"The Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship website became temporarily inaccessible to users as a result of a significant increase in the volume of traffic," a spokesperson for the agency told BBC News. "Shared Services Canada worked through the night and continues to work to resolve the issue to ensure that the website is available for users as soon as possible."
Sure, it's not 100% clear the election results directly caused the website's outages and lingering issues, but considering how many times you've heard people threaten to join our neighbors to the North throughout the bruising 2016 campaign and ones that came before it, this should really come as no surprise. But along with merely accessing the immigration website for information, it's also worth noting that someday enjoying all that delicious poutine and the nation's liberal-leaning government might be a bit more challenging than you'd expect.
It remains to be seen whether the election actually triggers a mass-exodus to Canada, but hell, maybe you'll be able to watch the Trump presidency unfold from a liberal colony of American ex-pats. You'll just have to live with the fact that you're a damn quitter, of course.
