Canadian TikTokers Offer Homes To Americans Who Need To Travel After Roe v. Wade Outcome

The invitation is for those who want to go "hiking," "shopping," or need "a poutine."

Canadians on TikTok are showing support for our neighbours south of the border with the "If We Go Down" trend, and it's a coded way of offering a safe space to stay if someone needs to travel to have an abortion.

Following the U.S. Supreme Court's recent decision to overturn Roe v. Wade on June 24 — which revokes the constitutional right to an abortion in the country — many Canadians took to the social media platform.

In the trend, they say where they're located and that they have a safe space for anyone who needs to "travel," before singing the lyrics "if we go down, then we go down together."

"To my American friends: I'm Nicole, your Canadian bestie," wrote user @_nicolelemke.

"I live in Ontario. If you need a break to go 'wine-tasting' and browse some local small shops, then let's go. There's space to recover from the 'hangover.'"

"I've got you," she shared, alongside a heart emoji.

"Hi! I'm your friend from Canada," wrote @kingjillqueenjack on their Tiktok.

"If your name is 'Jane,' you are always welcome to come visit me," they shared. "We can go see the sites, hit the shopping centres and go out for dinner..."

"To my American Neighbours, I live in the city of waterfalls, 45 minutes from the border," shared user @imperfectmelody. "Come explore with me, and we'll rest a few days after all the 'hiking.'"

In a particularly Canadian vein, @jessie_lynn_xox invites Americans over who need to get a "poutine."

"In Canada, you can get a poutine in every province, if you so choose," she wrote. "Not everyone wants to order poutine, and that's totally fine. It's your choice."

"In the U.S., some states have restaurants with poutine on the menu. Lots don't. And after today, fewer will," she said in reference to the June 24 decision.

"If you find yourself in need of a poutine, but live in a state that restricts access to poutine, consider a trip to Canada and give me a shout," she shared.

"I won't ask what size poutine you want or why you haven't considered other food options," she continued. "That's your choice. That is ONLY YOUR CHOICE.

"I can, however, help take you to order your poutine, wait with you while you eat, and make sure you have a comfy place to rest, post-poutine."
