    Yeah, Humberto, these Canadian shysters deserve a special place in Hell. The Moa mines are a "joint venture" that enriches Canadians and the Castro dynasty, but not the Cuban people, much less those who work there, under conditions that would be illegal in Canada or the rest of the civilized world.
