Hamilton police say they have evidence to connect an anarchist book fair that happened over the weekend with a mob that vandalized businesses on Saturday night.
So far, however, police have declined to specify what that evidence is, saying the investigation is ongoing.

“We have now received evidence linking the Westdale book fair to the Locke Street incident,” Det.-Sgt. Michael Cunliffe said at a press conference on Tuesday. “So we are continuing to investigate this. It’s going to take a bit of time to come to a conclusion. We got lots of video to go through and we have lots of evidence to go through as well.”
About 30 people dressed in black with their faces covered were seen on Locke Street on Saturday night. The marchers held a banner that said, “We Are The Ungovernable.”
No one was injured, but police estimated the group caused up to $100,000 in damage to businesses and vehicles. Police have yet to make any arrests in the case.

The Hamilton Anarchist Book Fair took place from March 3 and 4 at Westdale Secondary School. The group behind the event declined a Global News request for comment on Sunday.
Police also said that they have been able to determine what route the group took, and are asking anyone who may have captured video within a three-block radius that evening to come forward.
Anyone with information is asked to contact Hamilton police.
