I support a lifetime ban for Donald Trump from entering Canada.

I support a lifetime ban for Donald Trump from entering Canada.

Ban Donald Trump from entering Canada. Ever.

Why is this important?

American business tycoon and now Republican Presidential candidate Donald Trump has called for a complete, blanket ban to prevent any muslim from entering the US for any reason. His ban could prevent over a million Muslim Canadians from crossing the border.

Trump's proposed policy is something you'd expect to find on the comments section of an ultra-right wing conspiracy site. Coming from an American presidential nominee, this level of xenophobia and hatred is nothing short of jaw dropping and incredibly dangerous. We've already seen increased violence against muslims in Canada as a result of the anti-Muslim hatred and fear stirred up by former Prime Minister Harper during his desperate re-election campaign. Trump's comments and fear mongering risk inciting widespread religious hatred and have no place in Canada. Ever.

Canada's criminal code outlaws hate propaganda, and Canada should ban Donald Trump from entering Canada and spreading his hate-mongering. For life.

Reasons for signing

  • My brother was severely disabled and bullied his entire life. He was older than me and I couldn't do anything to stop it, as I was just a little kid. I hate bullies and to honour the memory of my brother I will not allow that disgusting, despicable, racist, misogynistic, bullying pig to enter this country.
  • To President Elect Grope Trump. Thanks for setting a good example for our children!
  • I honestly cannot and will not support a man who is a misogynist pig. This man hates muslims, Mexicans, and he's even mocked the disabled. This is not the kind of person who should ever enter Canada.
