Throughout the entire US election campaign, many Americans threatened to move to Canada if Donald Trump won the presidency.
Barbara Streisand, Chelsea Handler, Bryan Cranston, and Stephen King were among many high-profile Americans who publicly stated they would migrate north.
And as the results rolled in on election night and into the early hours of Wednesday, Citizenship and Immigration Canada’s website appeared to be inaccessible to some users.
Anyone who visted the site around 11 p.m. was greeted with an error that said, “500 – Internal server error. There is a problem with the resource you are looking for, and it cannot be displayed.”
The website was still down as of 6 a.m. Wednesday.
Twitter users have suggested it’s proof Americans are flooding the site out of fear of what the future of the United States will mean for them.
