"If Trump wins I'm moving to Canada!" That used to be a joke, one often overheard during this grueling campaign season. Only now it's quite real, it seems.
The Government of Canada's Citizenship and Immigration website first went down at around 10.30pm EST—right around the time it was first reported that key swing states like Florida, Michigan and Ohio could go to Trump. It's been down since.
