Donald Trump won primaries in seven states during this week's Super Tuesday, which seems to have prompted many Americans to immediately consider refuge in Canada. The evidence lies with Google, where searches for "how can I move to Canada" spiked by 350% four hours after polls closed, and 1000% by midnight. (Protip from a Canadian: moving here is not easy.)

Additionally, the Government of Canada's immigration and citizenship page was slow loading or not loading at all for many visitors. At around midnight ET, a message on the website read, "You may experience delays while using the website. We are working to resolve this issue. Thank you for your patience."
