It’s stuff like this that makes me sad for the world today. It also makes me cringe at the what the rest of the world must think about all of Canada-after seeing a video like this.
A viral video of a woman demanding to see a “white doctor” at a walk-in clinic west of Toronto who “doesn’t have brown teeth and speaks English” has sparked outrage across the country.
The incident, which took place on June 18 around 12:30 p.m. at the Rapid Access to Medical Specialists clinic in Mississauga, Ont., appears to show a mother seeking assistance for her child.
“You’re saying the whole entire building there isn’t one white doctor?” the woman tells an employee at the start of the video, which runs just over four minutes in length.
“What you’re telling me that my kid has chest pains, he’s going to have to sit here until 4 p.m. Can I see a doctor please that is white? That doesn’t have brown teeth and speaks English.”
The woman then proceeds to walk into the registration office where she repeats her demand for a “white doctor.”
“There was a doctor that was not white, that did not help my kid. I would like to see a white doctor. You’re telling me there’s not one white doctor in this whole entire building?,” she said.
“Oh my God. What type of horrible country do I live in?” the woman continues. “There’s nobody that’s Canadian? Nobody that was born here?”
Shocked patients sitting in the waiting room also chimed in on the woman’s remarks.
“This is racism,” one person said.
“Your child clearly has more issues with you being his mother than him needing to see a doctor. You are extremely rude and racist,” she said.
“Want to talk about ‘Paki’ people being at a hospital. Maybe you should check yourself in.”
The clinic declined to comment on the incident when contacted by Global News.
See for yourself. Here is the video.
