DETROIT – Google searches for “how to move to Canada” spiked 1,500 percent Tuesday night after Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton dominated the primaries.

Canada’s immigration website also was bogged down creating a rather interesting trend online.

Justin Jones serves coffee and is considering moving to Canada.

“If I have a president treating a class of people a certain way because of the color of their skin, I wouldn’t be comfortable staying in that type of country,” Jones said.

A number of celebrities have vowed to also move if Donald Trump is elected including Jon Stewart, Al Sharpton, Samuel L. Jackson and Whoopie Goldberg.

Detroit immigration attorney Enrico Caruso said Americans make the move all the time, usually for work or school.

“People are going to look at Canada as our brother and say, ‘I’d rather live there than here with a person not moving the country forward,’” Caruso said.

Sade Haddock is from Columbus, Ohio and moved to Canada for school.

“If Donald Trump wins, I’m staying here,” Haddock said. “I’m not going back to the States.”
