Peter Ladner’s impressions of Cuba: great health, services, crippled economy

May 8th, 2009 · 6 Comments

Our two-term councillor and recent mayoral candidate went to Cuba for the 50th anniversary of La Revolucion — a return trip after a visit in 1970, where Peter Ladner had the dubious pleasure of staying in the same hotel as FLQ refugees, if I’m recalling the story he told me correctly.

Always great to get postcards from abroad, so here is his blog post today and his impressions from his trip last week. Maybe we could get a matching set by having Tim Louis’s take on today’s Cuba — or Gregor Robertson with a few Twitter posts about life and the environmental movement in Dubai.
