There is also a different petition to declare Donald Trump persona non grata in Canada. That is a different petition from this one. The two should not be confused.

(In diplomacy, a persona non grata (Latin: "person not appreciated", plural: personae non gratae) is a foreign person whose entering or remaining in a particular country is prohibited by that country's government.)

Whereas:

The cause of Multiple Sclerosis (MS), and other neurovascular/neurological conditions, is unknown;
Recent research has shown that the covering around the brain (meninges) has a lymphatic system intended to protect it and to drain and cleanse it of impurities and that this system contains immune cells so the immune system, activated by impurities behaves as it should; and
The proper working of this lymphatic system depends on drainage through lymphatic vessels in the meninges and the draining veins (the jugular veins, the vertebral veins running down the back of the neck and the azygos vein in the chest) which must be open and draining properly.

We, the undersigned, citizens or residents of Canada, call upon the Minister of Health to urge provincial and territorial health ministers to provide
1. Access to testing of the jugular, vertebral and azygos veins for people with Multiple Sclerosis and with neurological diseases such as Parkinson’s, Alzheimer’s, ALS (Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis) and Dementia generally;
2. Access to interventional radiologists to perform angioplasty (commonly used now for venous obstructions) on these veins if the testing indicates abnormalities that impede blood flow to and from the brain;
3. Collection of data from patients before treatment to establish baselines and follow-up and collection of data after treatment;
4. Data collected to Health Canada for dissemination; and
5. Research funding into the vascular connection to all neurological diseases.
