CBC Investigates published a report about the matter, explaining that all books published in 2008 or earlier are being "burned," so to speak, because they do not meet the Justin Trudeau regime's new "equity-based" process for public materials.
Everything from Harry Potter to The Hunger Games to Roll of Thunder, Hear My Cry is no longer allowed at Canadian public schools and libraries because they do not meet the anti-white standards being forced on Canada.
"This year, I came into my school library and there are rows and rows of empty shelves with absolutely no books," said Reina Takata, a 10th grade student who says her public high school library in Mississauga, Ont., which she visits during her lunch hour most days is devoid of most books.
While still in grade school at Erindale Secondary School, Takata also noticed that books were gradually disappearing. Now, as a high school student, she is noticing this phenomenon more and more, estimating that more than 50 percent of her school's library books are now gone.

Back in the spring, Takata says staff at her school informed all students that "if shelves look emptier right now, it's because we have to remove all books [published] prior to 2008."
In speaking to CBC Toronto, Takata and other students, parents, and community members at the Peel District School Board (PDSB) revealed that there is an inconsistent approach being taken as far as the new equity-based book weeding process taking place in their area.
Last spring, for those who missed it, a provincial directive from the Minister of Education started forcing public school systems and libraries to remove all books published in 2008 and prior because they do not qualify as "inclusive."
Before CBC went public with an exposé about all this, it reached out to Ontario Education Minister Stephen Lecce's office, only to receive no comment either from him or his department. Leece did, however, issue a general statement indicating that he has told the PDSB to stop burning all the books published prior to 2008.
"Ontario is committed to ensuring that the addition of new books better reflects the rich diversity of our communities," Leece said. "It is offensive, illogical and counterintuitive to remove books from years past that educate students on Canada's history, antisemitism or celebrated literary classics."
To be clear, this does not mean that the book burning will end. It just means that arbitrarily burning all books published prior to 2008 will no longer be the standard.
"I think that authors who wrote about Japanese internment camps are going to be erased and the entire events that went on historically for Japanese Canadians are going to be removed," Takata, who is Japanese, commented. "That worries me a lot."
Another major concern is how Canadian authorities are arbitrarily defining things like "inclusivity," seeing as how there is nothing inclusive from a white person's perspective to have all European and Caucasian reading material banned simply because it does not focus on non-white issues, cultures, or history.
"Who's the arbiter of what's the right material to go in the library, and who's the arbiter of what's wrong in our libraries? That's unclear," said Tom Ellard, a PSDB parents and the founder of a group called Libraries Not Landfills.
"It's not clear to the teachers who've provided us this material, and it's not clear to me as a parent or as a taxpayer."
