Woman in anti-immigrant rant sent to CAMH

A woman arrested after a racist rant that ended with her allegedly assaulting several police officers and a man taking video of her has been sent to the Centre for Addiction and Mental Health for assessment.

Justice Cathy Mocha ordered that Talya Davidson, 28, be assessed and appear in court again on September 12.

Davidson made headlines when a video of her holding a sign reading, “Vote Andrew Scheer” was posted to the website Reddit. In the video Davidson is seen spitting on the person recording the incident and making racist statements.

WARNING: VIDEO CONTAINS GRAPHIC LANGUAGE

“This is a place of men,” Davidson is heard saying in the video several times.

“This is a beautiful country and you can’t f– it up, you savages,” she said, before spitting on the man recording her. “You don’t belong here.”

Davidson was immediately denounced by Scheer and several top Conservatives as not speaking for their party. Her Facebook profile, started just days before this incident, stated that she supported Scheer to support the patriarchy, something the Conservative leader has not campaigned on.

Her online footprint, as well as the video itself, had many believing that she was part of a hoax to make Scheer look bad. Photos of Davidson appearing at events hosted by far-left publication Now Magazine in Toronto were readily available online.

Her former boyfriend, a Venezualan immigrant to Canada, said via direct message that he did not agree with her statements.

“Her actions don’t represent me or my values and we haven’t had any contact for over a year,” said Luis Vega.

Vega did not respond to further questions regarding Davidson’s motivations for her video rant or whether he knew her to hold anti-immigrant views.

Global News spoke to a man who identified himself as Davidson’s father and said that she had mental health issues. He did not go into detail.

This story comes just a week after Scheer had to deal with a claim, driven in part by Liberal partisans, that he had hired an actress to say she was supporting him after her bout with cancer. That woman, Adina Katz, has told various media outlets that she had faced online bullying and cruelty.
