A statement from Giant Tiger says an employee of its Avonhurst Drive location has been suspended pending investigation after a filmed incident showing an Indigenous man being followed through the store.

The statement, issued by Alison Scarlett on behalf of the company, states Giant Tiger was made aware of the incident that occurred on Thursday evening at its Towers Mall location.

“Giant Tiger is a proud community retailer and we take matters of this nature very seriously,” the statement reads. “What occurred in the video in question is a direct contradiction of our brand values as well as our policies and should never have occurred. The employee in question has been suspended while we undergo an investigation. We have reached out to the gentleman in the video directly to apologize.”

The video, which was shared on social media Friday and has since been viewed more than 400,000 times, shows a man walking through the store while apparently shadowed by a staff member.

“Every time I come here,” the man says on the video he shot showing the staff member trailing behind him as he walks through the store looking for groceries.

“I’m going to go grab rice and butter,” he quips at one point. “Come on, man. Follow me.”

Attempts to contact the man on Sunday were unsuccessful.

In an email responding to a request for additional information, Scarlett confirmed the employee is a “loss prevention associate employed by this particular store.”

“I am not at liberty to discuss the specifics of the suspension at this time,” she added.

The incident appears to bear similarities to one that occurred at the east Regina Canadian Tire in July, which was live-streamed by an Indigenous man who was removed from the store where he had gone to buy a chainsaw. The employee involved in that instance reportedly accused the man of stealing. Shortly after, the store said the employee is no longer working there.
