Trudeau’s strange affinity for Cuba


On issues of basic rights and freedoms, including freedom of expression, workers rights, and political freedoms, Canada failed to join other Western liberal democracies in condemning Cuba.

According to the anonymous diplomat interviewed by the Globe, the Trudeau government doesn't want to upset Cuba "because of Canada's bid for a UN Security Council seat." In other words, the Trudeau government is so desperate to be part of the UN in-crowd - a group of corrupt, elitist, power-hungry bureaucrats - that it's willing to sacrifice on core Canadian principles.
