Canadian officials made clear on Wednesday that any U.S. citizens so fed up with Bush that they want to make a fresh start up north would have to stand in line like any other would-be immigrants — a wait that can take up to a year.
“You just can’t come into Canada and say ‘I’m going to stay here’. In other words, there has to be an application. There has to be a reason why the person is coming to Canada,” said immigration ministry spokeswoman Maria Iadinardi.
I seriously had the impression I could just drive up to Oh Canada! today and take a permanent vacation. I bet others thought that also haha… silly me.
