Canada's immigration and citizenship page overwhelmed

It appears that many Democrats are serious on making good on their promise to leave the country if Donald Trump would become the next president of the United States.

And he did.

As Donald Trump clinched crucial swing states in Florida, North Carolina and Ohio, Canada’s immigration page crashed — presumably to high amounts of web traffic.

Anyone trying to visit the Citizenship and Immigration page on the Canadian government’s website was met with a “500 - Internal server error.”



In addition, Google trends reports that searches for “move to Canada” spiked from a rating of 13 to a rating of 100 in the span of two and a half hours.

Comedian Sinbad went a step further, claiming that he’ll be in Toronto on Wednesday and will be searching for property.
