Mexican Flag Hung On Top of Trump Tower in Vancouver Canada

Construction worker Diego Reyna hung a Mexican flag at the top of Trump Tower in Vancouver, BC, Canada to assert that people of all ethnicities have contributed their time and labour to Donald Trump's business success.

Reyna, a Mexican Canadian, hung the Mexican flag on the roof top of the nearly completed Trump Tower, located on Georgia Street in downtown Vancouver, last Saturday.

He says that he pulled off the stunt because he was getting tired of hearing the buildings namesake, Donald Trump, making comments and generalizations about Mexicans during his Republican presidential campaign.

"I put a Mexican flag on the roof of the Trump Tower in Vancouver, just to show that he is benefiting from us and that we are working hard on his projects and that we are not all criminals," said Reyna.

The Port Moody, British Columbia resident hung the flag on Saturday, April 9, 2016 and then posted a photo of himself with it on social media.

By Sunday morning though the flag had been taken down, but much to his surprise, in that one Saturday night, his picture was shared more than 700 times.

"Look at that building, look how beautiful it is and that is a result of a coordination of all the ethnic groups in Canada," he said, even though he has not been employed on the project.

"I've seen every race and every religion working in that building."

Reyna hopes his message of "love and unity," will reach Mr. Trump.

The owner of Vancouver Trump building, Holborn Group, stated it would not comment on matters related to U.S. politics or Reyna's stunt while the tower, and others bearing Trump's name, have become controversial.
