Another e-petition has hit the House of Commons website — this one, seeking to ban Donald Trump from entering the country.
The petition, started by Move Up president David Black and sponsored by Burnaby South NDP MP Kennedy Stewart, asks to block the Republican presidential hopeful from crossing the border until he says apologizes for calling for all Muslims be barred from entering the U.S.
The petition says Canada is a proud multicultural country embracing all people, and that it is illegal to incite hatred against any identifiable group in this country.
E-petitions made their debut in the House of Commons earlier this month.
The threshold required for the proposal to be debated in parliament is 500 signatures within four months.
As of Monday evening, the petition was just several dozen signatures shy of meeting the threshold.
But online reaction has been mixed.
