On Monday, the RCMP confirmed that a woman involved in a racist rant in Richmond will not be facing charges.

On Friday, August 23rd, a video made its way across social media that shows a disturbing racist incident in the parking lot outside the Richlea Square Shopping Centre.

As the video moves along, you’ll notice two cars parked facing each other have their front bumpers touching. One car had crossed over the white parking spot line, and the driver of the other car was angry to say the least.

“You don’t know a damn thing, go back to China where you belong,” says the driver, a Caucasian woman.

Police conducted an investigation and described the incident as “disturbing and troubling”, but wasn’t criminal in nature.

Under the Criminal Code of Canada, there is no specific section for what constitutes as a hate crime. However, the Code does offer sentencing options for other crimes, which might’ve been motivated by hatred.

Since the incident, the woman who identified herself as Carla Waldman, has been bombarded with nasty and vile comments online.
