An Island in Nova Scotia Promises to Hide Leftist Americans ‘in the Attic’ If Trump wins

Cape-Breton-Island-Nova-Scotia-Canada-8

More ‘Trophy Skulls’ for ‘Mamba!

Cape Breton Island in Nova Scotia, Canada, is turning the negative reaction to Trump into a positive: by using the increasing likelihood that he may become the next Republican presidential nominee, and possibly even president, as a marketing campaign to get Americans to move there.

“Cape Breton If Donald Trump Wins,” reads the website for the island, which is offering a refuge and life change for Americans disgruntled by the 2016 election and concerned about the implications of a Trump presidency. Residents can enjoy scenic drives, Celtic music festivals, and a diversity of languages. Also, “women can get abortions, Muslim people can roam freely, and the only ‘walls’ are holding up the roofs of our extremely affordable houses.” A team of volunteers is standing by to field questions about moving, it adds.

Sure, there’s rampant unemployment (just last year, the Canadian province lost 5,200 jobs), and a declining population, but that’s where you come in. Cape Breton needs more people, and—they argue—Americans will need a new place to live if the Donald takes office. The people behind the website probably foresaw that some might not take their offer seriously—but they insist: this is for real.

  • Just what we need more Democrats!

    • Drunk_by_Noon

      It will be like the Syrian migrant trek across Europe, and they will all be holding iPhones and lattes.
      Actually, there might be five people that come, at most.
      Leftists never make good on their promises.

  • Surele Surele

    Not one, not even ONE American will leave. We’ve heard these threats (promises?)

    before. And what happened….nothing, big fat nothing.
    And true, we don’t need them here either.

    • Clausewitz

      Typical Democrats, all talk, no action.

    • Drunk_by_Noon

      Pretty much what you said.
      Getting an American to change their nationality is like asking most others to change their religion.
      We are kind of crazy like that.

      • Surele Surele

        And I love you just for this.

      • k1962

        Mom mother has lived in Canada for 55 years and still only has American citizenship.

        • Drunk_by_Noon

          Bless her heart.

          • k1962

            She’s very patriotic and loves the U.S., but she married a Canadian and had to move here.

          • Drunk_by_Noon

            A victim of a Canadian “honeypot trap”, eh?
            😉

          • k1962

            Maybe? That’s my parents you’re talking about 😉

      • Waffle

        But we’re cousins! Cape Bretoners are the same root stock as Kentuckians — Scots/Irish. Coal mining, moonshine and hillbilly music.

        • Drunk_by_Noon

          For US and Canada, I’d say closer than cousins. I;d say brothers and sisters.
          Australia is a 1st cousin, NZ is that crazy half cousin that ran off an joined a hippy commune in the 1960’s.
          England is dad. Ireland is mom

          • Blacksmith

            Well played SIR!

    • Physics grad

      BC has plenty of aging US hippy draft dodgers

      • Surele Surele

        oops, forgot about them.

      • Surele Surele

        but… had to think about this. they left for entirely different reason. but… you’re right, they still left.

    • dance…dancetotheradio

      There are still lingering after effects of the draft dodgers presence in Canada.

      • Surele Surele

        yeah, holes in my memory were just pointed out to me few minutes ago. Oh, well. At least I know people pay attention.

        • dance…dancetotheradio

          Hey, this is our support group except we have jobs.

      • Kathy Prendergast

        No kidding; entire Canadian university departments throughout the 70s and 80s were populated by these guys, and some of the women they dragged up here with them. I never heard real “American accents” very often until I went to university. They’re all retired or dead now, but their brainwashed protegees have taken over.

    • Bingo.

  • Clausewitz

    Just as long as no Canadian taxpayer has to pay one red cent for these asshats, let then escape from reality if the locals are cool with it.

    • DD_Austin

      Yeah, we need more American cut and runners

      I think we got enough of those yellow draft dodgin’ shits in the 60s and 70s
      we don’t need more

      • Clausewitz

        It’s not that I want them in Canada. Just saying that if they do come, stick them on an isolated island so they can’t effect anyone else with their idiot progressive delirium.

        • disqusW6sf

          Then send them to Newfoundland Or PEI OR Baffin Island and so on.

          • Clink9

            Ellesmere?

          • Clausewitz

            Thinking more along the lines of Han Island. With a bit of luck the Danes can have them.

          • Kathy Prendergast

            Baffin Island is nice in the summer.

  • disqusW6sf

    Not surprising, considering Cape Breton did support the NDP.

    • tom_billesley

      Looks like Scotland, votes like Scotland?

  • luna

    It looks beautiful in the photo.

    • disqusW6sf

      In summer and early fall. They do have a heck of a winter.

  • Hard Little Machine

    Oh yeah?

  • Clink9

    Why not market some adult diapers as well for the little ninnies that pee their pants when Donnie wins.

