BC NDP MLA Hails Cuba as a Socialist Utopia

British Columbia NDP MLA Jagrup Brar cannot contain his praise for the Castros' Cuba:
Brar told a Radio India audience in Metro Vancouver last week that the gap between rich and poor is virtually non-existent in Cuba, education is free and no child goes to bed hungry.
Of course, there's no freedom or human rights to speak of, but that's a small price to pay for free education and standardized economic circumstances, right?  (In reality, it's standardized--i.e. crappy--for the hoi polloi. As in all such centralized systems, the ruling few at the very top enjoy a much more lavish and privileged lifestyle, one ordinary folks can only dream of.)

Update: Canadian standardizers bemoan the gap between rich and poor in Ontario.
