I'm not up to date on exactly what "critical race theory" entails, but I believe it is goes beyond saying "racism is real".  It's nothing terribly new in the US... I recall Texas (one of the largest buyers of textbooks) leaning on publishers to do whitewashing on the history of slavery and the Civil War.

Don't Canadian provinces weigh in on curriculum in the same sort of way?  There was debate in BC over whether SOGI curriculum should be in schools. If I recall Ontario had the same sort of political fighting over SOGI curriculum. Didn't the Wynne government mandate SOGI to be in classrooms, and didn't the DOFO government mandate it back out?
