      While rallies are being organized to protest the arrival of the Trump sons for the opening of the Trump Tower in Vancouver next week, another protest has been raging online against another Trump offspring.

      Canadian shoppers are pressuring Canadian retailer Hudson's Bay to drop the Ivanka Trump brand.

      The Bay sells apparel, shoes, and jewelry from Ivanka Trump's company.

      On social media, consumers have been using the #Baycott hashtag to express their desire to see the Hudson's Bay drop the brand.

      The Grab Your Wallet campaign lists a number of retailers that sell products related to the Trump family, including Hudson's Bay, Winners, Walmart, Macy's, Bloomingdale's, Amazon, and Bed, Bath, and Beyond.

      Meanwhile, Nordstrom announced on February 2 that it decided to stop carrying the Ivanka Trump line, citing poor sales.

      However, as he did with Lockheed Martin, General Motors, and Toyota, Donald Trump lashed out at Nordstrom on social media.

      While Nordstrom's stock initially dropped after the president's tweet, unlike the other companies Trump has attacked, Nordstrom's stock value actually rebounded to gain more than before.

      Neiman Marcus and Burlington Coat Factory have discontinued selling the Ivanka Trump brand online while Sears and Kmart have stopped selling items online from the Trump Home collection.

      In response to an inquiry from CBC News, Hudson's Bay did not indicate whether or not it would do the same.
