Mex­ico off list for places to visit

The Guardian (Charlottetown) - - EDITORIAL -

The mayor of Mex­ico City was slain a day af­ter be­ing in­au­gu­rated which fol­lowed the mur­der of Te­muco Mayor Gisela Mota. Or­ga­nized crime is blamed for the killings as a warn­ing to other may­ors or any­one who op­poses the drug lords. Or­ga­nized crime con­trols most of Mex­ico be­cause of wide­spread cor­rup­tion in the gov­ern­ment, army, po­lice and se­cu­rity forces who are on the drug lords’ pay­roll. This is why I would not take a va­ca­tion in Mex­ico no mat­ter how safe they claim the high­end va­ca­tion re­sorts are sup­posed to be. The Mex­i­can gov­ern­ment needs to clean house and take back con­trol of their coun­try and re­store law and or­der. David Steeves, Char­lot­te­town
