Police emphasized at the time it was not a protest but a violent clash between the two groups.

In a press conference days after the event, Calgary Police Service (CPS) chief Mark Neufeld said the incident was “bananas,” calling it “the largest violent event to happen in our city in recent memory.”

Police ask anyone who recognizes the individuals featured or has additional information to email and include the identification number associated with the photo.

Photos of all 50 people can be found on the City of Calgary website.
