The New Trump Towers Are Staying in Vancouver And People Are Pissed AF

As many Americans are dumping Donald Trump as their presidential candidate, Vancouverites are also ready to see the Trump name leave the city. Trump Towers Vancouver has stirred up almost as much controversy as The Donald himself, with many locals protesting outside its doors. A study done by the Angus Reid Institute shows that 60% of people in Metro Vancouver want the Trump name off towers in both Toronto and Vancouver.

The hotel was initially set to open in August, but suspiciously keeps getting pushed further back as Trump continues his provocative and uncensored presidential campaign. In an attempt to create some excitement over the new hotel opening, Holborn Group (the builders responsible for the hotel) has created a contest to win a VIP experience at the grand opening,  but the response has been met with a giant GTFO!

Trump’s racist, homophobic, and anti-Islamic remarks have never really sat well with the citizens of Vancouver but in light of the Access Hollywood interview from 2005, where he glorified assault on women – locals have said enough is enough!

Sorry @TrumpVancouver I'd sooner have a root canal. https://t.co/onPbxSbmPl

Justin Trudeau Just Promised To Crack Down On 'Mobs' Protesting In Health Care Settings

If elected, he says the Liberals would move to criminalize blocking health care buildings.

"The Liberal Party of Canada, if reelected to form government, will make it a criminal offence to block access to buildings that provide health care," said Trudeau while in Vancouver on September 13. "Whether that's hospitals, clinics, abortion clinics, pharmacies, testing centres, it is not OK that across the country, hospitals are having to put up barricades today to manage the mobs coming their way."
