Certain technology company’s owners, senior employees and investors of Canada suggested to their government that it provide temporary residence to people of countries barred from entering the US following the order of Donald Trump, the US President, through an open letter on 29 January.
The letter referred to Donald Trump’s executive order, which temporarily prevents people belonging to Syria, Iran, Iraq, and four other countries from entering the US, and also bars for four months’ refugees trying to gain entry into its territory.
Reuters quotes the letter as saying that this North American country’s technology businesses appreciate the spirit of thought diversity, inclusion and the fact that talent should not be bound by borders. Said to have been signed by 200 tech leaders, the letter adds that a lot of tech entrepreneurs in Canada are either immigrants or their children.
Among the signatories are John Ruffolo, CEO of Omers Ventures, and Tobias Lutke, CEO of Shopify, a company worth about $4.6 billion.
On 28 January, Justin Trudeau, Canadian Prime Minister, had stated that Canada would gladly welcome asylum seekers from countries such as Syria.
