Dumpster full of old TDSB textbooks ignites book-lover’s complaint | Toronto Star

Books about Malcolm X, Martin Luther King and INTERNATIONAL IMMIGRATION, natch.

Just watch--five, six years from now, they'll probably be tossing all the "diversity" textbooks, too.

I never knew Malcolm X and MLK jr were Canadians.

Nobody once complained about when they threw away those Anne of Green Gables last year.

I assume books do wear out. It is good that they are actually looked at to get to a point they do wear out. Only question I have is why in the dumpster and not the recycling bin?

ETA: saw the picture it was a recycling dumpster. Question withdrawn.

They are library books. From the SCHOOL Libraries . ( I know you hate the concept, but heck, Mr L, bear with us)
That is why they have the scanning bar code
