CBC is reporting that the GG will attend a memorial service for Castro and that the PM shall not be attending.  (First smart thing he's done all week, maybe he can learn from his mistakes.)

Sending the Governor General to the funeral? FFS, send a buckshee Liberal politician, don't send the GG. Castro was the former head of state of a repressive regime, we should only send token representation.

It's probably considered a diplomatic form of reciprocity. After all, Castro came to Trudeau's funeral.

Micheal Totten is always good reading

Should send the article to the Premier of Quebec and the leader of the Opposition who seem to think Castro and Che were the greatest things since sliced bread.

I need help.

I saw a hillarious poitical Cartoon.  It has Justin Trudeau in a bedroom with a huge Castro painting on the wall. JT lying on the bed like a teenager, talking on the phone with a Castro teddy.  I love it, but can't find it!

For anyone interested in statistics,

Fidel Castro slept with 35,000 women and smoked his first cigar aged 14

I'll accept the cigar at age 14, but at one a day, Castro would have to have started shortly after he lost his umbilical cord to reach that number. (35,000 divided by 365.25 days = 95.8 years) He may have been into twosomes and threesomes and moresomes, but it seems a little much.

“He slept with at least two women a day for more than four decades – one for lunch and one for supper. Sometimes he even ordered one for breakfast,” an ex-Castro official named “Ramon” tells filmmaker Ian Halperin. “I don’t think he would have stayed on as long as he did if not for all the incredible women he had access to as president.” Castro’s security would comb Havana beaches each day recruiting the hottest babes.

I wonder why he didn't shave off that awful beard?

Neat theory, but the Trudeaus first visited Cuba in 1976, when Justin was a little kid. Now we could turn the birthers loose, but come on.

A Canadian angle here ...

Canadians in Cuba were also treated for hearing loss, Ottawa says amid U.S. probe of possible attack
Confirmation of health issue comes day after U.S. says diplomats in Havana targeted by sonic weapon
CBC News Posted: Aug 10, 2017 1:15 PM ET Last Updated: Aug 10, 2017 4:46 PM ET


Global Affairs Canada has confirmed at least one Canadian diplomat in Cuba has been treated in hospital after suffering headaches and hearing loss.

The information comes a day after the U.S. government said it believed some of its diplomats in Havana had been targeted with a covert sonic device that left them with severe hearing loss.

The Canadian diplomat's family members were also affected and treated.

"We are aware of unusual symptoms affecting Canadian and U.S. diplomatic personnel and their families in Havana. The government is actively working — including with U.S. and Cuban authorities — to ascertain the cause," said Brianne Maxwell, a Global Affairs Canada spokesperson.

"At this time, we do not have any reason to believe Canadian tourists and other visitors could be affected," Maxwell added.

Global Affairs did not identify the diplomat or say when the hospitalization took place.

An investigation is focused on identifying the technology used as well as who was using it.

The Associated Press reported Wednesday that a months-long U.S. investigation had determined its diplomats had been attacked by a device that operates outside the range of normal audible sound, and used outside or inside the diplomats' residences ...
