A Canadian woman caused a stir in a clinic in Mississauga, Ontario when she refused to get her sick son treated by "Paki doctors".

The woman was caught on video repeatedly asking staff for a white doctor to treat her son for chest pain. After a staff member told her that her son needed to see a pediatrician and that no one on their staff met her demands, things quickly escalated. Staff members told her to go to a hospital instead of the clinic, but the woman said she had already been there but they only had "Paki doctors" with "brown teeth".

"They only have brown doctors and they did not help my kid," she can be heard saying in the video recorded by Hitesh Bhardwaj, one of the people who confronted the lady for her racist tirade.


"It was quite shocking," Bhardwaj told Buzzfeed News following the incident, adding that the experience left him perturbed for the rest of the day.

As the woman grew more and more irate at the lack of white doctors, other people in the waiting room intervened. "Your child clearly has more issues with you being his mother than him needing to see a doctor," said one woman. "You are extremely rude and racist."

"You're brown, you're brown," the irate woman responded. "You're all attacking me because I'm white."

Police also reached the clinic when given a call and investigated the matter. "Police spoke to all involved parties," Constable Mark Fischer told Buzzfeed News. "A resolution was found that had the female’s son checked by a doctor at the clinic." Fischer said there were no charges laid. The clinic declined to comment.



The Mississauga area where the incident happened is considered the most diverse part of the country with around 54 per cent of the population containing visible minorities, including South Asian descent communities.

Sexton | 3 years ago | Reply | Recommend I am an elderly white person. I have a non-white doctor plus non-white dentist,and consider their professionalism to be of a very high standard. However, it did take a while becoming accustomed to a new racial mix, which is happening everywhere. Obviously, racial tension will be with us for quite some time, and certain people will always be rascist, but over time, and with patience, things will hopefully settle down for the majority.
