Coun. Jyoti Gondek visited the store, in her Ward 3, on Saturday night after video of the rant began to circulate on social media.
In a video posted to her Twitter, Gondek said the store was run by “two wonderful sisters,” one of whom was by herself when the man came in and began making racist statements to the clerk after being told he could not shop without a mask.
“If you’re gonna go to a store that is run by people who live in your neighbourhood, you need to follow the rules, and the rules are that you need to wear a mask. And if you don’t feel like wearing a mask, I’ll tell you what: just stay home,” Gondek said.
“Do us all a favour and don’t spew your nonsense, racist garbage at people who are doing you a favour by keeping their doors open.
