Gold star father cancels Toronto event
The organizer of a luncheon featuring a speech by the father of an American Muslim soldier killed in Iraq say the event has been cancelled because the man's ``travel privileges are being reviewed.''
Ramsay Talks says Khizr Khan, who has publicly criticized U.S. President Donald Trump for his anti-Muslim rhetoric, was scheduled to be in Toronto on Tuesday to talk about tolerance, understanding and unity.
Khan, a Harvard-trained lawyer who immigrated to the United States from Pakistan decades ago, was scheduled to talk about tolerance, understanding and unity in Toronto on Tuesday.
The company says Khan was notified late Sunday night that his travel privileges were being reviewed.
Neither Khan nor Ramsay Talks say who is reviewing his travel privileges and why.
On Monday, Trump unveiled a revised travel ban that temporarily halts entry to the U.S. for people from six Muslim-majority nations who are seeking new visas and suspends the country's refugee program.
