Today, the Conservative Party of Canada released a publicly available social media post by Justin Trudeau’s handpicked candidate for Stormont-Dundas-South Glengarry, Heather Megill.

In a Facebook post dated November 27, 2016, Ms. Megill declared, “Long live the Revolution” in response to the death of Cuban dictator Fidel Castro. Under Castro’s rule, thousands were impoverished, thousands were imprisoned and executed, and free speech, thought and assembly were curtailed or banned.

It is disgusting that Justin Trudeau’s Liberal Party is selecting candidates who call for political violence, the imprisonment of religious and ethnic minorities, and the persecution of the LGBT community.

Trudeau himself praised Fidel Castro as “a legendary revolutionary and orator.” Trudeau also praised Fidel Castro’s “love for the Cuban people” despite the fact that the dictator murdered and imprisoned hundreds of thousands of people.

The Cuban people continue to endure oppression under Fidel Castro’s regime, even after his death. For Justin Trudeau’s candidate to call for further revolution and violence against the Cuban people is reprehensible.

Why do antisemites and people who hold these oppressive views have a home in Justin Trudeau’s Liberal Party?

Heather Megill was acclaimed by Justin Trudeau on September 4, 2019.
