August 19, 2020 - at Walmart Guildford Mall, Surrey, BC


Prior to arrest - on August 11, 2020 - I went to another Walmart at Surrey Central Mall. On their loud speaker it said "as of August 12th it will be mandatory to wear a mask to shop at Walmart." I went to Customer Service to get clarification about this. I told them I have a letter from my doctor excusing me from wearing a mask - and the clerk went to speak to her supervisor. The clerk came back and told me "it is NOT mandatory to wear a mask if you do not want to."  I told her: "Why don't you explain to people on your loudspeaker that it is not mandatory - otherwise some irate customer could get angry with me because I am not wearing a mask?"  Well, this is exactly what happened to me one week later: An irate male employee/customer? -called me a whoring slut because I was not wearing a mask at the Walmart Guildford entranceway. 


Arrested at Walmart on August 19, 2020 at approx. 4:30pm. I went to Walmart Guildford. Upon entering the store, -I was told by Sandy (Walmart door checker) that I must wear a mask to enter. I explained that Walmart Customer Service told me that it is not mandatory to wear a mask - and I told Sandy I have a doctor's letter excluding me from a mask. Sandy told me I have to leave without a mask. I asked to speak to Customer Service - and she said I could not come inside. I asked to speak to the Store Manager and Sandy said, "there she is" (she was just walking through the door behind me.) This woman Manager was 35 - 40's in age. She had straight blonde hair past her shoulders and medium build. She was medium build. When I asked for her name - she refused to give it to me. (I have never encountered a Manager refusing to give their name before.) I asked to speak to her - so I could tell her about my doctor's letter and explain how Walmart Surrey Place told me mask wearing was not mandated. She told me to leave their store. I told her I plan on leaving - once I get her name. I told her I spend a lot of money in this store and I will never shop here again.  She said she does not have time to talk to me and she scurried off after refusing to release her name. 


Along with Sandy (Walmart door checker), and the Walmart Security doorman - another plain clothed Paladin Security Manager came up. He said he was the Paladin Manager - his first name Isaac. I kept telling everyone - I just want the Manager's name and I will leave. Various people were coming up to me - one older woman store clerk told me I am putting people in danger - she went on about how her relative died from Covid. I just wanted the Manager's name so I could leave and deal with this incident in writing when I got home. Sandy (door checker) - who happens to be an older friend of my daughter - had her back to me. I tapped on her shoulder to get her attention. I told her "do not ever talk to me again." (I only mention me tapping on Sandy's shoulder because when the Police arrived later they accused me of assaulting people and coughing on them). While every employee was refusing to give me their name - I made it clear- I will never shop here again.
