According to the Canadian Press, Diane Ablonczy approved Cuba’s recent economic changes. These include allowing ownership of private property, job opportunities in private sectors, and the right to sell a used car. The changes were made by Raul Castro after taking Cuba from his brother Fidel four years ago.
But the Canadian Press reports Ablonczy doesn’t think this will lead to democratic freedom. She says Cuba does not have political change in mind.
Ablonczy also says Canada wants to have a positive and constructive role in Cuba.
