Quebec City police declared a counter protest by anti-fascists illegal because of “violence and vandalism” on Sunday, August 20. The counter protest was in response to the right-wing group La Meute’s planned rally.

The anti-fascists set off fireworks and lit dumpers on fire, according to reports. La Meute’s members were cornered in a parking garage. Police said it arrested at least one person.
