A woman has been arrested after allegedly yelling racial slurs and spitting on a bystander at Nathan Phillips Square on Monday afternoon.
In a video shared online by Farhan Rana, a woman is seen standing near the Toronto sign outside of City Hall while holding a sign that says “Vote Andre Scheer” and uttering a racial rant at the man recording.

“This is the place of men. This is the place of men. This is a beautiful country and you can’t f*** it up you savages,” she can be heard saying in the brief video.
“I can’t believe you’re real,” Rana can be heard saying.
“You want to f****** fight me?” she asks while walking toward the camera and spitting on Rana.
“Get the f*** home. Go home!” she yelled, before saying, “This is a place of men, not for f****** n******. You don’t belong here, get the f*** home.”
Following the incident, conservative leader Andrew Scheer responded to the video on Twitter saying “I don’t know who this woman is, but there is no place in our party or our country for her hateful language. I condemn her behaviour and racist comments.”
