As votes roll in for Donald Trump, Canada’s immigration website crashes

Well, guys, we did it.

We crashed Canada’s immigration website.

Trump plans Monday to further address the deadliest shooting in modern U.S. history in a campaign speech originally intended to attack the presumptive Democratic nominee, Hillary Clinton. The switch comes a day after Trump called for Clinton to drop out of the race for president if she didn’t use the words “radical Islam” to describe the Florida nightclub massacre.

As of this writing, Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton are neck-and-neck for the presidency. No, really — early Tuesday, Nate Silver’s FiveThirtyEight projection model had Clinton at a 71 percent chance to be the nation’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.

So much so, in fact, that people have been thinking about moving to Canada. Like, a LOT of people. Canada’s immigration services website crashed Tuesday night, and although there’s no way to know exactly why it crashed, demand is a highly possible explanation.

And it’s possible Canada may have subtweeted the United States in the midst of a very important night:
