Bicyclist Attacks Anti-Masker in Vancouver, Smashing Car Window

A bicyclist attacked a man expressing anti-mask, anti-lockdown views in Vancouver during a rally on March 27, smashing his car window as he spoke through a megaphone at people in the street.

Footage of the confrontation taken by Alexander Lasarev shows him using a megaphone as he sits in a car driving down Vancouver’s Main Street.

“Congratulations for following the narrative, and trusting the news, and not questioning anything,” Lasarev says. “You’re all doing a great job complying with the narrative. There’s definitely not a psychological operation happening when you’re convinced of a reality that’s based on fear that has nothing to do with what’s actually happening.”

A man then approaches Lasarev’s vehicle and hits his window repeatedly with a bicycle, ultimately shattering it as the two exchange expletives.

“Around 3:30 pm on March 27 a convoy of vehicles was taking part in an anti-mask rally on Main Street,” Vancouver Police Constable Tania Visintin wrote in an email, according to the Victoria News. “A passenger in one of the vehicles was talking into a bullhorn and pointing it out the window. Witnesses to the incident detained the cyclist until Vancouver police arrived and took custody of him.”

The Victoria News reported that the Vancouver Police had recommended charges of mischief and assault with a weapon against the cyclist. Credit: Alexander Lasarev via Storyful
