Verveille was shoved by the masked assailant, who seized the camera and smashed it on the ground, totalling it.
Reporter Mike Armstrong, who was shoved down some stairs in the incident, tweeted that the attackers belonged to a violent group of anti-fascist protesters.
Great shots in our story tonight by colleague JV. He took some great stuff until his cam was spiked like a football by masked protestors.
On the masked figures that assaulted us today... It was a violent faction of anti-racists.
La Meute hasn't even come out of the garage yet.
“We are disgusted and outraged by today’s unprovoked attack on a Global News crew covering demonstrations in Quebec City. While we are relieved that our journalists were not seriously hurt, Canadians should be concerned by this threat against the working of a free press. Our team was there to provide independent coverage and transparency as events unfolded – a goal clearly not shared by the thugs who shielded their identities in the commission of violence.”http://globalnews.ca/news/3683586/c...in-quebec-city/Side note: the anti immigration group La Meute had gathered to demonstrate their position and was not involved with the police or any violence. The police would not allow ANTIFA to attack La Meute so...they attacked others.
