Conspiracy Corner: Canada’s Secret Daddy

Abigail Buenker, Business Manager

It has been speculated for some time now that Cuban dictator Fidel Castro has ties to current Prime Minister of Canada, Justin Trudeau. Though Trudeau has spoken out publicly against the Cuban regime and the Castro family, some seem to think that the bad blood between the two families and nations runs even deeper than it seems. In a biography of Justin’s father Pierre Trudeau, the 15th Prime Minister of Canada, Pierre writes of his travels to Cuba and even mentions meeting Fidel and his brother. In his biography, he states that his wife Margaret found Cuba to be “thoroughly captivating” despite finding formal political matters very tedious.

Though this gives some historical insight to the Trudeau’s visits to Cuba, what gives even more base to this theory is the date of Justin’s birth. Justin was born on December 25, 1971, only nine months after Pierre and Margaret’s honeymoon in Vancouver. But before the pair wed on March 4, 1971, it is speculated that the couple went to Cuba. The resemblance of Fidel and Justin is also uncanny, as both have dark hair and a similar chiseled jaw. Fidel and Justin share the same height of 6’3” whereas Pierre is only 5’8”.

On Nov. 29, 2016, shortly after Fidel Castro died at age 90, Justin released a statement in lieu of his death saying, “While a controversial figure, both Mr. Castro’s supporters and detractors recognized his tremendous dedication and love for the Cuban people who had a deep and lasting affection for ‘el Comandante.’ I know my father was very proud to call him a friend and I had the opportunity to meet Fidel when my father passed away. It was also a real honour to meet his three sons and his brother President Raúl Castro during my recent visit to Cuba.”

Trudeau’s comments came with controversy not only in regard to his paternity but also for the thousands of Cuban citizens that previously lived under Castro’s rule.
