CTV News reports:
It appears the days of having the controversial Trump name emblazoned on a prominent hotel tower in downtown Vancouver are coming to an end, with a staff member at the Trump International Hotel confirming Friday that the hotel is closing.
The hotel on Georgia Street between Bute and Thurlow has been controversial for its name since opening its doors in Vancouver amid a flurry of protests in 2017.
Documents from the Office of the Superintendent of Bankruptcy Canada obtained by CTV News show the hotel operator, TA Hotel Management Ltd., filed for bankruptcy on Thursday. The first meeting of creditors is expected on Sept. 16.
