Portage Place apologizes to elder who was kicked out of mall


The manager of Portage Place is apologizing to Joe Meconse, a Dene elder and military veteran who was kicked out of the downtown Winnipeg shopping mall's food court for loitering.

Joseph Meconse, 74, said a security guard asked him to leave the food court on Friday, after he had just sat down with a plate of food.

The mall's policy is to ask patrons to move on if they've been sitting for longer than 30 minutes, he said.
