PM Zoolander didn't speak for me or most Canadians.
Trudashian has inspired a new twitter feed #trudeaueulogies giving praise to all the other dictators and scumbags that have ever lived.

Truth be told, he's been pretty much dead for over a decade. His brother Raul has been in charge... and I suppose his next of kin will take over next.
Communist countries do tend to devolve into monarchies.

I am glad he lived long enough to see Che's corpse dragged in the dirt, for his schemes in Central America to fail, for the Soviet Union to fall, and for Communism to rot away.

I'm pleased he lived long enough to see his island become a backwards nowhere, falling further and further behind the rest of the world.

I am pleased that to his dying day he knew the USA held Gitmo against his wishes, and without even bothering with a major garrison, because Fidel knew that he was powerless to do anything about our presence.

I am glad he lived long enough to see Trump win, and to know that whatever Bobo has done would not be continued.

He out-lived his era; he was the last man standing of a villainous bunch.

Yep, and not a word about all those political prisoners, how he took the leading economy in the Caribbean and turned it into the next to worst (Haiti still beat him), or all the people he killed to get and maintain power...

Yep, such a success.
