Canadians tell Americans: #ComeToCanada
In despair after Donald Trump's victory, some Americans say they'd rather move to Canada – and it looks like they're welcome there

MANILA, Philippines – It appears Canadians are pretty willing to take in Americans who want to leave the United States following the victory of President-elect Donald Trump.

On election day, just as the results were beginning to lean in favor of the Republican candidate, social media users noticed that Canada’s immigration website was down – presumably due to high site traffic.


At around the same time, it was reported that searches for the word “emigrate” suddenly spiked.


Americans also began tweeting their intentions – whether serious or just half-meant – to leave the US in favor of their northern neighbor.


It didn’t take long for some Canadians to start using the hashtag #ComeToCanada.


Prominent personalities who have spoken out about leaving the US should Trump win have been urged to actually do it.


Celebrities like Lena Dunham, Bryan Cranston, Amy Schumer, Barbra Streisand, and Ne-Yo, among others, previously said they would leave if Trump gets elected president.

Yes . That is a tear rolling down my cheek dripping off the end of my nose….. This makes me so unbelievable scared and sad…. Not only for our country but for animals that I love more than anything in this world…. My heart is broken into a 100000 pieces ….. I think I may vomit …. That picture on the right is so disturbing…. YOU are not destiny! It is not your job to decide when a living things life is over …. & YOU DT ARE NOT GOD NO MATTER HOW MUCH YOU THINK YOU ARE!!! (& if he doesn’t think he is “God” he thinks he is the fucking chosen one or some shit! We’re all just fucking jam between his rich ass toes! Honestly fuck this shit I am moving if this is my president! I don’t say things I don’t mean! )

One man, however, doesn’t think Canada is far enough.


For Americans who do leave, they won’t have to worry about cold, lonely Canadian nights. Here’s an amusing tweet that could help them find love.


This man, meanwhile, is the exception – he refuses to leave America for the land famous for its maple syrup.


Whether or not Canada does get an influx of immigrants from the US remains to be seen, but it’s at least comforting that the Americans seem to be welcome there.
