Oh Canada, what have you done? We always maintained that liberals could not be trusted with anything more important than warming milk, but now we fear that liberals in Canada may have elected none other than Fidel Castro’s son.
You have to admit the similarity is disturbing, and it also goes some way to explain Trudeau’s comments regarding the recently deceased Cuban leader in an official statement, which lacked any sort of criticism of the Cuban regime, or leader.
“It is with deep sorrow that I learned today of the death of Cuba’s longest serving President.
“Fidel Castro was a larger than life leader who served his people for almost half a century. A legendary revolutionary and orator, Mr. Castro made significant improvements to the education and healthcare of his island nation.
“While a controversial figure, both Mr. Castro’s supporters and detractors recognized his tremendous dedication and love for the Cuban people who had a deep and lasting affection for “el Comandante”.
“I know my father was very proud to call him a friend and I had the opportunity to meet Fidel when my father passed away. It was also a real honour to meet his three sons and his brother President Raúl Castro during my recent visit to Cuba.
“On behalf of all Canadians, Sophie and I offer our deepest condolences to the family, friends and many, many supporters of Mr. Castro. We join the people of Cuba today in mourning the loss of this remarkable leader.”
