Video footage shows the preachers becoming agitated, with at least one pushing against the screen throwing punches.

Footage also shows a man wearing pseudo combat gear slugging two of the counter-protesters in the face with a helmet.

The preachers, Yellow Vests and men wearing garb of the Canadian Nationalist Party, a far-right group, were escorted out of the park by police.

The violence has renewed calls for police and the city to crack down on hate groups. Police have also come under fire for what has been seen by some as an inadequate response to the chaos.
