Man appears to call young Burlington girl n-word


A young Facebook user posted a video on June 8, appearing to show a man walk from a home and yell the n-word at a black girl who was rollerblading with friends in the Walkers Line and New St area in Burlington.

The video has since been made private.

My cousin and sister were rollerblading on the street and this guy has the nerve to call my cousin the N word cause they were in the middle of the street,” said to the poster.

The man appears to yell the slur twice before being confronted by the girls and retreating back to a home.

In an email to InHalton, Halton Regional Police said “it is truly disturbing that anyone would use that type of language towards another person”.

On Thursday (June 11), Police Chief Stephen Tanner posted a video to Twitter, saying the police service supports the upcoming rallies in support of the black community.
