Campbell River's Coast Discovery Inn was supposed to stay open forever

When the Coast Discovery Inn opened 51 years ago, the keys were thrown into the ocean in a symbolic gesture that the hotel doors should never be closed.

Now the current owner of the hotel is threatening to break that promise.

Perfect, just in the time for the new hotel to start construction in Nanaimo.

There is a new hotel being built right near the Discovery right now.  Funny, how the article also says staff are scrambling to decertify the union in hopes of saving their jobs.  Perhaps what the owner was hoping for.

 

Campbell River's construction values hit $101 million in 2013

 

 

Highlights of construction in 2013

·Major builds from the Berwick residential project, Seymour Pacific head office, and the new downtown hotel with several other major projects, drove the construction value increase.

·The number of building permits for single-family homes increased by 19 per cent (to 133 in 2013 from 112 in 2012).

·Commercial construction value grew by 45 per cent.

·Multi-family residential value increased by 43 per cent over 2012.

The hotel is re-opening.  No word in the article if the union is gone.

The rookies at Daily Hive also fail to realize the hotel ownership is not changing, it's just the management group that runs them on behalf of owners that's changing hands.

 

One of Western Canada’s largest hotel chains has been acquired by a large Japanese hotel company for $210 million.

Vancouver-based Coast Hotels announced yesterday that it is now owned by APA Hotel Group, which has 373 ‘urban-style’ hotel properties across Japan and one property in the United States. The acquisition of Coast Hotels’ 38 properties in Western North America pushes APA’s hotel portfolio to over 400 properties across the world.

 

 

38 hotels at $210M should have been a trigger.

I demand that the City of Victoria get involved and hold a vote.

The Apa Group finds itself once again facing international criticism, this time for anti-Semitic comments made in a magazine distributed to five group-owned hotels in Canada, including an additional one that is leased.

 

In the February edition of the group’s magazine Apple Town, provided to guests at Canada’s Coast Hotels, Apa Hotels founder Toshio Motoya is quoted as saying: “Jewish people control American information, finance, and laws, and they benefit greatly from globalization because they move their massive profits to tax havens so they don’t have to pay any taxes. Many Jewish people support the Democratic Party.”

 

The real estate entrepreneur made the comments in an article bearing the subtitle: “An American counteroffensive against Jewish globalism.” This was part of an interview under the broader title of “Trump’s Presidency is an Opportunity for Constitutional Reform,” focused on the election of U.S. president Donald Trump and what it means for Japan.
