LeBlanc says he's not advising business executives to stay away from Tijuana.
"Not at all. Our mission is to be able to advise clients on how they can get to locations safely and securely. There are very few locations in the world where we would advise a client not to go."
In fact, he says, he knows of far worse places. "Some high-risk locations in Africa, [like] Lagos, Nigeria. There's still a lot of rebel activity in Colombia, Khmer Rouge activity in Cambodia. But Lagos ranks pretty high up there. I'd much rather go to Tijuana than Lagos."
Still, LeBlanc is not optimistic about Tijuana. He sees it staying on the "dangerous" list for a while. "Unless some measures are taken from a law-enforcement standpoint to address the corruption problem in that region, [we would] think the situation is going to get worse."
