When Karim Kanji heard about the sweeping order barring travellers from seven Muslim-majority countries from entering the United States, he knew he needed to act.
Kanji, a resident of Toronto’s Scarborough area who is himself the child of Ugandan refugees, is one of countless Canadians who took to social media to offer up his home to anyone who might be stranded at airports here at home as a result of the executive order.
