sympathy cards US consulate toronto

Sympathy cards placed outside US consulate in Toronto

When Donald Trump won the American presidential election, many were - and still are - worried about what his leadership means for both the United States as well as countries around the world. There's lots of fear swirling about and people are reacting to it - and combatting it - in a myriad of ways.

Take, for instance, the sympathy cards that appeared in front of the US Consulate on University Avenue in Toronto.

It's unclear who started this memorial, but photos of it surfaced on Twitter, and later on Reddit and Instagram. "Sincere condolences on the death of medicaid, education and women's rights," reads the card.

It would seem Toronto is mourning right along with the blue states to the south.
