In response to this, a group consisting of famous (really? I've never heard of most of them. ) Canadians such as author Naomi Klein, actor and activist Sarah Polley, civil rights lawyer Clayton Ruby, filmmaker Atom Egoyan, renowned Canadian authors Michael Ondaatje and Margaret Atwood and music stars The Barenaked Ladies. (Ok, I've heard of Barenaked Ladies. But they're Canadians?). They "launched"1 a petition dubbed "Citizen Caged", for which they reportedly have over 5,000 Canadian Signatures.
The group had this to say about the wall:
