CANADA: Toronto School Board Cancels Student Trips To USA Over Trump’s Muslim Travel Ban

The BBC reports:

Canada’s largest school board is cancelling new school trips to the United States until further notice. The Toronto District School Board announced the decision citing “uncertainty” with regards to who may be affected by US President Donald’s Trump’s latest travel restrictions. Twenty-five already scheduled trips will go ahead as planned.

The school board joins the Girl Guides of Canada and a few other schools in temporarily halting travel to the US. In a statement released on Thursday, Director of Education John Malloy said that the district school board faced “a difficult choice”. “We strongly believe that our students should not be placed into these situations of potentially being turned away at the border,” said Mr Malloy.
