American Celebrities look to the North as Trump gains traction

Actress Lena Dunham has now joined the throngs of American residents threatening to move to Canada if Donald Trump is elected president of the United States, Global News BC recently reported.

Dunham, known for her HBO series Girls, is just the latest celebrity to suggest that the election of Trump will force a move North, with Global showing other examples such as Samuel L. Jackson, Rosie O’Donnell and Jon Stewart.

As for Dunham, she has her sights set specifically on Vancouver, quoted as saying “I know a lovely place in Vancouver and I can get my work done from there,” and adding that while others have been merely threatening to move, “I really will.”

As a partner at one of B.C.’s top immigration law firms with a long-running career in advising individuals and businesses on immigration matters, Maynard Kischer Stojicevic’s Rudolf Kischer was once again sought out by Global to give an expert opinion on how serious people are about these threats and the history of Americans proposing mass immigration to Canada.

“We saw thousands more people immigrate to Canada when George W. Bush got elected for a second term. So, there was a big increase in the numbers moving,” Rudolf told Global News. “But, you know, people were very unhappy with the politics going on in the states.”

Rudolf also told Global, MKS Immigration and Citizenship Law has been getting inquiries from Americans about the process for immigrating to Canada.

Back when Trump was just starting to gain traction in his bid to be U.S. Republican Party leader, people were already getting worried and seeking advice from MKS, Rudolf told the Globe and Mail earlier this year.
