Interesting article from The Breach.

Why can't people just take their vacations then go home? It's bad enough watching corrupt politicians ruin our hillsides.

As a Canadian that has been working and living in Mexico and Panama for almost 50 years, I am fully aware of an out of perportion amount of scammers operating down in this part of the world are Scammers from Canada. One only has to read about the crooked mining companies that think they can act outside of the few laws that they are suppossed to abide with. Real estate is an easey way to con innocent people trying to fulfill their dreams

Canada has a pretty bad record regarding Indigenous land. Litigation is still ongoing. Our legal system is vastly superior to Mexico’s when it comes to application of the law. Concerning Indigenous rights, a few Supreme Court decisions have been quite favourable.

It ain’t always easy being an ethical white heterosettler but one does one’s best.

Of course it is patently obvious from the article Mexico isn’t doing much to help its own Indigenous.
