Stevens told CTV News that she came to know of the protest when she said she saw a "Canadian Patriots" event advertised online. 

She said that the "patriots" group denied that they were racist or that they were a hate group.

The news outlet also said that the group chanted things like "all lives matter" and called the counter-protestors "anti-fascists."

About 30 police officers responded to the scene, which reportedly took place in a strip mall parking lot at 118 Avenue and 82 Street. 

CTV News reported that there were approximately 50 people on either side of the fight.
