An anti-immigrant group barged into the Montreal offices of Vice Media unannounced on Wednesday to throw leaflets and insult reporters.

According to CTV news, the six men, most of them wearing masks, pretended to be delivering flowers in order to gain access to the office. They then threw leaflets and insulted reporters.

The members of the anti-immigrant group, called Atalante Quebec, denounced an article written published by VICE the previous week about anti-immigrant, far-right groups.

The group left before police arrived and did not physically harm anyone.

Vice reporter Simon Coutu, who was the target of the group, said the company would decide in the coming days whether or not to file a complaint with the police force.
