The potential catalyst for turning red-blooded Americans into maple chasers.

Anton La Vey, Scott Cunningham, Ayn Rand – oh, the follies of youth!
Since the primaries began, more and more Americans are considering a relocation, so much so that there have been notable spikes in Google searches about immigrating to Canada.
Now, there's even a fucking dating website that will link up disenfranchised Americans with Canadians.
If you’ve seen the meatbot, the walking automaton, the pod-people, the dense, glazy-eyed substrate through which living organisms such as myself must escape to reach air and sunlight.
If you’ve realized that if speech is to be regarded as a cognitive function, technically they aren’t speaking, and you don’t have to listen.
About 4,200 people have signed up on a waitlist to use it, 70 percent of whom are Canadians.
Though the site hinges on the concept of pairing people based on their citizenships, it also will consider compatibility much in the way that any dating site does.
For a group of people who think Canada is full of igloos (I can say this as an American living in Toronto), ya'll seem pretty obsessed with living here all of a sudden.
Maple is the newest site to directly capitalize on this concept, promising to "make dating great again." Though the Texas-based owner of the site has promised that it is supposed to aid more in finding love than a passport, the subtext of marriage for citizenship is hard to ignore.
The site is currently emblazoned with the following promise: "Maple Match makes it easy for Americans to find the ideal Canadian partner to save them from the unfathomable horror of a Trump presidency." If you want to see "unfathomable horror," though, look no further than the slew of bureaucratic bullshit that follows attempting to gain residency in Canada by marrying a citizen.
