"I know up on top you are seeing great sights, but down here on the bottom, we too should have rights"
- Dr. Seuss, Yertle the Turtle
The story of a Dr. Seuss quote that was apparently banned in a Prince Rupert classroom has gone viral, making headlines in the Globe and Mail, the Gawker blog network, and even the Atlantic.
It's an easy headline to say Dr. Seuss has been banned, but in the context of the battle over Bill-22, the school district maintains it's not banning Yertle the Turtle, but political action in the classroom. This morning, we spoke to the school board, the teacher's union, the education minister, and a parent for their thoughts.

Families of both the workers have been notified. Other families, too, are dealing with the aftermath of the explosion and fire. Over two dozen Lakeland Mills employees were rushed to hospital on Monday. Even those who escaped without physical harm are dealing with the trauma. Cindy Coté is friends with the family of one of those workers. She told Daybreak North what's she's heard it was like inside Monday night's disaster.
First responders are also grappling with the aftermath of the explosion and fire. John Lane is the fire chief in Prince George. He joined Daybreak for an emotional interview this morning.
This is, of course, the second such mill explosion to take place in northern B.C. this year. In January, Burns Lake was rocked by the destruction of that community's main employer. Now, the union responsible for mill employees in Prince George and Burns Lake is looking at how to prevent more of these incidents. Bob Matters is chair of the Wood Council of the United Steelworker's Union.
The union is not alone in asking questions about mill safety.Yesterday, the B.C. government announced that ALL mills in the province will be inspected for safety, particularly when it comes to sawdust levels. Mary MacDiarmid is the province's Labour Minister.
Senior Vice-President of Human Resources and Corporate Services Roberta Ellis announced the decision to inspect safety conditions during a press conference yesterday. But reporters asked Ellis why WorkSafe B.C. didn't order the inspections after the Burns Lake sawmill disaster in January. Here's her response.
For now, the link between pine beetle wood and the mill explosions in Burns Lake and Prince George is nothing more than speculation. But Neil McManus believes it's a link worth inspecting, and inspecting fast. He's an industrial hygienist, and owner of NorthWest Occupational Health and Safety. He was on our afternoon show Radio West yesterday.
Also following this story is Roger Harris. He's the B.C. Forest Safety Council ombudsman. He spoke with Carolina De Ryk this morning.
Coverage of this story continues throughout the day on CBC Radio, TV and at CBC.ca/bc. Tomorrow on Daybreak we will continue to bring you all the developments and the stories in the wake of this disaster.

The interview is below:
Tuesday April 24, 2012
Late last night, residents as far as twenty-five blocks away felt an explosion rip through the Lakeland Mills sawmill in Prince George, on River Road.
Daybreak reporter Wil Fundal spoke with Carolina De Ryk this morning to explain what happened.
Emergency crews rushed to the scene after the explosion engulfed the mill at about 9:45 p.m. PT, shaking nearby homes and businesses. Flames at the sawmill, located about one kilometre outside the city, were reported to have shot more than 60 metres in the air at one point, according to witnesses.
Daybreak's Robert Doane and Wil Fundal were on the scene shortly after the fire happened. They spoke to eyewitnesses last night.
Brian Croy is the vice-president of the United Steelworker's Union. He was sitting in the lunchroom when the explosion happened. Here's what he saw.
Roberto Sciera's father was in the mill when the explosion hit. He found out via Facebook.
The fire that followed has now been controlled but there are still hotspots and the fire isn't expected to be fully extinguished for another 24 to 48 hours, officials said Tuesday.
"There's nothing left standing as far as a recognizable physical structure. It was literally just a ball of flame," said Cameron Stolz, a Prince George city councillor.
All 50 workers who were on the job Monday night have been accounted for, officials said.
Twenty-five people with varying injuries were treated at University Hospital of Northern British Columbia in Prince George, a Northern Health representative said.
A Code Orange was called for the hospital. Daybreak's Robert Doane spoke to Northern Health's Steve Raper.
Northern Health and the RCMP have confirmed that one person has died as a result of injuries in hospital.
A total of 17 others remained in hospital on Tuesday morning, including four who had been transferred by air ambulance to other facilities -- three to Vancouver and one to Edmonton.
"There were certainly some patients with some very severe burns, and we had to evacuate those to the waiting ambulances some distance away," fire Chief John Lane told CBC's Nancy Wilson.
The fire chief said the sawmill, the log processing facility and the sorting facility were all destroyed, but the planer facility and an energy plant were intact.The cause of the explosion and fire was not yet known.
Fire continues to burn, crews have it contained
Flames continued to burn at the Lakeland Mils sawmill this morning, but crews say they had it contained. CBC's Andrew Glass visited the site.
John Lane is fire chief for Prince George. He explains how crews are dealing with the fire.
Flames 'lit up the entire downtown'
Stolz told CBC News that he rushed to the scene after the explosion shook the house he was in.
"The flames literally lit up the entire downtown; they must have been visible for kilometres," he said.
The "cataclysmic" fire had many local families in shock, Stolz said.
"Families are there, and they're just thankful and giving up their prayers that no one was killed in the fire," he said.
Stolz said emergency services called in all the fire halls and extra staff, and extra workers rushed in to help at the local hospital.
Economic hit unknown
Prince George Mayor Shari Green was in Victoria when the explosion hit. She says it is too early to even think about the economic hit the city will take as a result of this disaster.
Severe burns 'quite gruesome'
Colleagues at the Lakeland Sawmill scrambled to help each other immediately after the blast, with one saying he used scissors to cut charred clothing off those with severely burned skin.
"It was quite gruesome," said Brian Croy, first vice-president of the United Steelworkers Local 1-424, in an interview with the The Canadian Press from his home.
"When you walk out, there was guys with their skin hanging off their arms and stuff from being burned."
Croy said he was among six people in the mill's lunchroom talking about training when the explosion happened.
"That thing came up so fast, so quick. I don't know where it came from, but it was almost like a cannon going off. It blew through there. It ended just that quick," he said.
It's the second devastating explosion in B.C. in recent months. In January, an explosion tore through a mill near Burns Lake, killing two and destroying the mill.
Burns Lake mayor Luke Strimbold offered his condolences to Prince George this morning.
"We've had the unfortunate experience of going through this on two occasions in the last few months, and we're certainly hoping not to have to go through it again," said Northern Health's Steve Raper.
There was one confirmed death as a result of the fire and explosion at around 8:30 this morning.
Daybreak's Andrew Kurjata compiled a number of Tweets and photos as people reacted to the fire and explosion last night and into the morning.
