VANCOUVER — Transit police are looking into what’s been described as a racist rant onboard a Skytrain, against an elderly Filipino couple.
“I was born and raised right here. I know Canadians are good.”
The incident was captured by passengers and shared on social media.
Reports say the woman in the striped shirt who was shouting is a 75 year-old Westminster woman who began shouting at the elderly couple for speaking in their Filipino dialect.
A police news release says the Westminster woman is known to them for having anger issues, and that they launched an investigation into the incident after reviewing the video.
The couple reportedly told police they did not want officers to get involved.
