Well, guys, we did it.
We crashed Canadaâ€™s immigration website.
As of this writing, Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton are neck-and-neck for the presidency.Â No, reallyÂ â€” early Tuesday, Nate Silverâ€™s FiveThirtyEight projection model had Clinton at a 71 percent chance to be the nationâ€™s next leader, but as of this writing just after 10 p.m. on Election Night, Silver has Trump with a 61 percent chance of winning. The race has been back and forth all night, with swing states steering the vote in either candidates favor on a minute-by-minute basis.
And, well, this has a lot of people in a tizzy.
Chances of me having a heart attack in the next couple hours: Too close to call.

The difference between â€śtoo close to callâ€ť and â€śtoo early to callâ€ť is the difference between looking for a Xanax and looking for a beer.

So much so, in fact, that people have been thinking about moving to Canada. Like, a LOT of people. Canadaâ€™s immigration services website crashed Tuesday night, and although thereâ€™s no way to know exactly why it crashed, demand is a highly likely explanation.
After all, people were searching for how to move to Canada on Google:

And itâ€™s possible Canada may have subtweeted the United States in the midst of a very important night:

In Canada, immigrants are encouraged to bring their cultural traditions with them and share them with their fellow citizens. pic.twitter.com/MOuStZbSX7
