Following the election from Canada, it was easy to get the impression that the majority of Americans supported Trump’s policies, outside of liberal enclaves such as New York City or San Francisco.

So it is heartening and inspiring to read reports of citizens taking to the streets in — surprisingly, to me — Alabama, Texas, Florida, among other states, to fight these unjust directives . Surely this is the true American character; this passion for justice and forthright common sense, the powerfully held belief that ordinary citizens can make a difference is distinctly yours and it’s this gutsy character that I so appreciate in Americans whenever I visit.

Keep up the good fight, friends.
