All aboard the train to Canada! It seems like EVERYBODY is weighing their options as Donald Trump maintains a shocking lead above Hillary Clinton for the presidency. Apparently, so many people looked into moving to Canada that they crashed the immigration site!
Nobody wants to live in a country lead by Donald Trump, 70. Americans sat stunned on Nov. 8 as more and more votes poured in for Donald, watching Hillary Clinton’s chances of becoming the first female president shrink smaller and smaller. In their despair, many began doing research as to where they can go, and Canada became a popular option.
Unfortunately, it might have been a little too popular. As Donald’s lead increased, the Canadian immigration site literally crashed! Now when you log on, it comes up with a message saying that there’s an “internal server error” and to “standby.” Yikes!

As soon as the site went down, Americans began rushing to Twitter to share their grievances, expressing their desire to get out of the country now before it goes downhill and pleading officials to fix the website ASAP. The country quickly became a top trend in the US.
As if to convince Americans to come, Canada’s national Twitter recently tweeted “In Canada, immigrants are encouraged to bring their cultural traditions with them and share them with their fellow citizens.” Sounds pretty alluring to people fleeing someone like Trump who wants to squash cultural variety!

Many celebrities had this idea long before the website crashed. Miley Cyrus, Chelsea Handler and Lena Dunham (just to name a few), said months before the election that they refused to live in a country lead by Donald, and that they would likely move away. See the full list right here.
