#Calexit! California Wants to Join Canada (and Canadians Are into It!)
While some folks are protesting Trump’s election and others are just doing their best to comfort each other, there are those who are ready to pack up and leave. Or rather, they’re ready to split from the States and join our northern neighbors. If you have any friends on the west coast, you might want to give ‘em a wave goodbye, because California wants to join Canada (and Canadians are totally into the idea).
Plenty of peeps in the country’s most populous state (as well as the third most extensive by area) are ready to secede and join our neighbors to the north, who are perceived to be more progressive and liberal than the US in its current sitch. The movement has even sparked its own hashtag: #Calexit.
