Canada’s immigration website crashes due to heavy traffic

Canada’s Citizenship and Immigration website crashed for a few minutes on the night of the presidential election.

The site reportedly went down for a few minutes due to heavy traffic around 11 p.m., shortly after Republican nominee Donald Trump was projected to win the battlegrounds of Florida and Ohio. The site was back up and running as of 11:04 p.m.

Visitors to the site were met with an error message.

The crash created a firestorm on Twitter, where many had joked about moving to Canada if Trump defeated Dem nominee Hillary Clinton.
