If Donald Trump wins the presidency, there's definitely one place out there that will be welcoming fleeing Americans with open arms: Canada's Cape Breton Island. The rural Nova Scotia island is angling to solve Americans' impending Trump problem by inviting anyone who wants to "get the hell out of there" to move to the island.

Cape Breton Island even has a website laying out the offer, complete with specifics on how life on the island would be better than life in an America led by Trump. "Don't wait until Donald Trump is elected president to find somewhere else to live!" the website reads. "Start now, that way, on election day, you just hop on a bus to start your new life in Cape Breton, where women can get abortions, Muslim people can roam freely, and the only 'walls' are holding up the roofs of our extremely affordable houses." Moreover, the website says, healthcare is free, you can get paid leave for nearly a year if you have a baby, and, although it is Canada, it's not really that cold.

The offer isn't purely out of the goodness of Cape Breton's heart, though. Getting more people to move to the island would also help to solve its current population problem. Rural Nova Scotia has seen its population dwindle over the past three decades as young people leave in search of better opportunities and its staple industries of mining and fishing struggle.

So, would you rather: Move to a remote fishing island in Nova Scotia, or live in an America with a President Donald Trump?
