The Edmonton Police Service informed Narcity that they are aware of this video but cannot provide any further details.
The video was originally shared on Facebook but has since been deleted, according to the Edmonton Journal. It has since been published on multiple social media platforms, including a post on Twitter by Lauren Boothby of the Journal.

According to the Journal, the incident occurred at Olympia Liquor on 137 Avenue in a northwest neighborhood.
Navdeep Singh, a supervisor, said the man began his outbreak as soon as it entered, according to the Edmonton Journal.
Apparently there is a sign outside alerting shoppers to wear masks as masks have been mandatory in the city interiors since August 1st.
Singh said he wanted to tell him to wear a mask, but he was just starting to walk on the people in the store.
The video shows a man in a red t-shirt pointing at a fellow buyer and yelling at him. “You respect Canada yourself.” Then he heard it say, “I never knew how good it was for a country until you moved here.”
It’s unclear what made the person approach the other buyers or what exactly was said prior to making that statement.

His identity is unknown at the time of publication.
At some point someone who is recording the video asks his name, but he doesn’t give it up.
He continues to yell profanity at people in the store as he leaves.
He says to a person wearing a mask, “You better respect the laws of our country” before offending the man’s beard.
According to the Journal, Singh said the man claimed he would not shop at the store if people were wearing masks.
Narcity has contacted Olympia Liquor for a comment and we will update this article when we have a response.
The Journal reported that because of this outbreak, staff decided not to call the police.
