Apropos to today, here is Calgary Sun columnist Ian Robinson from November 2004:
Anyway, the day after the U.S. election, 115,628 Americans checked out the [Canadian immigration] site and those numbers haven’t fallen off very much.
Before the election, some U.S. celebrities and numerous other Democrats vowed that they’d move to Canada if Bush were re-elected.
I hope I’m not alone in gently suggesting to those considering coming to Canada: Stay home, you pathetic whining maggots.
Particularly celebrities. Canada has suffered enough without having to put up with any of the Baldwin brothers or — heaven forfend! — Barbra Streisand.
And frankly, I don’t know if we can afford to feed Michael Moore.
