WINNIPEG -- While petitions are circulating in some countries to ban Donald Trump, Winnipeg's mayor is issuing an invitation to the Republican presidential hopeful.
Brian Bowman has released a letter written to Trump that urges him to visit the Manitoba capital and -- specifically -- its Canadian Museum for Human Rights.
Bowman says the visit might teach Trump some compassion and tolerance.
Trump prompted a furor around the world this week when he said that all Muslims should be banned from entering the United States.
The White House said his remarks disqualify him to be president, while several U.S. mayors joked about a Trump ban on social media.
The mayor says Winnipeg celebrates its multiculturalism and perhaps some of that would rub off on the presidential hopeful during a visit.
