Police are investigating after attendees of a Hamilton Pride Parade were attacked by right-wing groups over the weekend.

Members of the Yellow Vest movement – who have recently been protesting at Hamilton's city hall – are suspected to have been involved in the clash at Gage Park, which resulted in minor injuries. Matthew Green, a former Hamilton city councillor and current federal NDP candidate, said he saw the altercation break out because of "far-right evangelicals" who were there "just there to sucker-punch people."

According to the site AntiHate.ca, "the Yellow Vests movement has been entirely co-opted by the far-right including most extreme anti-Muslim groups in Canada."
