Why Burlington is the Perfect New Home for Trump-Dodgers

Terrified of Donald Trump becoming president? Of course you are. Canada is here for you. So why not make Burlington your new home?

We know the drill. We’ve seen this before. We brace for a mass exodus, as America somehow elects a lunatic into office. Canada saw a 20 per cent year-over-year increase in new residents from the U.S. during the “W” years.

“How to move to Canada” Google searches spiked by 1000% in the US after Trump’s Super Tuesday win last week. So let’s take a look at why Trump-fleeing Americans should make Burlington part of their exit strategy.

We’re Canada’s #1 Mid-Sized City

Burlington has been named the best mid-sized city in Canada by Moneysense magazine for the last 3 years in a row.

Their criteria included things like:

  • Education
  • Public Health care (This one will really blow your mind)
  • Safety
  • Economic stability

We Build Schools and Hospitals. Not Giant Friggin’ Walls

Our schools are first-rate (check out how Burlington schools rank) and growing each year with the addition of new schools such as Dr. Frank J Hayden Secondary and plans to expand Alton Village Public School.

At the same time, Burlington is also committing $60 million to the redevelopment and expansion of Joseph Brant Hospital. The facility already treats over 250,000 patients each year, with plans to add:

  • 172 acute inpatient beds
  • A new emergency department
  • A larger cancer clinic
  • Nine new operating rooms
  • Expanded medical, surgical and outpatient services

We’re the Best Place to Raise Kids

We all want our children to grow up in a Trump-free society.

Well, it just so happens that Today’s Parent recently reported that Burlington was named the #2 best place to raise a family in Canada.

Burlington offers:

  • Average monthly daycare cost: $1,222
  • Families with kids: 54.1%
  • Parks in every neighbourhood
  • Safest Community in Canada with populations over 100,000

We’re Close to Nearly Everything

We’re about half an hour away from the US-Canadian border. So you can easily go back to visit, and tell your old friends how great it is to live in a country not ruled by a megalomaniac that looks like the wax dummy version of himself.

We’re also close to:

Toronto (40 minutes):

You can easily experience Canada’s liveliest city, without having to live there. It’s a short drive away, and many commuters just hop on the Go-Train to head right downtown to Union Station.

Universities (40-45):

You can send your kids to world-class schools like The University of Guelph, Laurier, The University of Toronto or York.

Blue Mountain (1 hour 30 minutes):

Ontario’s premier ski resort and winter funland.

Lakes, Beaches and Cottages (Just drive for a bit. You’ll find one):

Ontario has approximately 250,000 lakes and over 100,000 kilometres (62,000 mi) of rivers. Many are a short drive away.
