If Rommney wins All borders are tightened in Canada in fear of mass migration!!!
OTTAWA (The Borowitz Report)—Canada announced today that it was tightening security along its border with the United States amid concerns that there could be a mass migration of illegal Americans after Tuesday, November 6th.

According to Randolph McTavish, Deputy Commissioner of the Royal Canadian Mounted Police, border patrols are on alert due to an “increase in chatter” indicating that a threat to Canada’s border might be imminent.


“We’ve been intercepting troubling comments from some very freaked-out people,” he said. “Most of it has been on NPR call-in shows.”

Stating that the R.C.M.P. is patrolling every kilometre of the Canadian border, he issued this warning to Americans who might try to cross into Canada illegally: “If you drive a Prius, you will be stopped.”

He also warned Americans against trying to slip across the border in the hopes of passing as Canadians: “It is very difficult, if not impossible, to pretend to like hockey.”

Mr. McTavish said that he was sympathetic with those who might flee across the border in search of a new life and socialized medicine, but added, “At the end of the day, forty-seven per cent of Americans is more than Canada can handle.”

Holy Shit. You know even around in Bc there have been lots of Americans coming Camping and not leaving. The more out of the way campgrounds still have people in them for holidays. Even some locals have made comments. I think its more than health care though. Canada is safer when SHTF when it comes to Natural Disasters. People are coming here to bug out.

Andy Borowitz is a well known comic, a comedienne, jokester.


Maybe if you know so little about American pop culture, you should refrain from posting such crap as this, especially as serious journalism.

And don't worry! I think Canada is safe. You'd have to be pretty desperate to go there in the first place so not likely to happen especially given the other choices in the world.
One of the most important aspects of conspiracy theories is being able to discern when there isn't one.

Oh yeah, like you'd understand anyway.

lol...its a joke

but seriously, I actually moved to Canada in 2002 after 9/11 and Bush's threats to start new wars (which he did)

Back then I actually believed there were different parties, something I no longer believe in...if anything I am a libertarian/Ron Paul tard these days

but fwiw, I was there with my spouse in 2004 for the second Bush election

We and others thought for sure there would be a mass migration of liberals north if Bush won a second term

I remember standing in a CIBC office in St John NB, where a CBC broadcast was assuming a Kerry win. CBC was showing a reel of GWB classic bloopers and everyone was laughing

Then the news reported that border crossings were on alert for possible illegal US entries..people pretending to enter for a tourist visit but intending to stay for months/years

There was even a Toronto Star story about Canadians willing to marry US liberals in order to get them residency, lol:

[link to www.theregister.co.uk]

You can help. Open your heart, and your home. Marry an American.


However, all jokes aside, once Bush won, no one moved north...I was one of the few who acted on it

I thought about it a long time, and realized its just one more empty threat.

So many Americans I know don't like cold weather (even though many parts of Canada are no colder than Connecticut and even warmer than many midwestern states at the worst of winter)...

But most importantly ... it's not really fair to Canada. Americans tend to only think of Canada as a backup plan, as someplace to escape to when everything else goes to hell...not as a cool place to go live no matter what is going on back home, which it is. Canada has a unique and low key culture, an "all for one, one for all" national spirit which is lacking in many places. I respect that, even if I myself chose not to stay.

For myself, I realized you can't run away from your problems. I'm back in the USA, for better or for worse, because I can do more to help here. It's land of my father, land that gave me many opportunities in life.

It won't get better if everyone with a brain or heart runs away...and most don't want to deal with the inconvenience of the dislocation anyway...never mind that Americans tend to dislike cold weather and would rather run away to Costa Rica or Nicaragua...

So I doubt many Americans will head north to Canada, no matter how much Canadians may fear such a migration.

I wish the best for Canada...may it continue on its unique path, and may the USA thrive through difficult times. The world needs both of us operating at the best we can be
