B'nai Brith Outraged by Antisemitic Taxi Assault in Montreal


While waiting for a cab operated by the Taxi Champlain company to stop blocking the underground garage, the victim heard the taxi driver shout, "I won't move for any f***ing Jews!" The driver then allegedly threatened to kill the victim, who is visibly identifiable as a Jew because he wears a kippah, or Jewish head covering. The victim then attempted to photograph the taxi number in order to file a complaint, at which point the driver exited his car and punched him repeatedly until a parking supervisor intervened. The victim's phone was also smashed.
