A Jewish advocacy group is demanding an apology from the Ontario government after it issued a grade 6 social studies textbook, falsely accusing Israel of using child soldiers. About 800 of the textbooks were issued before the publisher apologized, and recalled the books. Currently, however, each individual school has to request the correct version of the textbook and the Ministry has been quiet on the issue. Daniel Koren, media co-ordinator at B’Nai Brith, joins us to talk about it.
