Canada's immigration website crashes on election night

As the results of the U.S. presidential election pour in, Citizenship and Immigration Canada’s website appeared to be inaccessible to some users.

Clicking on the site around 11 p.m. ET resulted in an error that stated “there is a problem with the resource you are looking for, and it cannot be displayed.”

Two hours later, it still wasn’t working. CIC has not yet commented on the apparent outage.

Try getting on a tail-chaser Hydro website. Bureaucrat websites are designed to create an illusion of useful without actually doing anything

Political ‘refugees’ from Trump presidency possible if rhetoric real: observerS

HALIFAX — A Donald Trump presidency could prompt a flow of politically motivated American emigrants akin to the Vietnam war era, though passionate first impulses to leave may cool as the new leader's agenda unfolds, say political observers and immigration experts.

Donald Savoie — a Canadian political economist who was at his second home in Florida as the vote occurred — says some U.S. citizens may consider applying to move to Canada if Trump follows through on proposed policies such as mass deportations of illegal immigrants or the reopening of international trade agreements.

"There's no question some Americans will say we can't live under these circumstances and we may see what we saw in the ... late 60s during the Vietnam war," he said in a telephone interview from Florida.

"I wouldn't take that to the bank right away ... But if he does what he says he wants to do there's no question there will be a bit of chaos and some Americans will say, 'we want out of here.'"

Savoie is a political economist at the University of Moncton who has authored one book on Canada's democracy, is working on a separate book that looks at the democratic system in both nations, and has observed multiple U.S. elections from his southern home.

In Nova Scotia, a radio announcer who created the "Cape Breton if Donald Trump Wins" website says he had about 150 emails late last night as the U.S. election results came in, including some from Americans who say they feel fearful about continuing to live in the United States.

"People are afraid and it's hard to treat it light heartedly when people are feeling so afraid," Rob Calabrese said in a telephone interview.

Calabrese says he will rename his site and expects he'll continue referring inquiries to official websites where would-be Cape Bretoners can pursue work opportunities and apply for immigration status.

We allowed the draft-dodgers in because Canada opposed the draft. I'm not sure how we can be opposed to removal of criminal illegal immigrants when we have the same laws for deportation of those persons.

We should really cut of internet access to your safe space so we don't have to listen to your whining left-wing bullsh!t anymore.

Really?? I guess the rumor about property value in NZ was just to throw people off the track. I'm thinking even east Russia would be looking good these days, sneak in from Alaska.

Never let the facts get in the way of a good narrative.
An immigration website that was supposedly overwhelmed by Americans wanting to flee to Canada because of a Trump presidency was more likely brought down by foreigners scrambling to get a basic travel document before a deadline.

CBC News has learned that the website for Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada was already in trouble hours before Donald Trump's victory became clear on Nov. 8, the day of the U.S. presidential election.
