In the age of sloppy journalism, few authors are sloppier than those who claim they ‘debunked’ the story that Fidel Castro is Justin Trudeau’s biological father. They recite the Canadian governments’ official travel dates to Cuba and painfully avoid the Trudeaus’ extensive personal trip to the Caribbean trip in Spring 1971. It is a fact the Trudeaus were in the Caribbean in Spring 1971. It is a fact they adored Castro. It is a fact the Trudeaus were swingers. This is what you need to know," writes Karen Leibowitcz on her Medium account.
In addition to providing details, Liebowitcz also includes several photos that appear to show a likeness between Trudeau and a young Castro, as well as historical photos involving Trudeau's parents interacting with the brutal late dictator, who, over the course of decades, ruined the Cuban economy and caused hundreds of thousands of citizens to flee to the United States.
First, Margaret Trudeau, Pierre Trudeau, and Fidel Castro were all notoriously sexually promiscuous. Margaret Trudeau was a partier who unquestionably had sex with men while married to Pierre. Nobody knows if Pierre objected. They met when he was 48 and she was 18. They got married when he was 53 and she was 23. Their marriage surprised Canada because Pierre had been a lifelong playboy with no wife or children.
He would be turning 60 when she was barely out of her 20’s. She publicly states today she suffered from bipolar disorder and self-control issues. She smuggled drugs in the Prime Minister’s official government luggage. She sneaked away from official functions to get high. She partied scantily clad at Studio 54. She became embroiled in a scandal for having sex with Ted Kennedy (gross). According to Keith Richards of the Rolling Stones, Pierre broke up with her while she was having an affair with Ronnie Wood. The list goes on.

Citing published reports and other documents, Liebowitcz notes that the Trudeaus were huge fans of Castro. According to John English’s “Just Watch Me: The Life of Pierre Elliot Trudeau 1968–2000," the Cuban leader charmed them both and made a number of trips to the Caribbean island just to see him during an era when Cuba was embargoed by much of the free world (because Castro was a tyrant who murdered or jailed his enemies).
And in 2000, Castro also made a rare trip out of his country to go to Pierre's funeral in Canada. During the trip, Margaret welcomed him at his hotel on behalf of the Trudeau family, Liebowitcz writes, adding that over the years the Trudeaus introduced Castro to their kids.
When Castro died, Justin Trudeau was the only Western leader to give him an extremely positive eulogy and never addressed his murderous ways.
As for the Canadian PM, Liebowitcz, citing documents and travel, notes:
Justin Trudeau was born on Christmas day, 1971. In order for his father to be Fidel Castro, his mother would have to be somewhere close to Cuba in March and April 1971.
In April 1971, the Trudeaus took a long “second honeymoon” all around the Caribbean. According to Wikipedia, they visited one island they declined to disclose. It is the only island they did not disclose.
Justin Trudeau was born 8 1/2 months later, she noted, adding that the photos from 1976 show "an unusual amount of familiarity with Fidel considering he was a national leader they just allegedly met."
Trudeau, meanwhile, does not at all seem to resemble his alleged father:
And as we have seen in recent days regarding Canada's treatment of the Freedom Convoy truckers, Trudeau the PM certainly has an authoritarian streak.
