As Trump forges path, many Americans do, too – to Canada

As Donald Trump forged a path to the presidency in the United States on Tuesday, many Americans apparently were contemplating a move north – over the border.

The immigration website operated by the Government of Canada crashed about 10:30 p.m., followed by intermittent accessibility, Business Insider reported.

Google search traffic to the immigration site began to build around 9 p.m. as CNN announced that a number of key states in the election including Florida could all swing in the Republican nominee's favor.  

Business Insider said the top story on its site is currently "How to move to Canada and become a Canadian citizen."


The home page of the Canadian government's immigration web site was down for the count on Tuesday night.
