There is an incidence where one school board decided this would be a great idea and proceeded to see this done within its jurisdiction in Ontario, Canada.
Canadian news outlets reporting on the 2019 book burning and its recent aftermath:
A major literary purge has taken place in the libraries of the Conseil scolaire catholique, Providence, which includes 30 French-language schools across southwestern Ontario. Nearly 5,000 children's books about Aboriginal people were destroyed in an effort to reconcile with the First Nations, Radio-Canada has learned.
A ceremony of purification by flame was held in 2019 to burn about thirty banned books, for educational purposes. The ashes were used as fertilizer to plant a tree and thus turn the negative into positive.
[Lyne Cossette, spokesperson for the Conseil], added that the works withdrawn from the libraries had "out-dated and inappropriate content."
[Suzy Kies, leader of the initiative] denounced the indigenous characters presented in the childrens' books as "untrustworthy, lazy, drunk, stupid... When we perpetuate this sort of image in the minds of youths, it's hard for them to get rid of it."
