Most Canadians want Trump's name off Toronto hotel

According to a new Angus Reid poll, most Canadians want Donald Trump's name removed from towers in Toronto and Vancouver.

As Global New reports, 62 per cent of respondents in Toronto, Montreal and Vancouver want to dump the Trump name. In total, 56 per cent of all Canadians agree that developers in Canada should stop using Trump's moniker.

Interestingly, the poll also revealed that 74 per cent of Canadians agree that Trump's campaign is getting too much attention.

Earlier this month, Toronto City Councillor Josh Matlow tweeted: "I believe the owners of Toronto's Trump Tower should change its name. Toronto is a diverse & respectful city. Donald Trump is a fascist," after Trump issues one of his many insensitive statements.

Talon International Development Inc. owns Toronto's Trump International Hotel and Tower. After the controversy erupted, Talon's PR consultants issued a statement. "The Trump Organization is the operator of the Hotel, not the owner. Donald Trump's opinions as a private citizen in no way reflect the position of the company's views or those of its other investors and owners," they said.
