Obama Romney caricature by DonkeyHoteyEve­ry four years, as the next US pre­si­den­tial elec­tion approaches, the spe­cu­la­tion begins anew.

Will thou­sands of Ame­ri­cans move to Cana­da if their can­di­date loses?

In «At a Loss? There’s Always Cana­da» the نيويورك تايمز writes that « The pledge (to move across the bor­der) comes most­ly from left-lea­ning Ame­ri­cans who view Cana­da, with its uni­ver­sal health care and cultu­ral pro­gres­si­ve­ness, as a libe­ral refuge from Red State America. »

Howe­ver, do people actual­ly make the move?

Ùˆ مرات reports that « …the num­ber of Uni­ted States citi­zens who per­ma­nent­ly reside in Cana­da dou­bled during George W. Bush’s pre­si­den­cy (من 5,800 في 2000 إلى 11,200 في 2008, accor­ding to Citi­zen and Immi­gra­tion Cana­da). »

It may not be elec­tions moti­va­ting the move, على الرغم. Ùˆ مرات concludes that « pocket­book issues out­weigh poli­tics» with far more people relo­ca­ting for work than for poli­ti­cal reasons.

حتى, what do Cana­dians think of Ame­ri­cans” decla­ra­tions to relo­cate after the election?

Ùˆ Washing­ton Post conduc­ted a twit­ter poll and conclu­ded that Cana­dians are amu­sed by Ame­ri­can threats to move north if their can­di­date loses.

Cool by me as long as it’s only the good ones. ولكن لا يعرفون عن فصل الشتاء لدينا?

We wel­come them. After all we took the loya­lists after independence.…

Per­so­nal­ly, I would like you to handle your own dra­ma. لكن, تعلمون, we’ve got room.

Here’s a ques­tion for the Ame­ri­cans out there: Did you come to Cana­da for poli­ti­cal reasons

Would you move across the bor­der if your can­di­date loses?

Please leave a com­ment and let us know what you think.
