Moving to Canada is an American tradition

If Google searches and late-night talk show hosts are to be believed, the Peace Bridge may soon be overrun with Americans fleeing Donald Trump’s relentless march towards the presidency.

Google reported that the search term “how can I move to Canada” surged 350 per cent within a matter of hours on Super Tuesday. While Cape Bretoners are encouraging those hapless refugees of Trumpmania to emigrate to their windy shores.

These Yanks aren’t traitors against their homeland — they’re simply exercising their God-given right as Americans to head north when things get rough at home.

Here’s a look at the centuries-long tradition of Americans moving to Canada.

2. It is adorable.

The way Americans think they can wander to any country and stay and it'll be ok!

And then comes the shock that they have fill out forms, pay fees, meet requirements (like having a sponsor), and they still may not be able to stay.

Just an FYI, Canada is not another state. You aren't moving from Maryland to Colorado. It's a country with its own immigration laws. OMG who knew?!??

3. Trudeau is in Washington today

and Obama was joking about this, reminding everyone that threats to move to Canada during election campaigns are a perennial of American politics.
