Landry told the Winnipeg Sun that they were in the middle of the road in protest at around 7:30 PM and that the car, occupied by four people, was stopping.
“I decided to express my protest and my deep anger by lying down on the street,” he told Winnipeg Free Press. “At that point, the crowd of vehicles waiting for me to get out of the way was greatly aggravated by my peaceful protest.”
“(A woman) started screaming that our protest was pointless, that what we were doing was more of a negative aspect. In her view, it was seen as an aggression against society that we shouldn’t express ourselves, “said Landry.
“She spat out libel at my friend … and at one point started threatening us, saying that if we stayed on the street longer, we would be injured.”
The woman who shot the video said most of the drivers, who were described as “picky,” drove around the two protesters.
The suspects “initially got out of their vehicles and shouted at the protesters, but then it quickly escalated … These boys drove on and suddenly stopped.”
Landry claims that when they got up, the car backed up to them, prompting him to throw water on the vehicle.
“She spat out libel at my boyfriend … and at one point started threatening us, saying if we stayed on the street longer, we’d be injured,” said Landry

“She was very offended at the fact that I stopped her time,” Landry noted.
When the video starts, his friend rushes to stop the woman wearing a Nike shirt. who eventually got a cut in the head and bled according to Landry, who is a medical professional.
The woman who tweeted the viral video saying ‘isn’t complete so unfortunately you don’t see the part where the girl in pink throws a glass cup at Theo or where the white girl slaps Judah on the head trying to get the stick off her or where she hits Theo on the arm.
“Or the part where one of the girls steals Theo’s phone if it falls to the floor and they run and get in their car and drive away.”
A second video circulating online shows another woman sitting in the car using the stick as a weapon against the girlfriend.
Landry, who works at the local children’s hospital, took care of her after the attack, and she refused on-site medical treatment by the time an ambulance appeared at around 8.15 p.m.
Landry said he was beaten first, twice in the arm.
“I was very scared of my life,” said Landry. “I’m lucky it was a hockey stick, because I don’t know what they could have thought of.”
“The next day I was a little painful, but psychologically is where the biggest toll is taken,” Landry added. “To know that there are people who will resort to such anger at water is very disproportionate.
Police were called to the protest area organized by Jylah George-Marie Shallcross.
Someone who attended the protest shared the video on social media along with a post about what would have happened before the clip started
“From the perspective that this happened during a peaceful protest where people did nothing wrong, it is really heartbreaking,” said Shallcross, who is Afro-native. “It really shows that racism is happening here, racism is happening in our backyards. Things like this when they happen stay with us all our lives. It is not something we forget. ‘
“This is why we do these protests,” Shallcross said CTV.
“It was just a mix of anger, fear and heartbreak. I couldn’t believe anyone could do this so close to me. ‘
Landry said he has experienced racism multiple times since moving to Winnipeg in 2017.
“What happened on July 4, I was sad but not surprised,” said Landry, 29 Winnipeg Sun..
Winnipeg police are now investigating the incident. One of the suspects is working for SportChek in Canada and the company is aware of the incident.
“The violent behavior in this video is not tolerated and does not reflect SportChek’s brand or values,” SportChek tweeted. “We have taken steps to address this issue.”
