If Justin's last name was Mulroney, Campbell, or Clark, the statement probably would have been different.

So, perfectly willing to cut him plenty of slack given the special nature of his dad's relationship with Fidel.

Canada and others "motivated by the greedy desire" to obtain exactly what from Cuba in the way of profits.

Now once again, would you at least consider the nature of irony as it applies to your castigating Trudeau when an endless succession of your governments have usurped many legitimate leaders to then install despots in their place for nothing more than those profits you mention?

You're wasting you mindless drivel with this silliness.

American history in this regard is too well known for this balloon of yours to get off the ground.
Yup. I agree with you.

Our "liberal" friends like to support all kinds of totalitarian, oppressive regimes around the world (China, Cuba, maybe even North Korea).

Trudeau is not liberal in any way - how can a real liberal support such regimes... I was born in Soviet Union and got vaccination against all kind of leftist / marxist / socialist (you name it) propaganda from young age. However many Canadians probably don't understand that "liberal" does not always mean liberal...

What's wrong with that? That's other countries' business.
Jus be friendly and do business. No point of judging as if Canada were so superior.

My grandparents fled the Revolution in the Soviet Union but even they understood, after all that they had been through, the hypocrisy that makes the dictator seen as being on your side, more tolerable than the dictator seen as being on the the other side.

Perhaps you should examine more closely "conservative, " and in particular US support of right wing dictatorships.

Get over it, people. Canada has been trading with, and allowing tourism to, Cuba for decades. Trudeau was just being diplomatic. It's what heads of state do.

Did I say something about US and right wing dictatorships? No, I was talking about Trudeau and his hypocritical approach to the liberal values. I oppose any kind of dictatorships, it is PM Trudeau (or his advisors, as he is probably not too smart for this) consider marxist dictatorship regime as something benign. It is so hypocritical... He tries to project himself and Canada as having higher moral values, yet makes a wonderful eulogy to one of the most famous dictators, that 20% of the population ran away from his legendary revolutionary rule.

Trudeau didn't have to compose dithyrambs for the late dictator...

It is not me - it is Trudeau who pushes Canadian moral superiority (did you listen to his speech at UN general assembly), a couple of days ago he traveled to Africa to promote gender equality and LBGT issues.
