Two More Canadians Shot In Mexico

By Brandigal (Donna)     Feb 4, 2007 in Crime
Two more Ontario residents were shot in an Acapulco hotel Saturday night.
A man and woman were shot at an Acapulco hotel. The two victims are Rita Calara, 55, and Yoyo Manela, 73. The two were shot in the legs but the injuries are not life threatening.
Both were from Woodbridge, Ontario the same place that Adam De Prisco was from. Adam was killed in Mexico last month from a hit and run.
Also the same city that Domenic and Nancy Ianiero were from when they were brutally murdered in their hotel room in Mexico.
The Canadian government has issued repeated warnings to citizens regarding the dangers of travel to Mexico.
I do not think i will be travelling to Mexico in the near future.

Liberal Dan McTeague said "For people who have already booked flights or who are already there, then one would be best advised to do two things: Contact your tour operator or agent to ensure the area you're travelling to is safe, and any Canadians travelling to Acapulco, even for only a week, should register with Foreign Affairs.
"The (current) travel advisory for Mexico and Acapulco does suggest to be very careful. It's not Canada, but the frequency with which these events have happened highlights to Canadians the need to be careful."
