The short answer is no, since that would be violating copyright laws. You can only reproduce a work with the copyright holder's permission.
The rule of thumb is that an item is copyright protected unless it states otherwise. However, under Fair Dealing you could print out 10% of the work without violating copyright if you're certain that the version you are using was posted legitimately.
What are my alternatives if I'm looking for open source textbooks?
For free materials, you may want to look at eCampus Ontario, OpenStax, or Open Textbooks, among others.
