The bloody gang war waging in Winnipeg over the cocaine trade is more akin 
to Chicago during alcohol prohibition than Tombstone, Ariz. (letters, Dec. 19)

Enlisting more Untouchables to chase the Capones is not the solution. 
Fighting the drug trade simply makes drugs more valuable and dealers more 

We fought the law of economics and the law won.  Time to stop the failed 
war on drugs.

Matthew M. Elrod, Victoria, B.C.