  • dukestreet

    if they come, they’d better be entirely self supporting. there are no jobs there. We don’t want them though,they’ll destroy our beautiful cape Breton with even more of their crazy influence.

    • Drunk_by_Noon

      They are political refugees!
      Have you no heart?

      • dukestreet

        No, they are a bunch of cowards. Nobody invited me to run to the US to get away from trudeaupia. Why won’t they rescue us from the stupidity of popularity politics.

        • dance…dancetotheradio

          trudeaupia sounds like the name of a U2 record.

          • Minicapt

            … 1968, before their time …

            Cheers

            I grew up in the shadow of this feeling.

            OMG!! Go-go girls!!

          • dance…dancetotheradio

            She had nice legs that one on the left.
            Spoiled rotten for dating a highland dancer in my teens.
            Lucky me that my wife has never lost her ringette legs.
            Metis girls don’t get cellulite.

          • Waffle

            Somehow I figured you were a leg man;)

          • dance…dancetotheradio

            I have to be careful here.
            Appreciation for certain parts of the female form can get you in trouble.
            Pissing me off since my klds friends never know when to leave.
            You’ve been here three days smoking dope and you haven’t figured out that I am the one who pays the bills?
            Get the fuck out of my house.

          • Clausewitz

            Absolutely nothing wrong with that.

          • dance…dancetotheradio

            One of the best things of marriage is that we’ve got this idea that my genitals belong to her and hers belong to me.

          • Waffle

            dance . . . this is very O/T but I’m very curious about the country music festival in Dauphin and I’d like to ask you some questions if you know anything about it You can get my email from Cat.

          • dance…dancetotheradio

            I know a lot of people who have gone there over the years.
            It’s always wet and the best thing is to get a room instead of camping.
            Walking a couple of miles in beats waking up in a puddle.
            I like you Waffle, I would never steer you wrong.

          • Waffle

            Well that’s good to know. I’m still thinking about going because it might be my only chance to see both Merle and Dwight on the same bill. Dauphin just seems to be a very strange place to hold a country music festival and to have not one but two country music icons there — A Thousand Miles from Nowhere;) If I go, it would probably be just fro the Sunday — fly in, fly out, stay overnight in a hotel or b&b if I have to.

          • dance…dancetotheradio

            People I used to work with would take their vacation days just to go there.
            When you work at a hotel you don’t get that much vacation time.
            I loved those people but I had to start again and do something else.

          • dance…dancetotheradio

            Bernie Sanders has a favourite song:

  • tom_billesley

    If they expect mahometans to flee to NS from the US, they should mention the sheep.

    • andycanuck

      The federal Liberals did something earlier this week to promote goat farming I read at City Pulse’s newscrawl. Maybe they can unite the project to save money by hiring twice as many civil servants to run the one programme?

    • Kathy Prendergast

      Reminds me of what they used to say about Australia: “Cape Breton: where the men are men and sheep look nervous.”

  • Physics grad

    The last thing Canada needs is more Marxist Americans.

    So how about instead the US take back Lizzie May, who’s only contribution to Canada has been EI fraud as a student and her advocating for the Green ponzi scheme.

  • Xavier

    That’s like advertising you want VD.

  • moraywatson

    “Muslims can roam freely.” Well that’s just about the worst sales pitch I ever heard.

    • Kathy Prendergast

      Many consumers prefer their Muslims free-range and organic, apparently.

    • Kathy Prendergast

      Yes, it’s sounds disturbingly like the way the expensive roasting chickens I occasionally buy at the local market are described. I wonder if they’re organic, too?

  • andycanuck

    Once they’ve had a taste of the weather and of the “colourful” locals, I’m sure they’ll be on the first buses home like a “Syrian” refugee in February.

  • PaulW

    The dumb asses – I guess they’re desperate for tourist dollars or something. Nova Scotia has been a backwater for decades since the coal industry in particular, but also the fishing industry collapsed. Arguably, their heyday was the early 1800’s and their decline began with confederation, as the center of influence and power in Canada moved west. As it is, the rest of the country would be better off without the Maritimes dragging them down (and I say that having been born and raised in NS, incidentally.)

    • Norman_In_New_York

      Hmm. Nova Scotia salmon is still highly prized in New York, especially when smoked or pickled.

  • Minicapt

    Apparently they have learned nothing from the “Lizzie May Story”.

    Cheers

  • On Cape Breton, who would notice?

  • Edubeat

    It was done as a joke, probably more so as advertising for a tourist destination. than political. Lots of room in Cape Breton for Yanks with real greenbacks to come and visit. Exchange real dollar value for Canadian pesos

  • Kathy Prendergast

    Great idea; let thousands of them in and experience the joy of them “roaming freely” into your back and front yard to relieve themselves, and into your kitchen to help themselves to the contents of your fridge.

    So if Trump wins, can we all go live in Hawaii?
