Canada has pur­sued own path with Cuba

Re: “Trudeau’s Cuba stance dis­grace to Cana­di­ans,” Dec. 1, 2018.

Your re­cent ed­i­to­rial on Canada’s Cuba stance did not men­tion the full con­text of the UN vote on the em­bargo of Cuba.

Ac­cord­ing to UN Watch, Canada joined 114 other na­tions, in­clud­ing Nor­way, In­dia, South Africa and Cuba’s re­gional neigh­bours, in vot­ing “no” while 66 other na­tions ab­stained and two joined the United States in vot­ing “yes.” Canada has for the most part pur­sued its own point of view on Cuba over the past 50 years.
