This question keeps popping up…and for good reason.
What could happen in Canada if Trump becomes the next American President? Thanks to CBC for tackling this one…have a read before you continue.
Obama commented on the upcoming presidential election this morning:
There is a new tourist campaign out of Cape Breton encouraging Americans to move there before the election in November to avoid living with him as president!

The idea came from a Sydney radio station host but eventually, Cape Breton partnered to make the links lead to their tourist site. Also from CBC:
The site has already drawn more than 30,000 visitors. Some people have sent Calabrese serious inquiries. A third of readers also clicked the link to the island’s official marketing website, hosted by Destination Cape Breton.
Destination Cape Breton chief executive Mary Tulle saw the interest building and called Calabrese Tuesday.
“We indicated we were on standby to help, and within 24 hours that has come to fruition,” she said. “So we will be able to track a little more significantly what this impact actually is.”
In fact, by Wednesday morning, the agency’s own website had 12,000 hits from the United States, compared with just over 1,000 this time last year.
Destination Cape Breton will help field questions about what the island has to offer. Inquiries about immigration — and there have been a few — will be redirected to others better suited to answer.
Tulle calls the phenomenon “wonderful.”
“I just smile at the good news of Cape Breton,” she said. “Thanks to Rob Calabrese and his ingenuity and his passions.”
