Three months after instituting a policy barring its chapters from affiliating with groups known to promote hate, the Royal Canadian Legion says it is investigating why one of its Toronto chapters hosted a Rebel News book event, saying "it never should have happened."

On Wednesday evening, the legion's North York chapter, Branch 66, hosted a signing for a book authored by Rebel News head, and self-styled "Rebel Commander," Ezra Levant.

Ahead of the event, the legion's national headquarters responded to tweets voicing concern over the planned event. "This goes against our anti-hate policy and the Provincial Commands have been notified," the legion tweeted.
