Quebec’s only off-reserve school for indigenous children is closing 5 months after opening.

According to CBC News, the Saguenay area school board voted to discontinue the Tshiueten project because the province will not renew the $205,000 grant it gave to launch the school.

There is growing global outrage in the wake of US President Trump's travel ban on people from seven Muslim-majority countries, the suspension of the U.S. Refugee Program and the indefinite banning of all Syrian refugees.

Reuters reported that governments from around the world are expressing their disbelief and condemnation of Trump's orders which have caused chaos, protests and heartbreak in the ensuing aftermath.

Some of the gravest warnings have come from NATO Allies, and Eastern European governments have also expressed their disapproval while Tehran and Iraq replied with similar bans directed at Americans.

Citizens have donated more than $24 million to the American Civil Liberties Union to defend the rights and liberties of people in the face of these unconstitutional regulations.
