The ganging up on Donald Trump in Vancouver continues with two big political figures saying his brand should not be welcome in the city.
Vancouver mayor Gregor Robertson has written a letter to Holborn CEO Joo Kim Tiah, saying Trump’s comments “remind us of much darker times in our world’s past,” adding that more than 50,000 people have signed the e-petition to remove his name a tower planned for West Georgia Street.
“Trump’s recent comments really undermine all the work we do for inclusivity for diversity for a multicultural city.”
Also weighing in to beat up the Donald is Premier Christy Clark.
“Donald Trump does not represent our city. I guess if I was in business I would probably be taking the bet that maybe Donald Trump wouldn’t be good business in Canada for quite a while longer.”
However both add that the final call is the developers who so far has downplayed the controversy.
Tiah said in a statement last week that Holborn has “contractual obligations” to Trump’s organization, and “these legally binding contracts cannot be altered.”
