Something lighter to start the day…

A new dating website is offering to pair Americans with Canadian singles to save them from a Donald Trump presidency.
MapleMatch.com promises love and a U.S. escape plan if Trump becomes commander-in-chief.

CEO Joe Goldman says 4,150 people have signed up for the site — 70 per cent of them Canadian.

The Texas-based Goldman says he hatched the idea while watching Trump’s “Super Tuesday” victories in March.
During the primaries, American Google searches for “move to Canada” hit record numbers.

There was a time not long ago when I would have been excoriating Goldman, the site, and Canada but, hey kids, new normal.

The splash page speaks of “the unfathomable horror of a Trump presidency” but the real discontent flowing through America at the moment has more to do with the unfathomable horror of either front-runner getting elected.

Also, not to get too nit-picky, but what happens to Canada if America implodes? It’s not like the British Empire is there to defend it anymore. The over/under on it becoming a Russian province is maybe three years.

Maybe.
