A library patron asked the [Toronto] library’s materials review committee to pull “Hop on Pop,” a children’s classic written in 1963, because of the book’s violent themes.
The patron recommended the book be removed, and requested the Toronto Public Library not only apologize to Greater Toronto Area fathers but pay damages resulting from the book’s violent message.
The library committee was also asked to remove a book about the Kennedy assassination because of its controversial thesis that JFK was shot by Lee Harvey Oswald.
In my entire life, I have never been moved to complain about a library book. What’s wrong with people?
