Democrats Didn't Escapte to Canada

Despite post-election talk, Democrats did not flock to Canada after the November election. Reuter's reports:

Canadians can put away those extra welcome mats-- it seems Americans unhappy about the result of last November’s presidential election have decided to stay at home after all.

In the days after President Bush won a second term, the number of U.S. citizens visiting Canada’s main immigration Web site shot up sixfold, prompting speculation that unhappy Democrats would flock north.

But official statistics show the number of Americans actually applying to live permanently in Canada fell in the six months after the election.
