Over 100 people gathered on West Georgia Street in Vancouver yesterday morning to peacefully protest the grand opening of the Trump Tower.

“I came to show my love and spread kindness and to [ask him] not be a bully to the rest of the world,” said protester Henry Ho while speaking with CBC. “I feel he’s lost in hate, lost in ego and lost in insanity,” protester Kelly Shearers explained to the source.

According to the article, dozens of sticky notes with messages like “Not Welcome in Vancouver” were stuck to the outside of the hotel. The protesters chanted “We want peace” and sang O Canada while police watched on.

Inside, the President’s sons, Eric and Donald Jr., were in attendance. Each spoke before taking part in the ribbon cutting ceremony. Eric called Vancouver an “amazing city befitting of the Trump brand” while Donald Jr. told the assembled media – who were not permitted to ask questions during the event – “I’d like to thank the press — just kidding.”
