Worker gone af­ter phys­i­cally eject­ing man

The Hamilton Spectator - - CANADA & WORLD -

A spokesper­son for Cana­dian Tire says a staff mem­ber who phys­i­cally re­moved an Indige­nous man from a store in Regina is no longer with the com­pany.

Ka­mao Cappo of the Mus­cow­petung First Na­tion posted a video last week that ap­pears to show him be­ing pushed by an em­ployee who ac­cused him of shoplift­ing.

A spokesper­son for Cana­dian Tire says the em­ployee in the video “has not been work­ing in the store since the time of the in­ci­dent and he is no longer with (the com­pany).”

The in­ci­dent sparked on­line out­rage and a de­mon­stra­tion at the store.
