The Canadian government has made it abundantly clear that they support peaceful protests and freedom of expression and democracy in action.
In Cuba, that is:
Canada condemns #Cuba’s harsh sentencing following the July 2021 protests. 🇨🇦 strongly advocates for freedom of expression and the right to peaceful assembly free from intimidation. We stand with the people of 🇨🇺 in their aspiration for #democracy.

For eff’s sake.
It’s nice that the Canadian government stands with the people of Cuba trying to throw off the shackles of authoritarian oppression. Too bad they can’t extend that same courtesy to their own citizens. Canadian protesters are getting their financial accounts and assets frozen, getting their pets taken away, getting their kids taken away, and getting arrested.
And here’s the effing Canadian government pledging solidarity with Cuban protesters.
Let’s be clear: there is absolutely nothing wrong with expressing support for the Cuban people. But if you’re doing that while simultaneously cracking down on your own people, you deserve to be dragged because you’re garbage.
They know we can see them down here, right? https://t.co/ZDXt8BjpSr

CANADA – As police move in to arrest peaceful protestors, wanting basic Human Rights returned, the Canadian Foreign Office official Twitter feed rebukes Cuba … for arresting peaceful protesters.

Canada’s government doesn’t condemn Cuba’s government at all; they revere them.
It’s become a running joke lately to suggest that Justin Trudeau is the illegitimate son of Fidel Castro.
And just a reminder: Justin Trudeau is DEFINITELY NOT Fidel Castro's son, so stop saying that. Stop it right now.

But even if Trudeau and Castro aren’t related by blood, they’re inextricably joined together by their mutual love of authoritarianism.
