A school history book mentioning the Alamo in Mexico is probably quite different that a school history book mentioning the Alamo in the USA.All about who writes the history books.
Not to pick nits but I'm pretty sure the Alamo was a mission founded by Roman Catholic missionaries from Spain to "further civilize" your brethren in the South-West.What's to argue about? The Alamo is where the heroic Texians crushed the Mexican army and brought peace and justice and Christianity to Texas.

Attorney General David Lametti’s legal bid to conceal files on the termination of Chinese scientists at a federal lab cost Canadians $122,600.

And according to Blacklock’s Reporter , payments to third-party lawyers were part of the expenses.
“In this case only solicitor-client privilege is waived and only to the extent of revealing the total legal costs,” cabinet wrote in an Inquiry Of Ministry tabled in the House of Commons.
Scientists and staff at the National Microbiology Laboratory in Winnipeg who were affiliated with the People’s Liberation Army were fired Jan. 20, 2021 following an RCMP raid.
According to internal emails, Chinese researchers were in communication with the Wuhan Institute of Virology prior to the COVID-19 outbreak in Wuhan.
Lametti subsequently sued to conceal the files — citing national security — under the Evidence Act.

“It is not going to be a decision that is partisan in any way,” Lametti told reporters at the time. “I will approach this as Attorney General in a non-partisan manner. I will never play politics with national security.”
This is the first time any government cabinet has sued Parliament to conceal records.
“Regardless of political stripe Parliament is supreme and we have a right to this information,” said Conservative MP Michelle Rempel Garner. “When the House or the committee orders this information, it is not up to the government to try and sue the Speaker of the House of Commons.”
Government business was halted and the lawsuit was dropped when the general election was called last September.
Since the election, with the Liberal’s returning another minority government, cabinet still has not permitted MPs to review the files.
