The census: Little knowledge is a dangerous thing
As published by The Globe and Mail:
On Wednesday evening, the House of Commons will vote on reversing a move that holds an exalted place in the pantheon of stupid political decisions.
The bill in question seeks to restore the compulsory long-form census. It was tabled by an opposition MP, Liberal Ted Hsu, which means there is almost no chance it will pass. But it should. This is an opportunity to right a wrong.
