Woman receives suspended sentence after racial slurs hurled at man in Edmonton parking lot

Angelique Denise Barfield, 45, also provided a handwritten letter of apology for Rahul Kumar, who captured the August 2018 tirade on video."I'd like to apologize to you and your family for my disrespectful behaviour," Barfield wrote."My words were hurtful and you were undeserving.

Theis looking into two controversial political signs posted on a lawn in southeast Edmonton.
One of the election signs, spotted on a lawn in the Meyonohk neighbourhood, shows a crosshair target on the foreheads of Liberal leader Justin Trudeau and Edmonton Mill Woods candidate Amarjeet Sohi.
The sign's caption read: "Save our Country. Vote out these A$$wipes."
A second sign on the lawn showed Trudeau walking across Parliament Hill in Ottawa with his pants edited to appear to be on fire, with a caption below reading, "What's that Nursery Rhyme? Liar Liar...?"
Both signs appear to be homemade.

On Wednesday night, the lawn also contained an official sign from Conservative candidate Tim Uppal, who responded Thursday morning.
"Threats of political violence have no place in our democracy," he tweeted. "I've instructed my campaign to remove our sign from this property."

The Uppal sign was gone from the lawn by noon, although it isn't clear if the homeowner or campaign staff removed it.
Edmonton police said as of Thursday morning they had not received a formal complaint about the sign.
However, spokesperson Scott Pattison added the EPS Hate Crime and Violent Extremism Unit and INSET have been informed and are looking into it.
