Statement from the Prime Minister from Antananarivo, Madagascar.
The Prime Minister, Justin Trudeau, today issued the following statement on the death of former Cuban President Fidel Castro:
“It is with deep sorrow that I learned today of the death of Cuba’s longest serving President.
“Fidel Castro was a larger than life leader who served his people for almost half a century. A legendary revolutionary and orator, Mr. Castro made significant improvements to the education and healthcare of his island nation.
“While a controversial figure, both Mr. Castro’s supporters and detractors recognized his tremendous dedication and love for the Cuban people who had a deep and lasting affection for “el Comandante”.
“I know my father was very proud to call him a friend and I had the opportunity to meet Fidel when my father passed away. It was also a real honour to meet his three sons and his brother President Raúl Castro during my recent visit to Cuba.
“On behalf of all Canadians, Sophie and I offer our deepest condolences to the family, friends and many, many supporters of Mr. Castro. We join the people of Cuba today in mourning the loss of this remarkable leader.”

My 2 cents.
Although Castro was a controversial figure who murdered his people. Cuba now has an excellent dental plan.
Some of the other examples.
Osama Bin Laden was certainly a controversial figure, but his contribution to airport security is unparalleled.
Stalin was a remarkable figure and one of the fathers & innovators of the strict form of diet better known as starvation
If nothing else can be said for Hannibal Lecter, at least he had great taste in people
