Lots of people desire to move out - not only to Canada, but also Europe, but most already figured out that's not an easy process.
(and obviously to New Zealand):
US citizens seek to emigrate to New Zealand in record numbers | The Independent

More than 32,000 US citizens immigrated to Germany in 2016.

The first link pretty much confirm there is no exodus, the second link is hogwash.....all I needed to do is read the headline "Applications for citizenship grants rose by 70 percent in 12 weeks following election of President Donald Trump as disaffected liberals seek new life in the Antipodes"

When you emigrate, you do not "apply for citizenship", you apply for a permanent residence visa.....article discredited.

Who immigrates to the US? Mostly Third World...

I guess Canada is third world then since it was the 5th largest immigrant group in 2015...ooops!!!

So you met all these people that wanted to move to Canada as soon as they heard you were Canadian...

No, sorry to break to you but, for the most part, for the general populace there is really not much more than making a good living and your general well being....that and personal freedom....pretty much that's it...."It's the economy stupid"...remember??

Who cares if Canada is a little boring. Peace and tranquility is what I prefer. As for the comment about Maritimers being backward....That is cute coming from....You know what, you can go **** yourself.



From the land of excitement.

I said "mostly".

Sorry for being off topic - FYI: Where do immigrants to the United States come from? A new Pew report finds that this has been slowly changing over time. In 1992, most legal immigrants came from Latin America and Europe.
Nowadays, they're more likely to come from Asia and Africa. Mexicans are still the largest group with ~27%, India was the next largest country of origin, with close to 6% of all immigrants, followed by China (including Hong Kong but not Taiwan) and the Philippines, at close to 5% each, El Salvador, Vietnam, and Cuba (about 3% each), as well as the Dominican Republic, Korea, and Guatemala (2% each), rounded out the top ten. Together, immigrants from these ten countries represented 58% of the U.S. immigrant population in 2015.

No. All these people EXPRESSED their desire to move to Canada. Me being Canadian is what prompted their response.

History teaches us, that it is NOT just the economy. You being Italian, should at least understand that bit.

It hasn't been quite a year since bozo took office. The time is coming where Obama's economic policies will no longer have an effect.

If Trump, and that may be a big if, but if Trump is still in power in 2 years, I believe you will see a different picture.

That surprises you?? As economic conditions improve in their countries, people emigrate less.

Obama had no economic policies (nor Trump so far), his biggest accomplishment was the half-assed Obamacare......the US economic re-start was engineered by the Federal Reserve, hopefully with better results in the long run this time...

Trump removal from office, so far, is more fantasy than reality....
