Following America’s shocking election results, thousands of Americans flooded to Canada’s immigration website, causing it to crash.
Canadian authorities confirmed that over 200,000 Americans had visited the website during election night. About 100,000 of the visitors were curious about migrating over to Canada; this dwarfs the 17,000 people that visited the website one week prior.
The conclusion of the election saw Donald Trump being elected as America’s new president, leading the country into uncharted political territory. During the run-up to the election, Trump had promised a number of controversial topics which include, deporting illegal immigrants, building a country wide wall against Mexico, sweeping away womens’ rights and imposing a mandatory registration of Muslim Americans.
