Demonstrators Clash With Attendees At Maxime Bernier College Event - 2019-09-30
HAMILTON, Ont. — A protest outside an event by People's Party of Canada Leader Maxime Bernier took a violent turn Sunday evening as demonstrators clashed with supporters and those attending, with several people led away in handcuffs.
A fight broke out near the entrance of a hall at Hamilton's Mohawk College before the talk was set to begin, and police said four people were arrested for breach of the peace and later released. No injuries were reported.
Demonstrators, some of them covering part of their faces with bandannas or balaclavas, hoisted signs that read "White supremacy is terrorism" and "Refugees welcome here" as they yelled chants comparing those going inside to Nazis.
