A peaceful protest outside an event for Maxime Bernier turned violent Sunday evening as supporters of his People's Party of Canada began to arrive and enter the venue.

A scuffle occurred in the crowd of around 100 about half an hour before the event at Hamilton's Mohawk College was scheduled to start. Two men from opposing sides of the protests were led away in handcuffs by police.

There were a total of four arrests for "breach of the peace," Hamilton police said, and all of those people were later released without conditions.
