Food shortage in Cuba means more trade with Canada

Last week the Globe and Mail reported that two weeks ago Cuba trade minister met with Stockwell Day, Canada's International Trade Minister, in order to sign deals to bolster the amount of trade between the two nations.

Today Along the Malecon sites reports from various sources that the food situation in Cuba is worsening. It also states the Havana Times announcing the purchase of various food items from Canada.

Hopefully Cuba will get what it needs at a decent price and Canada can boost its exports to a country other then the US. Because as you all know: diversity is the spice of life.

It's not going to matter. The US sells Chicken and grain to Cuba already, but if you ask the Cubans where those items are, they haven't seen them. Only the ones running prison Cuba get to eat well.

Why is Cuba going to sell food they don't even allow their own people to eat? Think about it!
