Short Bytes: Canada’s immigration website started facing troubles hours before Trump was declared the 45th president of the United States. Evidently, lots of anxious American citizens people are looking to move to Canada. On the other hand, Canadians are using #WhatYouDoNotKnowAboutCanada hashtag on Twitter and tweeting witty posts.
Apart from the long-term impacts, a strange incident happened on Tuesday night when the US election results started to pour in. The Government of Canada’s immigration website crashed. At the moment, some people are still facing problems to access the website.
If you’ve followed the presidential campaign closely, you might be able to guess the reason. Apparently, tons of people are looking to leave the country and move to Canada.
