According to Post Millennial, CiberCuba reported that the Cuban Consul in Canada tried to derail a pro-democracy conference being sponsored by a Montreal-based Cuban group that is being held today (Aug 5, 2021).
It is being held in conjunction with the country’s Conservative Party in support of the tens of thousands of Cuban who have taken to the streets in that country calling for an end to communism.
CiberCuba stated that the Cuban Counsel made phone calls to Canadian Cubans to intimidate them into cancelling the conference.

And when Fidel Castro died in 2016, Prime Minister Justin Trudeau sent out a heart-felt eulogy for the former tyrant:

It was also a real honour to meet his three sons and his brother President Raúl Castro during my recent visit to Cuba. “On behalf of all Canadians, Sophie and I offer our deepest condolences to the family, friends and many, many supporters of Mr. Castro. We join the people of Cuba today in mourning the loss of this remarkable leader.”
Of course, as previously reported, Prime Minister Justin Trudeau has never seen a hammer and sickle he didn’t like:
