Indigenous elder Gary Moostoos was kicked out of an Edmonton mall and banned after he claims he was targeted by shopping mall security guards.
The trouble all started on October 26, 2014, when Indigenous elder and homeless outreach worker, Gary Moostoos, was sitting in the City Centre Mall's food court.
There he was approached by two security guards while eating and they demanded his name.
When Moostoos asked why they wanted his name, one security guard reportedly stated that they had been watching Moostoos' behaviour, saying that he looked, "suspicious."
The security guards for the mall also accused Moostoos of already being banned from the premises, something that the Indigenous outreach worker refuted.
