Hamilton police are investigating a physical confrontation between two opposing groups at the Hamilton Pride festival at Gage Park on Saturday.

Jackie Penman, a Hamilton police spokesperson, said she "can't say for sure" what sparked the altercation, but that a group of protesters clashed with a group attending the festival.

"I do believe there was a religious group there, and they were joined by some yellow vest protesters as well, and then some of the participants at the Hamilton Pride festival also got involved," she said.
