It may seem like a quiet country where not much happens besides ice hockey, curling and beer drinking. But our neighbor to the north is proving to be quite the draw for thousands of disgruntled Americans.
The number of U.S. citizens who moved to Canada last year hit a 30-year high, with a 20 percent increase over the previous year and almost double the number who moved in 2000.

Recently I was returning to Canada after a few days in the US. Unfortunately, I couldn’t fly back, as it was a little far for me to get to the airport and the bus was far easier. Getting near the Canadian border I spent most of my time talking with the bus driver, as he was extra friendly and obviously Canadian. At the border we lost two young men in their early 20s. They were refused entry into Canada. I honestly had never seen the Canadian border guards so aggressive and felt intimidated coming home to the Promised Land even though my entry only took a few seconds. We waited an hour at the border, which later caused me to miss my connecting train in Toronto. The driver went on to tell me his recent experiences at the border. He said he loses at least 2 every trip of Americans escaping to Canada. He sometimes loses more. One of his co-workers lost all 53 passengers on one trip and only the driver made it across! It seems there is an epidemic of Americans trying to escape the impending doom. I mean who told them to run? Was it God? There own common sense? They never listened to me before when I preached about the coming end to America. The Canadian border is shut down to Americans by the looks of it. Its funny, I saw many times when God showed me the coming judgments he also showed me that none would escape. It is clear that if you are destined to escape, God will provide a way and if you are destined to go through the fire you will not escape.
