Reinstating the Long Form Census

I had understood that with second reading coming up last week, the issue was over, but was surprised that I’d not heard the results of the vote). We should still encourage people to support the bill if we want the long form census reinstated and more autonomy for Statistics Canada. The second reading debate consists of two one-hour sessions. The second hour of the debate is at the end of January, and a vote shortly thereafter. So, please do ask people for help in speaking out and contacting their local MP from now until the first week of February 2015.
