Although CBC News has published numerous stories about the Cuban dictatorship and the fact that Cuba has a long record of political executions, arbitrary imprisonment and torture, Canada’s state broadcaster is sending a family on an all-inclusive Cuban vacation in a contest sponsored, in part, by Cuba’s communist government.

The CBC Holiday Escape to Cuba Contest, which is accepting registrants until Jan. 5, is also sponsored by the Canadian vacation company Sunwing.

True North’s Andrew Lawton explains in his latest video.

Fan of Andrew’s? Help us call out the hypocrisy of the CBC by joining the Heritage Club:

We’re asking readers, like you, to make a contribution in support of True North’s fact-based, independent journalism.

Unlike the mainstream media, True North isn’t getting a government bailout. Instead, we depend on the generosity of Canadians like you.

How can a media outlet be trusted to remain neutral and fair if they’re beneficiaries of a government handout? We don’t think they can.

This is why independent media in Canada is more important than ever. If you’re able, please make a tax-deductible donation to True North today. Thank you so much.
