A Boomer Home Companion

Are Americans really going to flee to Canada after Trump win? Before this week's stunning election result, many Americans, including Boomers, declared their intentions, perhaps jokingly, that they would flee to Canada if Donald Trump pulled off a win for U.S. president. As Trump continued to rack up votes late Tuesday and into Wednesday, it appeared that many of them might be serious. The Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada website crashed around 11 p.m. on Tuesday due to what a department spokesperson called "a significant increase in the volume of traffic." Since then, the department has confirmed that visitors from the U.S. accounted for half of that surge. And so, I'm going to interview someone who is an expert on knowing exactly what it will take for Boomers, their families, and friends to move to Canada. Immigration lawyer, Sandra Hakanson will join me.. Legendary Canadian singer-songwriter Leonard Cohen, rock music's man of letters whose songs fused religious imagery with themes of redemption and sexual desire, earning him critical and popular acclaim, has died at the age of 82, according to a Facebook post on his official page. We'll pay tribute to this Canadian icon in music and words.
