A library permit granted to a controversial Canadian group has Mayor John Tory calling on the city's library board to review policies on which groups should be allowed to rent library spaces and for what purposes.

The Canadian Association for Free Expression (CAFE), referred to as a far right group, requested space at the Richview Public Library in Etobicoke for a memorial in honour of an equally controversial lawyer.

Lawyer Barbara Kulazska passed away last month. Kulazska had defended people facing hate crime charges and Holocaust deniers, including Ernst Zundel. Zundel, A German-Canadian writer and activist who has published books denying the Holocaust ever happened, was arrested, charged and served jail time for his denials in Canada.
