    A Canadian island is urging Americans to make it their new home should Republican presidential front-runner Donald Trump win the White House in November.

    “Hi Americans!” a statement on a tourism website for Cape Breton Island, Nova Scotia, reads. "Donald Trump may become the next president of your country. If that happens, and you decide to get the hell out of there, might I suggest moving to Cape Breton Island?"



    The statement adds: "Don’t wait until Election Day to find somewhere else to live!
    “Start now – that way, on Election Day, you just hop on a bus to start your new life in Cape Breton, where women can get abortions, Muslim people can roam freely and the only ‘walls’ are holding up the roofs of our extremely affordable houses.”

    The website then explained its rationale for seeking potential American residents disgusted by the prospect of a Trump administration.

    “We are an island about the same size as the Hawaiian Big Island on the east coast of Canada,” its statement reads. "We always rank high on travel magazine lists of beautiful islands, but we are experiencing a bit of a population problem at the moment.

    “We need people [and] we need you! This is not a joke! See for yourself – you belong here on Cape Breton Island, where healthcare is free, you know your neighbors and they look out for you and nobody has a hand gun.”

    Cape Breton Island also details some of its unique features as a North Atlantic tourist destination.

    “In Cape Breton, we value diversity,” its tourism site reads. "Here, you can hear a number of other languages, like French and Mi’kmaq, even Gaelic! But everybody speaks English, too, just like you.

    “Yes, this is Canada, but Cape Breton isn’t frozen all year round! Our summers are delightful with highs in the 80-degree range. Winters here are very similar to the Northeast USA."

    I've already looked into moving to Canada if Trump wins, LOL! Haven't looked at Cape Brenton.

    This is actually a good topic. To all the Canadian members here: Where is the best place to live in Canada?

    Perhaps the #blacklivesmatter patriots would be happier there?

    Anywhere on the east coast. The west coast is too expensive. Cape Breton is nice, very scenic but is a wasteland in Winter. Halifax is an amazing little city that would appeal to most of you.

    No I don't.

    I've been a citizen my entire life. There's no way I'd want to become a subject.

    The only thing you would be a subject of is ridicule.

    It all depends. East coast is beautiful but the economy is horrid. The big cities are nice but the cost of housing is outrageous (Vancouver and Toronto). It all depends on what you want. I personally won't move to the east coast as good jobs are scarce and taxes are through the roof.

    What about suburbs? Are the housing prices doable within commuting distance?

    I'm in Southern Ontario. I went to Cape Breton years ago. We trailered the bike and rode the Cabot trail. The word amazing doesn't do it justice.
    I wouldn't know about living there though. I know their taxes are different than here, and I wouldn't know about employment etc because we just went to visit friends and tour the place.
    Apparently Ontario is a great place to live. We've got 4 beautiful seasons, great beaches, lots of job opportunities, etc etc.
    Personally I would rather be back home in England, but I really can't complain about Ontario.

    I don't doubt it. Nevertheless, it remains the case that rights and freedoms are more difficult to surrender once you've had them than they are to demand if you've never known them before.

    Why would they want to get away from someone who'd be willing to lay down his life in defense of them and their families?
