A Short One out of Canada quotes a 16-year-old student, who first noticed the books when he saw cart loads of them being trundled through the halls of the schoo, as saying:
"The cranky librarian ... said the only way to get new books is to show that they have a crappy library, and to do that they have to get rid of books,"
Principal Don Blackwell said only redundant and politically incorrect books were supposed to have been pitched. "Clearly, we made a mistake ...," he said.
