In case you were labouring under any misconceptions about the sympathies of Canadian "democratic socialists" for the desperate victims of Venezuelan socialism, this should settle the matter. On one side, China, Russia, and Canadian labour unions are cheering for another five years of democratic socialism under Maduro. I wonder where CUPE and the CLC are getting their marching orders from?
“In a statement, CUPE supported the Maduro government and called the Liberals’ support of the opposition akin to aligning Canada with an American plan to engineer 'a coup d’etat.'”
Funny CUPE didn't have any complaints about Venezuela's official minimum wage of $10 / month, enough to purchase a pound of rice.
