Something to wipe the tears upon seeing the programming we pay for on the CBC. Or maybe as a makeshift muzzle for when the government decides what you can and cannot say.

Well, at least our scientists can now speak to the public without it being funneled through the PMO first...and a myriad other ways that government now speaks to the people instead of hiding from us.

You guys (Canadians) should be fighting this.

Just think: If large masses of Americans move north of the border, what do you think is going to happen to Canada?

Do you all really think that a massive amount of Americans moving north are going to become Canadian?

MWAHAHAHAHA!

Nope.

Last time the US tried to conquer Canada...well, let's just say we still spell it 'neighbour' .


That being said, I don't suppose that Americans fleeing Trump would be intent on turning us into carbon copy of home. Rather, that they would embrace both our commonalities, and that which makes us different. Besides, if they're headed to Cape Breton, the locals would set them straight right smart.

That's damn noble of you tundra-folk, offering to take in your lesser neighbors like that


You do realize it's going to be awful tough to teach Americans proper manners, right? I'm sure we'd eventually get the hang of it, but it's going to be a lot of proverbial faceplants before so much as "Please/Thank You" is uttered appropriately in situations.

And good luck teaching metric. It might as well be Chinese.

Then you really do not understand Americans.

We tend to bring America with us where ever we go. Bad habit, I know. But it's something that most Americans do.

A few thousand Americans? Yah, Canada would absorb them just fine.

But start looking into the millions or tens of millions?

It wouldn't take long for it to be spelled "Neighbor" by everyone....and you're beer will be watered down pretty quick!

Should Americans decide to move north and become citizens, they would quickly discover that they have entered into a society that actually is the home of the 'Free' and the 'Brave'.

Free because, as citizens, their votes count in all three forms of government: Municipal, Provincial and Federal. There is little gerrymandering (although the previous Conservatives tried), no Citizens United cash for influence and no voting machines.

Brave because we are prone to mix Socialism with Capitalism so close to a nation that considers it a 'sin'. We carve our own path.

Should millions decide to come here, it will be because they decide our way of democracy is better than what exists in America. But I doubt many will if Trump becomes POTUS. He is really shaking up those within the GOP who are in line with the Koch brothers and the push to the ultra right. Besides, Canadian politicians seldom don the scarlet robes of populism through religion. That was so 20th century and we are indeed now in the 21st.

Finally... about our beer: The primary source of good beer in Canada are our microbreweries. The old standards of Labatts (etc.) were bought out by American companies like Coors (Koch bros) and their constant attempts to incorporate our little microbreweries as well will keep failing. Whenever one is bought, two more spring up.

We make good local beer, period, and that can never be watered down.

My own personal opinion is if someone migrates from one country to another, it's because the place they want to move to: makes them happy.

That could be politics, yes, taxes, yes, the culture and people, yes and yes, even the beer (or wine).

As far as people leaving the US because of who gets voted into office?

Yah, we see this all the time. People screaming and yelling that if "insert name here: is elected to POTUS, I'm moving to (Canada, Mexico, somewhere other than the US), when if fact, very little people do so.

Okay, you had me at 'beer'. I'll suit up and be on my way. And NO tornados. I'm so sick of tornados and hurricanes.
I'll drink beer in my leg warmers and watch tornados on TV.

Do you get Naked and Afraid? and Botched? And Steven Colbert?

I went to Canada as a girl with my parents because my mother wanted to look at flowers, but have not been fortunate enough to return since then.

Agree completely. The reason why Americans scream and yell over politics is because it is SOOO divisive. Too many influences, too many attack ads, Too much racism and religion, too long an election process and far too much money thrown into it.

Once the election is over, the insanity still does not stop... it goes on for entire terms of office, as was shown by the reluctance of the GOP to EVER give in to the Democrats, fighting Obama for 8 years in whatever way they could.

It's grating to have to put up with the constant bickering. At least Trump and Sanders are looking to change that system.

Speaking of construction...
That is my real wish for many Americans to move here...
You see if many did... it would be boom time for me...
I would be building apartments and houses etc like crazy...
I'm out of work right now because the general contractor for the apartment I was building stole a lot of money from the owner and left the country for the Philippines...
Now the job is shut down till all the legal crap is done...
Was supposed to be doing 2 more for the owner who is a doctor than a fill up a sub division with houses and strip malls...
But I like Americans...not all Canadians feel that way...

You stuck in the late 80's?

Now it is:

    Cold construction
    Not so cold construction
    Hot construction
    Getting colder construction



Get with the times...we work all year round now.

The offer was posted as a joke and never expected to be taken seriously. Cape Bretoner's are finding the serious responses funny. But hey,anything that attracts more tourists to the Island to support the only industry left..is A- OK. Instead of browsing the local scenic real estate,might want to look up the economic decline. No jobs. Men that traveled to the Alberta oil fields,are now depending on savings or government money. There is little or no industry left but tourism and since the outsourcing of advertising for that,even that declined. Not to mention the discussion of reinstating a toll on the causeway,the only main connection to Nova Scotia. If anyone in America is serious about moving to Canada...pick somewhere else. I love my province,I really do...but playing up it's attributes works only for vacation planning,and not much else.

One heck of a place to vacation, though!
