LAist read the Los Angeles Time's rather perfunctory 12/10/04 article on about Americans moving to Canada in the wake of this year's election results.Favorite quotation so far:
Sitting near the back of the room, the Griggs family of Oxnard — brother Bill, sister Kelly and their 72-year old mother, Joan, listened intently. Joan Griggs said she's tired of being surrounded by immigrants and wants to leave. "We'll go somewhere where we're the immigrants," she said. Kelly, 43, said she wants to move because housing in Canada is more affordable and the people are nicer.

Let's hope the kind people of Canada are not as bigoted as her mother.
