Is canada's censorship going too far by banishing the novel "the golden mean" from store bookshelves?

The novel, written by Annabel Lyon, outlining the childhood of Alexander the Great, depicts a photo on the front cover of a naked man lying on a horse. In my opinion, the photo was tastefully done and artistic. What do you think?

I dont think it should be banned simply because an artistic photo of a naked man was on the cover of a book. Censoring art to me is wrong, whats next taking pictures out of sexual education books, banning them all together? Seems like a silly reason to ban a book.

ANSWER #8 of 10

Really? Canada? I always thought of Canada as being less provincial than the lower 48.

Growing up on the Canadian boarder I remember building TV antennas as a lad to pull in Canadian stations to watch soft-core and uncensored Bennie Hill with nudity (albeit brief).

I remember Bush and Ashcroft ordering drapes to cover a partially nude statue at the Department of Justice because the sight of an exposed breast was too racy for them even on a statue. I really thought Canada was better than this.
