Canadian Brenda Martin still languishing in a Mexican jail...

If you haven't heard the story of Brenda Martin yet you need to read about it. And get mad. Mad at Mexico, yes. Almost more importantly, mad at the Canadian government, and our apparently useless Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs Helena Guergis.

I'd recommend you all stay the Hell out of Mexico, but with people like Guergis advocating for mistreated Canadians abroad I wouldn't leave the country to go ANYWHERE if I were you.

I do encourage Canadians to go abroad--just not to Mexico right now.

You should be one of many Canadians who just received a passport due to US requirements to have it when travelling by air. If you don't want to travel to the US, you can always travel overseas to Europe, Japan, Australia, or New Zealand to name a few places. If you do get into trouble with the law, you should be tried in their court systems that are not exactly the same as ours but still fair. So far, Mexico doesn't pass the fairness smell test.
