Rumours of the Guvernment closing has been circulating for years. But with the recent closing of the Warldorf hotel for condo development in Vancouver and news of the Ministry of Sound currently under threat from condo development next door, the rumour that one of Canada's most popular clubs closing does not seem completely far fetched as once thought.

Arnej seems convinced that Guvernment is closing its doors but without official confirmation from Ink (the owners of Guv and many other Toronto properties), this will remain just a rumour for now.
