Woman arrested following racist rant caught on video Police say a woman has been arrested and is being held in custody after a racist tirade was caught on video outside Toronto City Hall on Monday. The video, posted to Reddit on Monday, depicts a woman going on a racist rant while holding a “Vote Andrew Scheer” sign at Nathan Phillips Square. At one point, she can be seen spitting on the individual recording the video, yelling “this is a beautiful country and you can’t f--- it up, you savages,” and “you don’t belong here.” Police said they received calls from passersby around noon on Monday and arrested the woman shortly after.

Conservative Party of Canada Leader Andrew Scheer is condemning “racist” comments made by a woman that appear to have been captured on video in downtown Toronto and shared on social media.

“I don’t know who this woman is, but there is no place in our party or our country for her hateful language,” Scheer wrote in a tweet Monday evening.

“I condemn her behaviour and racist comments.”

The 24-second video was posted on Instagram and Reddit by Farhan Rana Monday afternoon. In it, a woman can be seen holding a white sign with the words “VOTE ANDREW SCHEER” painted in black.

Charges withdrawn against one accused in St. Michael's College School case

Charges withdrawn against one accused in St. Michael's College School case TORONTO — Sexual assault charges against a teen from a private school in Toronto have been withdrawn. The boy had faced two sex assault charges and one assault charge related to an alleged incident at St. Michael's College School last November. The Crown says after a comprehensive review of the case, there isn't a reasonable prospect for conviction and all three charges were withdrawn. Six other students at the all-boys Catholic school still face charges related to two alleged sexual assaults and one alleged assault related to one of the school's football teams. Police have said the alleged incidents all took place on school grounds last fall.

“You’re actually real,” he replied before saying again, “You’re real?”

“You want to f---ing fight me?” she asked before appearing to spit straight ahead and above the camera as it then pans down.

“Get the f--- home! Go home! This is the place of men, not for f---ing n----ers! You don’t belong here. Get the f--- home. You can’t spit on my country.”

The woman appears to continue right after, but the video cuts off. Rana provided Global News with an extended video (a minute and 19 seconds) of the incident. It appears to pick up where the 24-second video cut off.

Global News spoke with Rana Monday evening about the incident. He said he was out for a walk on his lunch break when she told him "out of nowhere" to "get out of my country."

“I haven't seen anything like this before. I haven't even heard of it. You see of it online here and there and it seems like random acts,” he said.

“But when it happens to you, you see it's so real. Even when it happened ... I was kind of amused by how ridiculous the whole thing was. But then when she came over and she assaulted me, I was like, 'Whoa, what's happening? Where am I?' I felt unsafe and all of a sudden it seemed kind of unsafe. There was so much anger, so much hostility. It was scary.”

He said he wanted to make a video to have evidence of the interaction. Rana said people reacted and offered assistance and sympathies after the incident.

"I've been working here for a few years. I've grown up here, like this is where home is for me. It was just so strange," he said.

"It was so ridiculous. When somebody is just talking to you, it's kind of easy to ignore -- you can walk away. But if somebody comes by and spits at you, that's when it kind of changed and it got really emotional. I wasn't laughing any more, it was serious, I was hurt and I was assaulted, and that's not OK.

"That doesn't belong here in Toronto. The people from Toronto are not like that. It's a multicultural, diverse society that we live in, and we're all here to support each other."

“Once there, it’s alleged she attacked a number of officers – three to be exact,” Hopkinson said.

The woman arrested, who was identified as Talya Davidson, was charged with assault and assaulting peace officers. She is scheduled to appear in a Toronto court Tuesday morning.

“Hate crime is very difficult offence to charge for. In order to be charged for a hate crime, you have to be saying racially-charged things as you’re committing another offence … she has not been charged with that as far as I’m aware,” Hopkinson said.

“She may have been saying racist slurs, she may have been saying slurs, that’s not arrestable for hate crime.”
