A reported posted on the Cuban Foreign Minstry’s website mentions the CHUO 89.1 FM radio station of the University of Ottawa; and CKLN, 88.1 FM, of the University of Ryerson, in Toronto.
CHUO 89.1 FM dedicated part of its Dawn on the Ranch show to Cuba. The program started with the Cuban national anthem and the reading of a release on the anniversary of the triumph of the Cuban Revolution in January, 1959.
The show included statements by Miguel Fraga, press attaché of the Cuban embassy to Canada who noted that his fellow countrymen celebrated the date proud of the history of his country.
Fraga spoke about the efforts and dedication of the Cuban people to recover from terrorist attacks, hurricanes, as well as from the world economic crisis that hit the island over the last few years.
The diplomatic official took advantage of the opportunity to call for the release of the five Cuban anti terrorist fighters imprisoned in the U.S. since 1998 and urge the American government to put an end to the economic blockade against the island.
Meanwhile, CKLN, 88.1 FM had the Cuban general consul Jorge Soberon as guest to one of its shows. Soberon answered to questions about the Draft Economic and Social Guidelines of the Party and the Revolution.
Soberon thanked Canadian organizations for their several actions in support of the Cuban government and people.
