Within the last hour, few remaining polls have closed, the New York Times election forecaster is turning up Trump, and Canada’s immigration site keeps crashing.
Not joking: Canada's Immigration site just crashed. #Elections2016

The Canadian immigration site — https://t.co/ndxYr5ZaDu — is currently down, presumably under the strain of unprecedented demand.

Though it appears the site is back up and running, it’s reportedly crashed several times over the last hour.
It’s no wonder, either—Clinton and Trump are precariously close in the reporting polls, and Americans are very much clawing for a way out.
Yo @canada you still hiring or?

Packing for a little Canada vacay like "how can I fit all my bedroom furniture and kitchen appliances in this Longchamp?" #trendyproblems

How's the wifi in Canada?

Just look at those Google Trends results from the last four hours—the fear is clear.
Even Canada wants us to come aboard.

Hopefully the site stabilizes over the next few hours. We very well might need it…
