Was Canada the real winner after Super Tuesday?
As the dust settled following Super Tuesday, it looked like Trump and Clinton were the ones who won the night.
But as the results were revealed, it appeared that Canada may have been somewhat of the outright winner.
Why? Because as it became apparent that Trump was on track to get the Republican nomination, many people were looking into emigrating to Canada.
Lots and lots of people used the search term “How to move to Canada”, which spiked at 1,500 percent of the usual rate at midnight on Tuesday, according to the Washington Post.
So many people searched for information on how to move to Canada, that the Canadian Government’s immigration website experienced delays.
Last week, Trudeau confirmed plans to attend this year’s Pride parade in Toronto – making him the first Canadian prime minister to do so.
However, this will not be his first time at the event.
Trudeau has attended Pride parades in Toronto and Vancouver for years – but never as leader of the country.
Canada’s new PM has shown himself as a strong supporter of equal rights since being sworn into office.
In November, the government promised to take in a substantial amount of gay refugees from war-torn Syria.
The proud LGBT ally also demonstrated his commitment to equality by naming a diverse, gender-balanced cabinet.
In contrast, Trump told Fox News he would likely back a plot to overturn equal marriage, just days before telling the lesbian journalist he would “move forward” on LGBT rights.
When challenged on the contradiction in a third interview, Trump attempted to maintain both contradicting views simultaneously.
He promised evangelicals last week: “I think [evangelicals] can trust me on traditional marriage.”
Those in the US hoping to move across the border may need to act quickly – Trump isn’t a fan of migration and has proposed a wall to be built at the Mexican border.
