Police say a woman has been arrested and is being held in custody after a racist tirade was caught on video outside Toronto City Hall on Monday.
The video, posted to Reddit on Monday, depicts a woman going on a racist rant while holding a “Vote Andrew Scheer” sign at Nathan Phillips Square.
At one point, she can be seen spitting on the individual recording the video, yelling “this is a beautiful country and you can’t f— it up, you savages,” and “you don’t belong here.”
Police said they received calls from passersby around noon on Monday and arrested the woman shortly after.
Talya Davidson, 28, has been charged with one count of assault and three counts of assaulting police officers, police say.
She is expected to appear in court at 10 a.m. on Tuesday.
