BANFF, Alta. (NEWS 1130) — Video of a confrontation between a woman and a group of people is going viral, after she was apparently told to “go back to your own country”.
Victoria, who doesn’t want to give her last name because she is worried about potential repercussions, says she was in a line up at Banff National Park today when a man cut to the front.
She told the man what he did was rude because the line was long and families were waiting patiently.
Tnesions rose when she saw him on a trail shortly after this confrontation.
“That’s when he goes ‘Go back to your own country.’ As soon as he said that I took out my phone and was like ‘Did you just tell me to go back to my own country?’”
Video posted to Twitter shows a man try to grab her phone, and Victoria being told “you’re pushing limits you don’t want to push”.

The smoke from over 400 forest fires in Siberia reached Alaska and portions of the west coast of Canada by July 31, according to NASA.
The Russian regions of Irkutsk, Buryatia, Sakha and Krasnoyarsk have declared states of emergency as the smoke chokes cities downwind, according to the Associated Press. All smoke can be hazardous, especially for the young or elderly.
However, NASA scientists don’t believe the smoke will be traveling low enough in the U.S. to impact air quality.

It’s a pest problem that residents of one Scarborough street have been dealing with for months but now after one woman was bitten by a rat, they’re demanding the city take action.
“In the last two months we’ve seen nothing but rats” Susan Cook said.
“Morning, noon and night. Rats all the time.”
On Wednesday night, Cook was trying to pick some vegetable from her garden when she felt a sharp pain on the top of her hand.
When she looked down she saw she was bleeding and saw a rat staring back at her.
Cook was taken to hospital by ambulance and put on a high dose of antibiotics. She’s also going to begin a course of rabies shots on Thursday night.

Capital One said a hacker gained access to more than 100 million Capital One customer accounts and credit card applications earlier this year.
Among other information, the compromised data included some Social Security numbers.
The Department of Justice said Monday that Paige Thompson, 33, was arrested in connection with the breach. The department alleges that Thompson “posted on the information sharing site GitHub about her theft of information from the servers storing Capital One data.”
Thompson was able to gain access by exploiting a misconfigured web application firewall, the DOJ said.
