I just read an article stating that inappropriate books are being burned en masse in Canada. Is it true?

Much Ado About Nothing.

This is what's important.
In addition to the controversy surrounding the program's destruction of books, CSC Providence told CTV News Toronto that one leader involved, Suzy Kies — the co-chair of the Indigenous peoples' commission of the Liberal Party of Canada — does not in fact have status with Indigenous Services Canada.


“CSC Providence has learned of the shocking revelations … about Suzy Kies. We are deeply troubled and concerned,” Lynn Cosette, a communications agent for the school board, told CTV News Toronto.

I don't know about that but a similar thing is trying to be brought into American schools, CRT. No longer will any thing be talked about concerning slavery, jim crow, moving the Native Americans from their home lands and etc. Because to a certain political party it makes white people look bad. Ignorance is rampant or maybe it's the new pandemic.

There is an old saying (that I can't remember well enough to quote), something about:
Pretending unpleasant events or atrocities never happened, just means they are more likely to be repeated.

History is history, it's not there to edit for someone or others convenience.

^ ^ ^ ^ Liked because I agree with comment. Not because I agree with revisionist history.
I don't agree with it either. History is history and it's up to those living now to admit to it and change how things are done to make life better. Better for every one not just some.

I am not sure I agree with the re-writing of history by renaming schools, streets and replacing statues.
Just like renaming something that to some, appears gender-specific, a recent one here was the removal of 'Man' in 'Museum of Man and nature'.
I remember a while back in the US, someone wanted to ban Huckleberry Finn as racist.

The "Museum of Us" sounds so much better.
