Before the US presidential election, boat-loads of Hollywood celebrities promised that if Donald Trump ever won the election, they would relocate in Canada.
Well, he won; they lied.
Not one of them kept to their promise--which doesn't surprise many conservatives--we know that many of them lie even when they say "good morning," so why is this any different?
But some liberals did leave the US and relocated to Canada. Hopefully, Canada will be able to accommodate the ex-patriots who now will make the cold north their "safe zone."
Canada's immigration services has been inundated with as many as 28 requests for Trump-related refugee status. Not a single one came from Hollywood despite all the promises.
Canadian officials say there was a "bump" in requests for refugee status following Trump's dramatic win over the US former Worst Lady, Hillary Clinton, or at least they say there seemed to be a bump (of as the French Canadians call it, a "boomp") in November, which immigration lawyers say is due from political change.
"The rhetoric coming from (U.S. political) discussion . . . was filled with a lot of concerning language, including hate, exclusion, deportation," one Canadian lawyer said to Canadian state news. "I could see why people would be concerned for their own safety, their own lives, and evaluate whether they could live (there)."
Yes, come January 20th, the United States of America is expected to become the Untied States of America. People will die. A wall will keep out undocumented people coming to the US illegally from Mexico and Muslims will be extremely vetted.
Of the 28 leftist snowflakes who have applied for refugee status, it's possible none will be approved because Canada is generally thought to be slow at taking in seriously mentally ill people who will evidently complain about anything that doesn't go their way.
The CBC found only two successful claims for asylum out of hundreds of cases filed from the U.S. since 2010.
If you are not fleeing an unjust war, or fleeing actual threat of death, Canada will probably decline your stupid request.
Fleeing what you consider an unjust election because your screaming shrew didn't win, doesn't count.
And did it ever occur to you that maybe Canada doesn't want you? Canada has enough snowflakes.
