Oh sure Bill...now you've gone and done it. Here's a quote from the article linked above:

"Now police in B.C. are on high alert, fearing a gang war that started in Metro Vancouver is spilling over into Mexico."

After reading this, no one will want to visit Vancouver because of all the drug violence...
We'll have to endure countless threads about why it's not safe to travel to Canada. Arrgh!

To be honest, the thought that BC had a drug war problem had never crossed my mind until I saw this article (too much time smelling the flowers in Victoria Gardens, I guess). Again, probably not something most tourists should worry about since this was clearly a "contract" - unless you are caught in the crossfire!!

I thought the article shows that people involved in criminal activities are the bulk of people getting shot in Mexico.

The big difference that I see between Nuevo Vallarta and Vancouver is all of the aggressive pan handlers in BC.

I still plan on buying a Mocha Frapacuino at Starbucks on our next visit to Nuevo.

This looks like it took place in front of the Paradise Village mall.

I read that this is the person who was connected to the shooting outside of the Kelowna BC casino and timeshare. Wish they had a way of getting them off the streets without endangering innocent people. Like many others this will not keep me from vacationing in Mexico or Kelowna.

Something tells me that being a Hells Angel gang member greatly increases your odds of getting shot anywhere in the world.
