VIDEO: Knife vs. shovel fight recorded in Mission on New Year’s Day

YouTube video caption reads: ‘Don’t bring a knife to a shovel fight’

[WARNING: Video below contains violence and swearing]

“Don’t bring a knife to a shovel fight” reads the caption of a YouTube video posted online on New Year’s Day.

The footage, posted by the account Destin Nation Media, records a fight between two men on a public street, which apparently occurred on Jan. 1 in Mission, B.C.

After an initial fight, one man appears to pull out a knife and walk towards the other man, who backs off and yells “Knife!” several times while circling away.

The two separate for a short time while continuing to exchange words from a distance until the previously unarmed man returns, wielding a shovel from a grey Ford F-150 truck on the opposite side of the road.

The two square off again and the knife-bearing man takes several dings before walking off with an associate who did not engage in the fight. They get in a cab, which was present for the length of the video but had backed off during the fighting.

The shoveler retrieves a jacket the other man was carrying, celebrates and drives away in the truck.

The Record has reached out to the Mission RCMP for more information.
