Worldwide protests continue this week against the Trump administration’s racist travel ban and proposed wall between the United States and Mexico. In Toronto, the U.S. Consulate closed for business this morning as thousands of protesters rallied against the discriminatory executive orders that restrict entry for all refugees as well as people from seven Muslim-majority countries. In Ottawa, demonstrators encircled the U.S. Embassy in a show of solidarity.
Canadians are still reeling from a shooting in a Quebec City mosque that has left six people dead and several others injured. A suspect is in police custody.
