Pokemon Go is live in Canada...sort of. Mere minutes after Pokemon Go was made available for download in the Canadian Google Play and Apple App stores, the game's servers crashed for a second consecutive day.

While Pokemon Go has proven to be enormously popular, the game has been plagued with near constant server issues. Pokemon Go's servers were down for large periods during its first week of release due to the large amount of users playing the game. While the servers went down again yesterday after being introduced to 26 European countries, the issues were allegedly due to a DDOS attack from a hacking group.

It is unknown if today's server crash is tied to the Canada launch, or if the game has experienced another DDOS attack.
