      why does Castro deserve a "memorial" thread or to "be nice"? He was an evil dictator, and his brother Raul is now in charge and as bad.

        I'm amazed how he smoked for decades and lived to 90.

            Shigechiyo Izumi, who at one time held the Guinness Record for longest lifespan (120) smoked almost all his life.

              I don't get all the "Cuba is free" sentiment I'm hearing. Raul Castro isn't going to undo everything.

                Fidel was an evil man and has passed into judgment.

                  No, but his power is greatly diminished, and I wouldn't be surprised if he was soon exiled to.... to... Venezuela?

                      Yes, apparently a typical Obama-style 'deal' where Castro won big, and the US got no concessions. Perhaps, with Fidel's passing, those "ties" can be refined to the good of the Cuban and American people.

                        Canada's Trudeau to skip Castro funeral after backlash

                        By Andrea Hopkins

                        OTTAWA (Reuters) - Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau will not attend the funeral of Fidel Castro, his office said on Monday, days after Trudeau's warm comments about the late Cuban leader sparked a backlash.

                        Trudeau referred on Saturday to Castro as a "remarkable leader" and expressed his sorrow at the death of "Cuba’s longest serving president."

                        Trudeau acknowledged on Sunday that Castro had been a dictator as political opponents called on him to boycott the funeral.

                        Outrage and mockery about Trudeau's fond words for Castro, who had been an honorary pallbearer at the funeral in 2000 of Trudeau's father, former Prime Minister Pierre Trudeau, has threatened to end the Liberal leader's long honeymoon.

                        Noting the "many questions" about whether Trudeau would attend the funeral, spokeswoman Andree-Lyne Halle said in an email the prime minister would skip the event.

                        "His schedule doesn't permit it," she said.

                          This doesn't seem to be working out as The Year of the Liberals, does it?

                            According to the news yesterday, he is unhappy that people might not like him if he goes.

                            He is a jackass, and he is not my PM.
