Take off, eh.
Via Fox News:
Bryan Cranston is the latest star to threaten to make the Niagara Falls Border Crossing. The subject has been a hot topic of conversation on social media but several celebs who have previously been reported as threatening to move to Canada never, in fact, made the promise. (Samuel L. Jackson reckons a Trump win will see him move to South Africa, while Cher has said she’ll decamp to Jupiter.)
But here is Heat Street’s definitive guide to 10 stars who have said they’ll go to Canada if the election doesn’t go their way. Of course don’t count on anyone actually decamping to Justin Trudeau’s liberal utopia (the celebrity relocation political pledge track record, typified by Alec Baldwin’s unfulfilled promise to leave America if George W. Bush got elected President in 2000, is notoriously poor).
1. Lena Dunham
The “Girls” writer-actress said she was deadly serious about moving to Canada but then made it sound like she would do it as much for professional reasons as political ones. “I know a lot of people have been threatening to do this, but I really will [move to Canada],” Dunham told Andy Cohen at the Matrix Awards in April, as reported by The Hollywood Reporter’s Ashley Lee. “I know a lovely place in Vancouver and I can get my work done from there.”

2. Raven Symone
The actress, while she was co-hosting “The View,” declared in February she is “literally” going to Canada: “My confession for this election is if any Republican gets nominated, I’m gonna move to Canada with my entire family. Is that bad?” she rhetorically asked. “I already have my ticket … No, I literally bought my ticket, I swear.”
