Beware of Square if you sell Cuban goods

It's legal to import and sell Cuban goods in Canada. Not good enough for Square, whose Canadian operations have enough of a US footprint to be subject to US embargo rules.

Insane. A Canadian company in Canada legally buying a product bought from a Canadian company in Canada and in Canadian funds and then selling them in Canada in Canadian funds has their credit card sales revenue withheld from them because of some US company that she has zero relationship with has their tentacles in the process

I feel for the poor businesswoman who is a victim of this nonsense.
