First, the immigration site for Canada crashed on election night, and now, people all over the United States are claiming they will follow through on their promises to move up north now that a certain prominent New Yorker is headed to the White House. In fact, "move to Canada" was among the most popular Google searches of the last couple of days, according to the New York Times. (Note: reported a major increase in page views on their international listings site. Besides Canada, which was number 3, the top five countries viewed ranked by number of views were: Mexico, Jamaica, Spain and France.)
