I knew the good feeling wouldn't last!
The neo-cons' explanations for their latest example of brain-dead stupidity would be laughable if the reliability of census data weren't such an important issue. It's no surprise that Harper & Co. would come up with something like this - making the census long form voluntary despite protests from experts and business people. The development of government services at all three levels of government depends on the data collected from the long forms.
But let's not forget, the main reason the Neo-Conservative Party exists is to kill all government services.
We need to get rid of this government, before it gets rid of us!!
