May 16th was Census day. There is a 8 question form or a 61 question form, we received the 8 question one; but I haven't yet filled it out. From a historical point of view, I can understand the value, but the government's claim is that the data is used to provide services is just a bunch of yada yada to me.

It is going to cost $567 million dollars to process the data on 32 million Canadians. It will also take 8 years to tabulate and analyze the data. How is that in any way going to provide timely services? How are they going to forecast anything? By the time they have the data, not only will it be completely out of date, but another census will have taken place! And this is the first census where you can file electronically! 8 years. It boggles my mind
Who does she think she is?

Sounds like another way to spend all that money for exactly no good reasons. Can you imagine all that could have been done with all that? WoW! How totally useless.
