Infographic: Are you really going to move to Canada if Trump wins?

Every election year a familiar threat resurfaces, “If my candidate doesn’t win…I’m going to move to Canada!” The sentiment is posted on social media and drudged up in conversation whenever the opposing politician does something newsworthy.

Fast forward to January when the new President has been sworn in, D.C. is full of politicians you can’t stand, and yet you and the rest of your Facebook friends have not moved up north. Is moving to Canada just an idle threat? How hard would it be to emigrate if Trump becomes president? This infographic by Sparefoot helps fill in some of those answers.sparefoot-moving-to-canada-580

    Thanks! I always wondered how difficult it really was to move to Canada. I have a lot of friends who wish they could but only one who has actually done it. Very interesting infographic, even if it does eliminate one possible escape plan for me. =)
