Back to Burning Books Again
The Ontario Catholic School Board's decision to burn books deemed politically incorrect, a move prompted by Canada's activist answer to fauxboriginal Bruce Pascoe, became a hot issue in this month's Canadian election. Although the book burning began in 2019 and has just come to light it represents yet another powerful warning about the dangers of totalitarian cancel-culture and mind control. An open and free society where people's rights and liberties are guaranteed and protected is based of freedom of speech and freedom of the press. Central to this freedom is the ability to read a wide variety of stories and books - including those now judged politically incorrect.
