Cuba never gave me a house, and certainly not one of any stature.

People who haven't been to Cuba just have no frame of reference for what it's like there. Virtually everything that you hear out of Miami is simply not true.

Trudeau may well be, but not on the basis of Bonokoski's rant. The only thing he got right in that little hit piece were names of prominent individuals. Facts? Not so much.
