If you’re a Canadian feeling left out from the swarm of public protests against president-elect Donald Trump, then this may pique your interest.
An anti-Trump rally is set to go down Saturday, November 19, beginning at Toronto City Hall. Rally Against Trump’s plans call for a peaceful march to Trump Tower in protest of the 45th president of the United States vile campaign rhetoric.
Americans took to the streets in protest of the reality television star’s shocking US presidential win. Rallies are expected to continue through the weekend.

Via Rally Against Trump’s Facebook event page:
We will be gathering to peacefully protest Donald Trump’s legitimacy as US President, and to demonstrate how his, and any hateful rhetoric is unacceptable today. We as Canadians will help our neighbors by showing that misogyny, racism, homophobia, xenophobia, sexism, sexual assault, ableism, transphobia and violence are absolutely intolerable.
Trump’s campaign and victory points to a frightening and problematic cultural landscape, and this is something that we don’t need a US citizenship to help effect change on.
Since we are so closely culturallyg tied to the US, it is also something we need to actively prevent from effecting us: Keep the hate and fear out of our culture and our politics. Support and show love for those people and groups that he has alienated and degraded.
Will you be joining the cause?
