Cubans to get titles to state-owned homes, wage limits may be lifted

Other changes made since Raul Castro became president include allowing Cubans to buy cellphones, previously only the domain of government officials and foreign companies.

Also, a ban has been lifted on Cubans buying such goods as computers, DVD players and microwaves.


Are people smelling "Chinese-style communism" as much as I do?

From the CBC profiles of Liberal leadership candidates:

As a Liberal MP, Godfrey co-sponsored a protest private member's bill in 1996 as a response to the American Helms-Burton Act. The U.S. law set up punishments on any business or person that profited from the seizure of property from American businesses and people during the 1950s Cuban Revolution, including a number of Canadian companies. The Godfrey-Milliken Bill was a tongue-in-cheek analogy of the bill, calling for Canadian descendents of United Empire Loyalists (Godfrey among them) who fled the American Revolution to be able to reclaim land and property that was confiscated by the U.S. government.
