"I just can't imagine a situation where a 12-year-old girl trying to open a bank account needs to be handcuffed and is escorted out of a building," Teillet said.

The bank and the police should be embarrassed and publicly apologize for their bizarre behavior.

This is the world we live in today I'm afraid... Though I'm sad to see it spread north of the border into Canada. But yes. I'd say the bank and police both were way, way, way out of line.

It's so obvious gramps and his 12 year old grand daughter were hardened criminals with a long rap sheet and that's why the cop had to 'cuff them while they checked their story.

Of course the article does not say what the bank told the police officers. I was sympathetic until this 'profiling' line and then grandpa saying he had to go to court for those others who might be wronged.
Of course they were wronged but I seriously doubt the officers just walked up and cuffed them both. Now he has anxiety and is afraid of the police? Will a big fat check make you feel better?

The Indian industry in Canada has created a group of prefered citizens that take offence to every thing. Just try and get a pipeline built and see how powerful the tribes have become. Even the supreme court will seldom rule against them.
