WTF?! Castro is more important than Mulroney? you must be a troll, because Mulroney hasn't been PM of Canada for 14 years.
How much exactly do you need to know about Cuban politics, when there's been one guy in charge for about 50 years?
so depressing...

Man, nothing is worse than a recent Canadian immigrant, they think it's hilarious that we know more about Cuban or Nicaraguan or Chinese politics than Canadian politics. Dudes, Castro is way way way more important than Mulroney, ok? Sorry, but it's true.

Well, a 50-yr-old quote at least (since he died in 1957), but probably still valid.

What's interesting is that despite being dominated by American culture, Canadians haven't managed to fall into the melting pot entirely.
