US & Canada State Dept alerts

The Canadians have an alert for Guerrero State, but exempt Ixtapa, Zihuatanejo, and Acapulco. Oddly, that was the US alert as well (for US Govt. employees, which we are not)

Well there are a LOT of Canadians here this year and lots of locals are commenting on it. Being a former Floridian I know how much Canadians are appreciated and how much economic weight they carry during tourist season. They were the first to arrive and the last to leave on several coastal islands I lived on in Florida, and recently they have been responsible for helping Zihuatanejo get through difficult times while the US government has been steering its citizens away from here.

Some folks here in Mexico blame the ongoing NAFTA negotiations for the U.S. government's decision to emit such a warning though there's been no change here on the ground from last year. Could be.
