Duelling demonstrations by a small group of secular charter supporters and a group of anti-racism protesters turned violent after a man was attacked with picket-sign sticks.

Two men from opposing sides got into an altercation that led to the anti-racism protester getting attacked with wooden sticks.

The site of the protest, Collège de Maisonneuve, made headlines last month when it was reported that five of its students had left the country to join jihadists in Syria.
