Library Staff: Richview Library and Barbara Kulaszka

library staff: While some people ventured inside to monitor what the group was saying, there were no protests outside and the meeting was held without incident, according to CTV. Some groups had called for the booking to be cancelled, however city officials said they were not able to reject the request. A handful of people attended the gathering at the Richview Library to pay tribute to the recently deceased lawyer, Barbara Kulaszka, who defended a number of people associated with far-right causes, including Holocaust-denier Ernst Z ndel. In a statement, Mayor John Tory said he was deeply concerned about the meeting and said he has expressed those concerns to library staff. I have asked the library to ensure this event is closely monitored. Following a request I made to consider the cancellation of this event, I was informed that the library has received legal advice that it cannot reject this room booking request, Tory said in the statement.
