Despite pressure from Jewish and anti-racist groups, as well as local politicians, a memorial service for a controversial Canadian lawyer that was held at a Toronto Public Library and attended by a number of neo-Nazi figures, went ahead as planned.

Barbara Kulaszka, a far-right free speech lawyer who defended the likes of Holocaust denier Ernst Zundel, died last month at age 64.

Word began circulating via social media that a memorial service in her honour would be held on July 12 at the Richview public library in Etobicoke and would be attended by some of Canada's highest-profile neo-Nazis, including Marc Lemire, former president of the now-defunct white supremacist organization Heritage Front, and Paul Fromm, a white nationalist who is the founder of the Canadian Association for Free Expression, an organization that is "dedicated to free speech, immigration reform and restoring political sanity."
