In 1976, Prime Minister Pierre Trudeau embarked on a three-day visit to Havana, becoming the first leader of a NATO country to visit Cuba since the 1960 American economic embargo. The trip was widely denounced as Trudeau, accompanied by his family, was enthusiastically greeted in Havana. The unusual relationship between two enigmatic world leaders is reflected in the three critical days when Canadian politics played on the international stage. Some strong language. 2007.
