calgary bus racist rant

Calgary police asking people to come forward after racist bus rant goes viral

Calgary Police Service is asking witnesses of a racist rant that took place on public transportation to come forward with more information. 

On Wednesday, a Calgary bus rider took to Twitter to share a video of a woman shouting racist remarks at those around her. While it's unclear who exactly on the bus she was addressing, her comments were quite pointed. 

"Go back to Africa, go back to China," she can be heard yelling in the video.

"You guys are f**king idiots, go home. You're on my land."

"She's being racist. Enjoy it when you go viral on social media," the person filming the video can be heard saying. 

In their own tweet, Calgary police responded, saying that they are aware of the incident. 

The Calgary Police Service hasn't started a formal investigation but they are seeking more information, a police spokesperson told Freshdaily.

"We're aware of the video, but at this point, we still need someone to come forward and report," said Corwin Odland, adding that they are looking into it but can't do a formal investigation until someone comes forward to report it.

"So we're asking anyone who was there, who was one of the victims, to call so we can investigate it further."
