It is fake news. It is sensationalized bullshit, plain and simple. When someone "flees" they are leaving against their will. They do not WANT to leave, they HAVE to leave. You flee a category 5 hurricane bearing down on your city. People were fleeing the route 91 harvest festival in Las Vegas because a madman was mowing them down. Lets not minimize the word "fleeing" by applying it to two yuppie douchebags who WANTED to leave. Their lives were not in peril. They were not going to be deported. They were not facing years in the gulag. No one was pursuing them. No one is pursuing them. No one cares that they left. I am glad that they left. My only regret is that they did not take all those other dipshits that claimed that they would leave the U.S. if Trump won with them.

They wanted to leave and they left. They did not "flee" anything. They made plans and took a whole year to leave. No news story here at all. The fact that someone would actually leave their own country because their candidate did not win sums up what a bunch of whiny self entitled assholes these people really are. Good riddance to bad rubbish. Anyhow they are your problem now.


It took a whole year to go through the immigration process. That’s actually pretty quick often it takes up more like 2 years.

“Flee” can simply mean leaving an undesirable situation. It doesn’t have to mean life in danger. Besides choice of words for a headline and technical definitions of a single word used don’t automatically make a true story fake news.

I hope the couple enjoys their new home. I hear Halifax is a beautiful place and that it's the Victoria of the Maritimes. [B-o]

I’m pretty sure moving to Canada from the US South is its own reward

Yes it does. :)

You chumps constantly whine about how some other agencies write headlines
and include inflammatory content, but now when the alt lefties and the CBC does it, you
get all pious and upset.

You obviously haven't been paying attention.

Rational people object when the 'media' issues stories and headlines that are actually false. Irrational people retweet those same headlines, and then bitch about them while not noticing they are false. Shall I give examples? ;)

This headline is accurate, and the story is true. But in alt-rightie speak, it is 'fake news'. How can it be 'fake news', if it actually happened? Just because you don't like the idea that the US is becoming unwelcoming to minorities, doesn't change that it is. :idea:

Even the POTUS today is using racist language FFS!

These Triggered Snowflakes can pound sand! Maybe if they took the 2016 election more serious Trump wouldn't have won. Instead they couldn't take the time to wait in line to cast a vote yet they have no problem camping with a tent in a line to buy the latest IPhone. :roll:

Triggered Snowflakes Hypocrites had no problem when in the aftermath of the Haitian Earthquake SOC Clinton used the tragedy to benefit the Clinton Foundation with pay-to-play via it's a gold mine. Yes it's a shithole Country thanks to the Clintons.

People who are fleeing tyranny, death and destruction don't normally make the statement Mr. Vargas made at 0:36 of the video and I quote:

"we jokingly said, I guess it's time to move to Canada".

Nor do people who are fleeing, tyranny, death and destruction normally say that they did their "research" about the country they intend to relocate to and then say they "chose" that country because at 1.06 of the video he says:

"we did our research about Canada and found their ideals aligned more greatly with ours"


So people can make claims all they want about how he fled but, unless we can see the CBC interview to verify his claim about being threatened and fearing for his life, Mr. Vargas and his wife come across as just more Americans who bailed on their country because they, like the thousands before them didn't like the result of an Republican won election and decided to find a country that they thought was more conducive to their political and moral ideals.

So, in the end Mr. Vargas and his wife may have left America because of Donald Trump but they certainly didn't "flee" their country because of him like the CBC claims. Their move was a calculated and time consuming affair.

You shouldn't take a video shot a year after the one I describe as the only truth.

I tried to dig up that original one, but couldn't find it on 'The National' Youtube channel. The tone of it was quite a bit different than the BBC interview conducted recently, that I posted above.

Retarded USSA(tm) couples move to Canada all of the time as coping mechanisms for their unsound paranoias or simply to elope.

Keep up the good work! The public must be distracted!!

“Inflamatory”? Because they said “flee”? You sound like a triggered snowflake. Flee just means to run away from something: flee indoors from the rain. Flee to a quiet area of the house. Etc.
