Canadian island welcomes Americans who wish to move if Trump wins

NASHVILLE, Tenn. (WKRN) – A website inviting people to move to a small island in Nova Scotia, Canada, went viral Wednesday. aimed to appeal to Americans who might wish to move away from the United States if Donald Trump wins the presidency.

“Hi Americans! Donald Trump may become the President of your country! If that happens, and you decide to get the hell out of there, might I suggest moving to Cape Breton Island!” the website states.

Alongside scenic photos of Cape Breton Island, the site explains you can “just hop on a bus to start your new life.”

“This is not a joke! See for yourself, you belong here with us on Cape Breton Island, where health care is free, you know your neighbours and they look out for you, and nobody has a hand gun!”

In its FAQ, the site is asked if they’re for real. They say they are, and note their population is shrinking, partially due to a slow economy.

“We are an island about the same size as the Hawaiian Big Island, on the East Coast of Canada. We always rank high on travel magazine lists of beautiful islands. But we are experiencing a bit of a population problem at the moment. We need people. We need you!”
