Government Response Tabled

Petition to the House of Commons in Parliament assembled

Whereas:
  • Canada is a proudly multicultural nation;
  • Canadians embrace all people regardless of ancestry or religion;
  • It is illegal in Canada to incite hatred against any identifiable group; and
  • President Donald Trump has unfairly specified Muslims to be banned from entering the United States.
We, the undersigned, citizens of Canada, call upon the Government of Canada to prohibit President Donald Trump from entering Canada until he withdraws his Executive Order that prohibits travel from Sudan, Syria, Lybia, Iran, Iraq, Somalia and Yemen because it violates human or international rights.
