Video Shows White Man Berating Asian Family in Burger King Drive-Thru

An unidentified white man was captured on video allegedly berating a family with anti-Asian insults in a Burger King drive-thru on May 1. The alleged incident occurred in Richmond, a city in the eastern Canadian province of British Columbia. The Royal Canadian Mounted Police (RCMP) have begun circulating the man’s image as a suspect in the “hate incident.” Benjamin Wong, a Chinese Canadian bystander who recorded some of the man’s racist insults, said he was “quite upset” about the allegedly anti-Asian statements the man made to an Asian family waiting in their SUV, the Canadian news network CTV reported. “F*cking Chinese,” the man reportedly said. “I can f*cking kill you.” The Royal Canadian Mounted Police are seeking a white man

NYC mayor candidates debate future of policing amid spike in shootings and urgent calls for reform

New York City’s next mayor will inherit the nation’s most expensive police department, following a public health crisis, a rise in violence and international demands to reform – or transform completely – how police officers interact with the communities they serve. In their first debate appearance on Thursday, eight Democratic candidates for mayor – among 15 set to face off in a primary election on 22 June – clashed over their approaches to the future of the New York Police Department and how to spent its more than $5bn budget. The debate follows a Times Square shooting that injured three people, including a four-year-old girl. Shootings citywide within the first few months of 2021 have spiked by 40 per cent

Emotional testimony on Joyce Echaquan’s last days, as inquest into her death begins

People take part in a protest called ‘Justice for Joyce’ in Montreal, on Oct. 3, 2020. Graham Hughes/The Canadian Press Joyce Echaquan had long feared going to the hospital in Joliette, Que., where she died last year after being subjected to racist insults from medical workers, according to emotional testimony from her husband at a coroner’s inquest Thursday.

Two deputies fired for inaction over Florida school shooting must be reinstated, judge rules

Two deputies fired for their inaction in a Florida school shooting that left 17 people dead must be reinstated with back pay, a judge has ruled. Broward County deputies Brian Miller and Joshua Stambaugh were fired in the wake of the 2018 massacre at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Florida. Now Broward Circuit Judge Keathan Frink has decided that arbitrators last year were correct in ruling that the fired deputies should get their jobs back. Both deputies should also be paid for sick and vacation time, overtime and off-duty detail pay, among other benefits that they would have received if still on the job, the judge confirmed. Under Florida state law any discipline against law enforcement officers must

Kansas City Southern endorses CN’s takeover bid

A freight train of the Kansas City Southern Railway Company is pictured in Toluca, Mexico, on Oct. 1, 2018. Edgard Garrido/Reuters Kansas City Southern switched suitors late Thursday, endorsing a US$30-billion offer from Canadian National Railway Co. and spurning a US$25.2-billion bid from rival Canadian Pacific Railway Ltd. KCS, which operates a network that links the U.S. Southwest to Mexico, said its board and advisers found Montreal-based CN Rail’s offer of US$200 a share in cash and 1.129 common shares to be a “superior proposal” to the friendly bid of US$90 in cash and 0.489 of a share that CP Rail announced in March. “We are delighted that KCS has deemed CN’s binding proposal superior,” Jean-Jacques Ruest, president and chief

Patients, health care workers need to be on alert for AstraZeneca-related COVID-19 vaccine illness: experts

Alberta was the first of several provinces to stop using the AstraZeneca vaccine for first doses. LEONHARD FOEGER/Reuters Lisa Stonehouse had aches and pains after she received her first dose of the Oxford-AstraZeneca vaccine[1], but after about a week, things took a turn. She developed a headache that quickly got worse – so bad that her 19-year-old daughter insisted they head to the emergency department to get it checked out. Ms. Stonehouse’s daughter, Jordan, waited in the car outside Grey Nuns Community Hospital in Edmonton for what she thought would be an hours-long visit. Ms. Stonehouse returned less than 10 minutes later, said long-time family friend Wilf Lowenberg. “She said, ‘Well, they sent me away. They said there’s nothing they
