Immigration Canada’s website has had so many requests in the early hour that the site completely crashed, giving its users an error message.

The site later rallied and was live again around 4.30am East Coast time. Americans looking to flee Trump will likely be surprised at how difficult relocating to Canada actually is — even with a functioning immigration website.
Canadians have been fighting against accepting greater numbers of political refugees, and the Canadian government has been deeply considering curbing border-jumping.
They may have to just live with the election’s results for now.
