Within minutes of the announcement that Donald Trump would be the next President of the United States, Canada’s immigration website went down.
The rush of Leftists looking to leave the country must have been so great that the Canadian immigration site went down a little before 11 p.m. Eastern Time.

Many Americans – including several celebrities – have promised to leave the country if Trump wins the election and for many of the, that may be true.
NewsMax reported in March, during the primary season, the question “How can I move to Canada” was a trending question on Google.

Earlier this year, Canada’s Cape Breton Island started a campaign to lure Americans to their area who were worried about a Trump Presidency.
Rob Calabrese started the website Cape Breton if Trump Wins as a fun project, but it unexpectedly has taken up a lot of his time this year
“I don’t know man, I think it’s pretty crummy news,” Calabrese told CBC’s Information Morning.
“It was kind of a joke, it was a way to shine a light on our kind-of population problem in Cape Breton. If you’re asking did I think he would win? Then I don’t think anyone on the world could have said yes.”
He said in the first few weeks of the website launched in February, almost a million people visited the site and thousands wrote to Calabrese with questions about how they could move to Cape Breton. He said he received queries from both Clinton and Trump supporters.
