Racal video of British Columbia woman goes Viral

British Columbia woman

A British Columbia woman who launched a disturbing racist tirade at an Asian motorist during a Friday parking lot dispute may soon face criminal charges.

Carla Waldman, of Richmond, British Columbia, admitted she is the white retiree who yelled racial and xenophobic slurs at Amy Xu on Friday afternoon, according to the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation.

Xu told the CBC she and her three-year-old daughter took Xu’s mother to a doctor’s appointment at an office at the mall before returning to find someone had parked their car over the designated space and was touching her vehicle’s bumper. 

Xu waited for the driver of the other vehicle, who turned out to be Waldman, to confront her about her poor parking.

She recorded the ensuing argument on cellphone video before it was uploaded on the mobile app WeChat where it went viral and ended up on YouTube, Facebook, Twitter and Instagram.

The video starts with Waldman insulting Xu while walking back to her car.

‘We don’t want you here because you can’t drive,’ Waldman paradoxically tells Xu before using her tongue and lips to blow a raspberry.

Xu pans the camera to Waldman’s front bumper, which is seen extended over her parking space’s marker and touching Xu’s vehicle.

‘You see? You crossed the line,’ Xu tells Waldman.

‘I crossed the line!’ Waldman replies in a mocking high-pitched voice.

‘You don’t know a damn thing. Go back to China where you belong, you f*cking a**hole,’ she continues.

Waldman also calls Xu a, ‘Chinky, chinky, China lady,’ during the video.

‘You know what? You give these people a bad name here. We hate you people. Go back where you belong. F*ck you, you f*cking c*nt!’ she adds before finally getting into her car and starting to drive away.

Xu declines to respond on camera to Waldman’s bigoted barrage, telling a reporter she instead opted to tend to her startled child.

‘My daughter was so frightened,’ she told CBC. ‘The first thing for me to do was calm down my daughter, not argue with her… I’m still mad about this. My kid was there and this is a really bad example for her. She was frightened and can’t sleep now.’

Xu’s husband, Fang Xu, said he filed a formal complaint with Richmond police Saturday morning.

The police said they are investigating the incident.

A woman who identified herself as Waldman confessed over the phone to CBC that she was the one in the video and admitted her car was touching Xu’s license plate.

But the retiree also denied being a racist and said she doesn’t regret the language she used.

‘I do not regret anything I said to her because she was a very mean person,’ Waldman said. ‘I don’t care what they’re calling me. I am not a racist person.

Mississauga mayor statement after shooting in the city

Published

By

The mayor of Mississauga, Ont., says she’s “shocked and saddened” after a teenage boy was killed and five other people were wounded when gunfire erupted in the city west of Toronto on Saturday evening.

Bonnie Crombie called the incident a “senseless act of gun violence” and says her thoughts and prayers are with the victims’ families.

Peel Regional Police Chief Chris McCord said at a news conference late Saturday night that according to witnesses, multiple suspects unleashed a barrage of gunfire from semi-automatic weapons near a parkette behind an apartment building at around 6:20 p.m.He said a 17-year-old old boy died at the scene and that five others – a 13-year-old, a 16-year-old, two 17-year-olds and a woman in her 50s – were injured.

McCord said one of the wounded was in serious condition and that the other four suffered non-life-threatening injuries.

No suspect information has been released as officers continued to canvass the area for surveillance footage and police are asking anyone with information on the shooting to come forward.

Crombie thanked first responders who rushed to the scene and she says she hopes to take action in response to the shooting.

“As a member of the police board, I am committed to ensuring Mississauga remains one of the safest cities by working to get illegal guns off our streets,” said Crombie in a statement.

McCord has said that “a lot” of shell casings were found scattered over a wide area and that several vehicles were hit by the gunfire.

He said it’s early in the investigation and that many questions about the incident remained unanswered, including the motive, whether the victims were targeted and whether the shooting was gang related.

A music video was being filmed near the scene of the shooting, but McCord said he didn’t know if it was in any way linked to the case.

Police seeking 7 suspects in shooting in Mississauga

Published

A 17-year-old boy who was killed in a shooting in Mississauga on Saturday night was an innocent victim, Peel Regional Police say.

Peel Police Chief Chris McCord told reporters on Sunday that investigators believe there were seven shooters involved in gunfire that injured four other teens and a woman in her 50s in a parkette behind an apartment complex.

The shooting occurred on Darcel Avenue near Dunrankin Drive, in the area of Morning Star and Goreway Drive. Police were called to the scene at 6:22 p.m.

Officers have recovered more than 100 shell casings at the crime scene.

McCord said police also believe the shooting was motivated by a rap music video that was filmed in the parkette and released last week.

The teen boy, whose name has not been released, was pronounced dead at the scene. The five injured people — a 13-year-old girl, a 16-year-old boy, and two 17-year-old boys — were taken to hospital with non-life-threatening injuries.

Police say one of the injured people has been released from hospital and the remaining four are in stable condition

McCord said some of the injured are also believed to be innocent victims.

He said the shooting occurred as people in the parkette were setting up to shoot a music video and an ice cream truck was nearby.

No one is in custody, no suspects have been identified and officers are reviewing security camera video.

Police believe the shooters used semi-automatic weapons, but none of those weapons have been recovered.

Mayor says she is ‘deeply shocked’ by shooting

On Sunday morning, police canvassed the neighbourhood, knocking on doors in the hopes of finding witnesses and security camera video.

Officers also sent out a drone to obtain an aerial view of the crime scene and brought in a metal detector to scan for stray bullets in the grass.

Mississauga Mayor Bonnie Crombie said in a statement Sunday that her thoughts and prayers are with the victims and their families.

“I am deeply shocked and saddened to hear of this senseless act of gun violence in our city, it’s simply unacceptable. I urge anyone with information to contact police immediately,” Crombie said.

“As a member of the police board, I am committed to ensuring Mississauga remains one of the safest cities by working to get illegal guns off our streets.”

Crombie also thanked Peel police and paramedics who “swiftly” went to the scene.
