Tell Trudeau to Support Refugees

This petition had 28,658 supporters

After the recent tragic events in Paris a number of calls are being made to ban refugees from coming to Canada. Three petitions have gathered almost 100,000 signatures. Across the world, governments including Saskatchewan Premier Brad Wall, are refusing to meet international commitments towards refugees.

The only mosque in Peterborough, ON, was set on fire in an act of racial violence, and a temple in Kitchener was vandalized.

Humanity is indivisible. We refuse to exploit these tragedies to fuel fear, hatred and more war. Now is the time to open our hearts, extend our hands and homes in welcome, and to work for peace. It is time to end the wars that create the conditions for these tragedies. The cost of one fighter jet and its refugee-creating bombs could help thousands of refugees who are fleeing violence to rebuild their lives. We need to show that there are more of us who support opening borders to refugees. 

Tell Justin Trudeau: Open the borders to all refugees seeking safety, overhaul the immigration system, end the wars.
