CLASH AT CITY HALL

The Hamilton Spectator - - LOCAL -

Protesters from a con­tro­ver­sial anti-Mus­lim group and counter anti-facism protesters squared off dur­ing com­pet­ing ral­lies out­side Hamil­ton City Hall on Sat­ur­day. The anti-im­mi­grant group, Cana­dian Com­bat Coali­tion, or­ga­nized the rally, with Hamil­ton Against Fas­cism show­ing up to counter them. Hamil­ton po­lice Staff Sgt. Frank Mis­cione said the protest got heated, with the two sides “get­ting in each other’s faces.” But ul­ti­mately, they dis­persed on their own and there were no ar­rests.
