Canada tightens border ahead of Obama-Romney showdown
Canada is tightening security along its border amid concerns of a mass migration of illegal Americans after the US Presidential election, according to The New Yorker's satirical Borowitz Report.
A fictional Royal Canadian Mounted Police deputy commissioner is quoted as saying that border patrols have been keeping an eye out due to increasing "chatter" about escaping to Canada.
“We’ve been intercepting troubling comments from some very freaked-out people,” he commented. “Most of it has been on NPR call-in shows.”
Blogs such as If Romney wins, I'm moving to Canada have been appearing as the November 6 election draws closer.
He also issued this warning to Americans who might try to cross into Canada illegally: “If you drive a Prius, you will be stopped.”
As for Americans trying to pass as Canadians, he warned that it is "very difficult, if not impossible, to pretend to like hockey.”
