“5 reasons to flee the US for Canada”
As [...] Donald Trump pledged
to “Make America Great Again,”[...]
there’s a slew of public figures who have
made quite a different pledge — to move
to Canada. And some members of the
public, at least, appeared to be intent on
making good on that promise. Canada’s
immigration website repeatedly crashed
as Trump’s chances rose late Tuesday.
[Many] actors have threatened to cross
the border if Trump becomes U.S.
President. They’re not the first people
to threaten to move north of the border.
Tens of thousands of Americans are
right behind them.
“5 reasons to flee the US for Canada (that have

As Canada is in Northern
America but remained a British Dominion
until 1982, the rules for writing and
pronouncing Canadian English combine the
British and American rules. Words derived
from French are usually spelt the British
way (for example: colour, centre). However,
verbs ending in -ise in British English are
usually spelt the American way (-ize).
