The reasons Americans want to move to Canada are the reasons it's really hard to do it
Happy Canada Day! Don't get your hopes up about emigrating.
By Dara Lind

Maybe, at first, you were joking. Maybe you’ve caught yourself since then wondering if it would truly be such a bad idea.

After all, America may well elect Donald J. Trump president in November. Maybe you really should move to Canada.

You probably wouldn’t be alone. You’re certainly not alone now: The Canadian government’s immigration website crashed the day after Donald Trump swept the Super Tuesday primaries, under the force of thousands of Americans Google searching “move to Canada.”

Syrian refugee celebrates 'amazing' 1st Canada Day in B.C.
Yaseen Alhomsi arrived in Vancouver after being separated from his father for 15 years

Yaseen Alhomsi is celebrating his first Canada Day in Vancouver with his family after arriving in Canada seven months ago.

“It’s amazing,” he said while standing in the heart of Canada Place wearing a red and white scarf. “This day is a special day for me.”

The Syrian refugee said July 1 will now mark a new tradition in his family where they will go Vancouver’s waterfront to celebrate with thousands of others.

“When you see all people celebrating this day, all immigrants — we feel as we are the same as all Canadians.”

Last December, Alhomsi and his brother Majd had an emotional reunion at YVR with their father, Mamon Alhomsi, after being separated for 15 years.

Since then, the family has been adjusting to life in Canada.

Alhomsi, who was tortured and imprisoned in Syria, said finding a job and starting school in Canada were dreams come true.

“I had been waiting for this moment for 15 years and now we are here celebrating with Canadians to share their culture and our culture together,” he said.

While proudly waving his maple leaf flag, Alhomsi said being Canadian to him means acceptance and equality.

“I’m working here, I’m studying here, and now I’m celebrating the same days and same events — that means we are all the same and we are all equal in Canada,” he said.

“It means you accept all people … you live in a safe place and you have a stable future.”
