NDP statement on US-Cuba announcement

NDP foreign affairs critic Paul Dewar (Ottawa Centre) made the following statement today:

“President Obama has made major progress in normalizing relations with Cuba and I believe this will be beneficial to the people of Cuba.

“I thank our Canadian diplomats for their hard work on this file. This is an example of constructive diplomacy, something that Canada is very good at.

“Today is a great day for those who believe in engagement as the most effective tool of diplomacy. We should see more of this constructive approach in Canadian foreign policy.”
