Halifax Public Library's decision to keep a controversial book on its shelves, containing what advocates call transphobic misinformation and hate speech, has led to local backlash and a break with Halifax Pride.

A community petition was launched last month to remove Irreversible Damage: The Transgender Craze Seducing Our Daughters by Abigail Shrier from library shelves. 

But on Thursday, Halifax Public Library released a statement saying it has decided to "not censor" the book and keep it in circulation.
