Only 600 percent?

Since everyone we know is considering moving to Canada rather than face another four years in Bush hell, it surprises us that Canada's main immigration Web site has received only 600 percent more hits in the past week. According to Reuters, the Web site (www.cic.gc.ca) received 115,016 hits from U.S. computers last Wednesday--95,000 more than normal.

The good news is that Canada still wants us. The province of Ottawa alone is seeking to attract between 220,000 and 240,000 immigrants in 2005. Immigration ministry spokeswoman Maria Iadinardi said, "Let's face it, we have a population of a little over 32 million and we definitely need permanent residents to come to Canada. If we could meet (the 2005) target and go above it, the more the merrier."

And they would all be liberals...
