because he’s a fitness buff.
We would receive leads regarding libraries, museums, of Bulger sightings, again, worldwide. Just of note there, he’s – he was proud to have served time in Alcatraz, but has vowed that he will never, ever go back to prison. Frequenting historic landmarks and museums, and as I mentioned earlier, the rare coins, stamps, tokens of all kinds. Just some more, you know, characteristics of Bulger – a real avid animal lover, liked sailing. Catherine Greig – extremely vain, as I mentioned, animal lover, you know, very – known to frequent, you know, beaches and long walks with Bulger, and was – and is compulsive about her teeth.
