UPDATE (AUGUST 27):
RICHMOND RCMP on Saturday announced that that they became aware on Friday, August 23 of a video posted on social media about an incident at a parking lot.
The video was reviewed and an investigation was initiated by Richmond RCMP. Both parties in this incident have been identified and investigators have been in contact with all involved.
According to a video posted on websites, it appears that a white woman passed some racist comments against another person at the Richlea Square Shopping Centre over a dispute about parking. “You don’t know a damn thing, go back to China where you belong,” the white woman yells when confronted about the way she had parked her vehicle.
When CBC News contacted the white woman who identified herself as Carla Waldman, the woman admitted that her car was touching the other driver’s licence plate. However, she added: “I do not regret anything I said to her because she was a very mean person … I don’t care what they’re calling me. I am not a racist person.”
“In order to ensure the integrity of the investigation and privacy of the individuals involved, we are asking the public to respect the investigative process and refrain from posting any comments on social media,” said Inspector Sunny Parmar, Operations Officer.
The investigation is continuing and police are asking the public to contact them at 604-207-1212 if they have any information about the incident.
