A number of left-wing celebrities, including Lena Dunham, have said they would flee the United States if Donald Trump becomes president. Some have said they would move to Canada. But Canadians have made it clear they’re not exactly welcome, Heat Street reported Wednesday.
According to Heat Street:
After Americans—and especially American celebrities—began considering making good on their promises to “move to Canada” in the wake of Donald Trump election victory, Canadians took to Twitter to warn Americans that they’d best stay where they are.
Some have even said they would build their own wall to keep these celebrities out of the country.

And it’s not just Canadians on social media sites.
Heat Street added:
Even CBC, Canada’s state-owned broadcasting network, is trying to actively discourage a mass migration. As the Canadian Immigration and Citizenship website crashed last night, the CBC took to its blog to warn people that emigrating to Canada isn’t as easy as jumping a border.
To avoid deportation back to Trump’s America, they’d have to spend years in Canada’s aggressive filter system and spend thousands of dollars. And then, they’d have to find jobs in Canada’s crowded urban metropolises—unless, of course, they like farming.
Which means Dunham and company would actually have to do something other than pretend to be something they’re not.

And it’s not just Dunham:

Guess they’ll just have to get over the fact that Trump won and will be the next president.
