(BURNABY, BC) – A woman was upset and started throwing out racist slurs and being rude with employees at a Shoppers Drug Mart.
Allen Tseng posted the video to Facebook in which shows a woman raising her voice and being very rude while shouting racist words at an employee while a young boy was there.
“If you want to talk to me, you bring your manager here, you idiot, or go speak Chinese with your other staff and s***- talk me somewhere else,” she says. “Speak English in Canada.”.
This form of discrimination and disgusting behaviour happens all over Canada. Thunder Bay is often labelled as a “racist city”. A member of city council in Thunder Bay has said that Thunder Bay’s racial issues are not swept under the rug, but rather are being addressed publicly which has given the city a bad reputation. These issues happen everywhere.
Thunder Bay has taken steps to help fight back against racism such as the “report a racist encounter” hotline that is setup via 211.
“Saw this happen today at the Shoppers Drug Mart on Kingsway/McMurray. I just want to put this lady on blast for being extremely rude and racist. And hopefully show her there’s consequences to this type of behaviour. It’s sad to see this sort of racism still in 2019 and in Greater Vancouver, BC, and Canada” Allen said on Facebook.
