Security incident at Winnipeg clinic leaves woman injured
An indigenous woman says she was knocked to the ground by a security guard at a Winnipeg clinic after snapping a photo of him asking two people to leave. She believes the incident was racially motivated.
Vivian Ketchum went to the ACCESS Health Centre on Main Street around 9 a.m. Tuesday morning for an appointment.
"I went to the washroom and then when I came out, there was a black security guard there, and he was just checking to see — doing rounds — and he kind of made me nervous," said Ketchum. "I noticed two aboriginal people sitting in the waiting room, and they looked really cold. They weren't dressed really warm, and the black security guard went, and I could hear him asking them to leave, and that's when I stood up and figured, 'I'll take a picture of it.'"
