Cape Breton Island in Canada is offering refuge to American citizens should Donald Trump become known as President Trump. As frightening as that is, at least there’s a plan!
The beautiful Cape Breton Island is suffering from a population decline and wants Americans to know that they would welcome us all with open arms should Trump win the presidency. A website named “Cape Breton if Donald Wins” made the following announcement:
“Hi Americans! Donald Trump may become the President of your country! If that happens, and you decide to get the hell out of there, might I suggest moving to Cape Breton Island!”
What began as a joking invitation was met with more than 10,000 hits and some very serious inquiries by Americans making plans for escape should Trump actually become POTUS. Some very compelling reasons for considering the move to Canada include free healthcare, a diverse population, very affordable housing, and weather that is quite similar to the northeast region of the United States. Plus, of course, no President Trump!
“Yes, this is Canada, but Cape Breton isn’t frozen all year round! Our Summers are delightful with highs in the 80 degree range. Winters here are very similar to the North East USA.”
The site was created by a Canadian deejay who wants Americans to know how beautiful and inviting the island really is.
“There are millions of people on this continent who, if they knew about the lifestyle here on Cape Breton, they would think, ‘This is for me.’”
Rob Calabres, the deejay in question, also wants Americans to know that all of our concerns regarding living in the United States with GOP followers will also be eliminated should we decide to defect to Cape Breton Island.
“‘Muslim people can roam freely, and the only ‘walls’ are holding up the roofs of our extremely affordable houses,’ Calabrese writes on the website.
‘This is not a joke,’ he adds. ‘You belong here with us on Cape Breton Island, where health care is free, you know your neighbours and they look out for you, and nobody has a handgun!'”
In that case, how about a mass exodus should ANY Republican candidate win the presidency?
