Girl Guides of Canada has cancelled all trips to the United States until further notice because it fears problems at the border.

The announcement comes days before President Donald Trump's new US travel ban comes into effect on Thursday.

In a statement, the group said the "ability of all our members to equally enter this country is currently uncertain".

The suspension includes short trips and all travel through US airports. The group has also scrapped a planned summer camping trip to California in favour of an alternate destination.

Thanks, Trump: So much for authentic maple-syrup cookies this year!

No one wants to come here anymore. It's too risky.
