An intended march by a Christian group into the heart of Toronto's gay village Saturday stalled moments after it began when police peacefully separated it from a group of LGBTQ2S activists and supporters, in a showdown that closed major downtown intersections and lasted hours.

Following a rally led by organizer and evangelist preacher David Lynn on Church St, between Front St. and The Esplanade, the Christian group of several hundred people toting signs that read "Civil Rights are for Christians too" and "These are our streets too" started marching north, with a live, amplified band on a trailer pulled by a red pickup truck.

For a moment, the group's leading banner was of Maxime Bernier and the People's Party of Canada, until Lynn quickly switched it for one that read "We are Canadian Christians," and added a Canadian flag.
