Shockingly, not a lot of people threatening to move to Canada over Trump actually did. Some of it was just people talking out of their hind parts (see Bill Burr Mocks Anti-Trump Celebrities ‘Moving to Canada’). Some of it also had to do with Canada having an actual immigration policy preventing it. But leave it to Generation Snowflake to still find a way…Canadian colleges!
Colleges from Quebec to British Columbia say applications and website traffic from the United States have been surging since Trump’s victory Nov. 8. Although many Canadian schools had also ramped up recruiting in the U.S. recently, some say dismay over the presidential election has fueled a spike in interest beyond their expectations.
Lara Godoff, a 17-year-old from Napa, California, said she scrapped any notion of staying in the U.S. the day after the election. Among other concerns, Godoff, a Democrat, said she fears Trump’s administration will ease enforcement of federal rules against sexual assault, making campuses less safe for women.
Godoff had applied to one college in Canada but added three more as safety schools after the election.
“If we live in a country where so many people could elect Donald Trump, then that’s not a country I want to live in,” she said.
I mean, if you think of it, Canada is really just one giant college safe space as it is (see Canadian ‘Minister of Women’ Opposes Self Defense… Because It’s Sexist and Canada Considers Banning ‘Offensive’ Cleveland Indians Uniforms). Here’s the thing though, I’m actually all for this. Let the whiny leftists leave the country to go to school in Canada. In fact if we can just shuffle all the snowflakes to the great white north, I’ll get a GoFundMe started. On one condition, though: they stay in Canada after they graduate. Imagine how much better America would be if it consisted mostly of people who took care of their own problems, rather than looking to government to solve everything on their behalf. Imagine how much funner everyday life would be for Americans if we didn’t hear from thousands of people who thought there was merit in continuing their butt-hurt brigade months after an election.
What a country it would be. Sure, Canada would sink to new lows in pathetic, but it’s a net gain for America. Sorry, Canada. But not sorry enough.
Having less of these diaper-clad tush-waders in America could reduce college tuition for students who actually want to learn things. Colleges could also streamline what was taught in school. Like boosting the engineering courses, maybe beef up subjects which revolved around useful ventures, like oil exploration. Math. Languages. Less so on gender studies, queer theory, and Whineage 101.
Ideas. Just ideas…
