  • ‘How to Move to Canada’ Searches Spike 1500% After Donald Trump Victories

    The phrase “how to move to Canada” began trending on Google as results poured in from across the nation. According to Google data editor Simon Rogers, searches for the phrase spiked 350 percent between 8 p.m. and midnight Eastern time.

    By midnight, that number jumped to 1,500 percent, according to Google Trends.

    There are also reports of the Canadian Immigration site going down due to high traffic loads.

    Don't think we've ever seen a candidate(s) where so many Americans would rather leave the country than live under his reign. Admittedly, I'm sure a lot aren't satisfied with the alternative either and the general political climate in America. Wherever you stand, this level of dissatisfaction doesn't bode well for anyone.

      That's a cop-out. It's not just the left, Trump has destroyed and divided his own party as well.

        Yea, but Republicans aren't moving to Canada, they're buying guns...

          Probably up there with "How to Move to the States" after Truedeau's victory.

              Are you sure this is due to Trump? Hillary also came out ahead.

                The question is:

                Of those looking to Immigrate to Canada......how many of them would be providing Canada with an asset? IOW, how many of them would be producing more in tax revenue than they would cost Canada in payouts? Notice that eligibility was the FIRST thing on the 'Immigrate to Canada' screenshot. If you're not providing Canada with any assets other than your arse(ts), then they're probably not going to deem you eligible to move there and screw up things....Canadian Healthcare and other programs requires that pay in equals up to pay out after all.......

                Permanent College Students, Academia, and the like aren't going to be producing anything tangible, unless Canada is somehow in such need of Baristas that the swap from Green to Orange aprons will boost their economy. No matter how many college professors you move into a country, there's still a limited number of colleges to profess at........so what you're likely looking at is a glut of unskilled labor (with or without sheepskin), Celebrities (who can't remain hyper rich as the Real Housewives of Quebec), and a pile of academics competing for limited academia positions.

                Hollywood and other celebrities make their fortunes working in whatever locale the job is. If they're working in Cali, they'll still be paying Cali and US taxes on their income made in the States. If they want to add Canadian taxes to that, then go for it. Doesn't hurt me one bit.

                Unless we're seeing actual real honest to goodness industries suddenly looking to move to Canada, the movement of people is irrelevant. We have more people than jobs anyway, so as long as the people move and the jobs don't we're in good stead, let Canada pay for them to exist. And Trump is more likely to attract business to the US than run it off.....the same can't be said of the current President, or of either Hillary or Bernie.

                  I'd only have to move 20 miles. In the past, I've done research on how to legally take my guns with me. It's not that hard. I find Hillary and Trump equally repulsive. I'm within two years of retirement, so it's a viable possibility.

                    Don't need any more stupid leftists in this country. Stay home please.

                        Send them to the Northwest Territories......with only the cold weather gear they brought with them. Give them 40 acres and a mule. 6 months later you'll have your acreage back.......they'll starve or freeze to death. Unfortunately the mules will get eaten or sold.

                          Good, let em leave. Our country would be better off without them. Let them move to their leftist paradise rather than try to ruin our country.

                            Excellent. It's way past time to thin the herd, and Canada is as good a place as any to send the losers, the failures and immature.

                            If they wait until next January, they can take BoBo with them.

                              I wonder why people thinking of moving to Canada to avoid the likely republican candidate is somehow worse than people actually giving up US citizenship under a democratic president. (And his tax laws)


                              The number of Americans choosing to give up their citizenship has spiked dramatically this year as the government works to implement a new disclosure law aimed at stamping out tax evasion.
