You can also go to Cuba and talk to Canadian "refugees" (as you call "immigrants.")
I have met far more Quebecois living in Cuba than the other way around so I guess that proves to you that Quebec must be an even worse "bad name for a bad place."
Try living there for a few years with no dollars.
A lot of Americans are currently trying to live in the USA with no dollars. Tell me how that goes.

Stockholm Sundrome (love of your kidnappers) is what happens when your country is kidnapped by terrorists (from the USA, in the case of Cuba) who use big guns, big bribes, and big violence, to destroy any semblance of democratic input from locals. If you end up "loving" this kind of system while being illiterate and having no access to health care - you are an idiot with Stockholm Syndrome.
Learn to diagnose this, Sivad, because it just may affect your neighbors and family.
Also, "Tony" represents what exactly? What happens to "Tony" after Lola "loses him?"
My guess is that Tony worked with selling heroin for the CIA in order to trade arms with the contras. This kind of illegal work is one reason why Barry Manilow (and the MIC he works for) might have decided to just say "loses" when describing this important, life-changing event. It's censorship in order to futher the USA's historical amnesia.
