Canada's military took to Twitter to welcome recruits from all gender identities on Wednesday, hours after U.S. President Donald Trump said he would ban transgender people from the U.S. military.
The tweet from the Canadian Armed Forces' official account included a photo of military band members marching in a parade with rainbow flags fluttering from their instruments.
"We welcome Cdns of all sexual orientations and gender identities. Join us!" said the tweet, which included the hashtag #DiversityIsOurStrength.
Within an hour, it had been retweeted 2,500 times.
