Canadian Immigration Website Crashes

Tuesday night as Donald Trump’s victory became closer and closer to a reality, a neighboring nation felt the impact.

The website offering instructions on how to become a Canadian citizen reportedly received so many hits, it crashed.

People trying to get information from the site experienced long delays and eventually got an error message saying there was a problem with the server.    Users reported that some pages were still up, but others were down completely.

Many anti-Trump Americans had long ago declared if Trump won the election, they would just move to Canada, and apparently they weren’t kidding.

Business Insider also reported that on Google Trends, the term “Canadian immigration” started surging about 10:23 pm, right after the media networks announced Trump had won the swing state of Ohio.

The term for the Canadian national anthem, “O Canada!” also started trending – which is ironic considering some who opposed Trump had started kneeling when America’s national anthem was played.

From The State:

According to Global News, just under 8,500 Americans emigrated from the U.S. to Canada in 2014. The entire process of obtaining an expedited visa can cost thousands of dollars and take up to six months. Alternatively, you can always marry a Canadian.
