As social media buzzes with the news that Donald Trump will occupy the Oval Office for the next four years, Canadians have had an uncharacteristically abrupt reaction to the crashing of their country’s immigration website.
Democrats have repeatedly joked about fleeing to Canada if, in their eyes, the worst were to happen and Republican candidate Trump was elected as president.

Taking note from Trump’s campaign speeches and tweets, Canadians responded online to the website’s crash by announcing plans to build their own wall to block unwanted immigrants – “and guess who’ll be paying for it.”

Last year, Republican candidate Scott Walker considered building a wall along the Canadian border, saying it would be a “legitimate issue for us to look at.” However last February Trump admitted building a wall between the US and its northern neighbor would be “very hard” to do.
