Plata o Plomo and other ‘Canadian Values’

Obviously the work of Canadians
No cartel warnings here, move along.

Hundreds of El Paso motorists were shocked to see a disturbing message on a billboard as they drove along I-10 early Thursday morning.

The billboard read “Plata-O-Plomo,” which in Spanish literally translates to ‘Silver or Lead” is a Spanish slang that means take a bribe or suffer consequences. It has been commonly associated with the cartel violence in Juarez. The sign also had a mannequin, wearing a full business suit hanging from the billboard.

New Era Films confirmed it is currently in the planning stages of a film titled Plata o Plumo.

“It is not something that I put up or I paid for,” said New Era CEO Andrea Hidalgo.
When asked whether she or someone from her company orchestrated the displays, Hidalgo said, “no,” but added, “This is something that I am completely and totally in support of.”

I don’t think those words mean what he thinks they mean.
