Indigenous shoppers say they were racially profiled at Superstores by Winnipeg police

A Winnipeg woman says she was left feeling humiliated last week after a police officer grabbed and held her by the shoulder until she produced her receipt inside of a Real Canadian Superstore.

On Dec. 2, Jenna Comegan and her sister went to purchase a few items from the Superstore on St. Anne's Road. She alleges that she and her sister were racially profiled by two Winnipeg police officers working inside of the grocery retailer.

The incident took place at a time when thefts and violent robberies at Manitoba Liquor and Lotteries Corporation stores are making local headlines. The corporation has said there are hundreds of thefts that take place inside of their Liquor Marts on a weekly basis.
