Canadian friends

You know all those Canadian tourists visiting Cuba? And all those Canadian dollars that flow into Fidel Castro’s economy?

Well, here is how the Canadians are repaid by the boys in Havana.

According to this CanWest report, Cuba joined forces with Iran and four other countries on Thursday at the United Nations in a move to “shame” Canada over its treatment of its indigenous population and migrants.

The resolution was put forward by Tehran in retaliation for an earlier attempt by Canada to raise human rights issues in Iran.

It was duly defeated by 107 votes to six, with another 49 countries abstaining.

Those who voted against the motion included much of Western Europe, Australia and New Zealand.

Those who voted against Canada: Iran, Cuba, North Korea, Syria, Myanmar, and Belarus.
