WATCH: Looters smash Montreal storefronts including Steve's Music


Thousands of Montrealers gathered on Sunday to protest the death of George Floyd in Minneapolis, racial profiling and police brutality.

Although the protest, for the most part, was peaceful, some of those in attendance ended up looting local shops including a restaurant, a sex shop, and Steve's Music Store.

The latter news saddened members of Montreal's music community seeing as Steve's is an independent family-owned business which has been a longtime supporter of local musicians and local causes.
