American voters watch US Election Day results ,triggers crash of Canadian immigration website
Ontario,Nov9:The one-stop shop for Canadian hopefuls slowed to a crawl late Tuesday as droves of disenchanted Americans inundated the immigration website.
The Immigration and Citizen portal sputtered, repeatedly crashing as Election Day results showed Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump snagging wins in Ohio, Florida and Missouri.
A spokesperson for Canadian immigration did not immediately respond to a request for comment on the website problems.
