A white man is under investigation by police after a video of him screaming at a Muslim family and berating them for being in his region went viral.
The Toronto Star on Thursday reported that a spokesperson for the city said the incident, which took place at the Jack Layton Ferry Terminal with security provided by the city of Toronto, is under review.
Spokesperson Jane Arbour told the Star that the city is “reviewing the incident and the staff response to ensure we are doing everything possible to provide safe, welcoming spaces for residents and visitors,” and that “racism, harassment and assault are not acceptable in our parks and public spaces.”
The video, which appeared to have been recorded Monday, went viral earlier this week and shows an older white man being aggressive towards a Muslim family. At one point, he told them “you don’t ask me a question in my f*cking province,” and later when they’re speaking to a security guard, yells that he will “f*cking kill” them. He also appears to shove one of the men in the family, who responds by pushing him away.
The incident was recorded from two vantage points — one by someone who appears to be a member of the involved family, and another from behind the older white man.

Puerto Ricans launch biggest protest yet against governor
Angry protesters blocked the main road in Puerto Rico's capital on Monday as they launched what was expected to be the largest yet of a wave of demonstrations seeking the resignation of the US territory's embattled governor.
Marching under sunny skies in San Juan, the demonstrators sang, chanted, danced and carried the territory's red, white and blue flag with a lone star.
Altogether, hundreds of thousands were expected to turn out.
Puerto Ricans are up in arms over alleged corruption involving money meant to be for victims of Hurricane Maria in 2017, which left nearly 3,000 dead.
Here are 5 of the wildest and most outrageous comments Trump just made to the press
During an Oval Office meeting with Pakistani Prime Minister Imran Khan on Monday, President Donald Trump gave rambling and outrageous comments to the press about a wide range of subjects.
Here are just five of the wildest things he said in the meeting:
1. “Afghanistan would be wiped off the face of the earth.”
Trump said he could “win” the war in Afghanistan by simply committing genocide against the entire population.
“If we wanted to fight a war in Afghanistan and win it, I could win that war in a week,” he said. “I just don’t want to kill 10 million people.”
Trump blasts Iran, says hard to deal with top ‘terror’ state
US President Donald Trump said Monday that chances of negotiating with Iran were dwindling, as he cited increasing tensions in the Gulf and blasted the Islamic republic as the world's top "state of terror."
The president cited a series of recent conflicts involving Tehran, including the downing of US and Iranian drones and, most recently, Tehran's announcement that it arrested 17 people in connection to a CIA spy ring, a claim Trump rejected as "lies."
"Frankly it's getting harder for me to want to make a deal with Iran, because they behave very badly," Trump told reporters in the Oval Office, as visiting Pakistani Prime Minister Imran Khan sat at his side.
