StatsCan is going to tell you all the reasons...or you're going to tell them all the reasons they should do it.
They're probably thinking that the risk of putting in more questions and doing this in the short form opens the door to other groups and other questions. I think that the constitutional right and what we're trying to do in Canada around the two official languages and the linguistic minority is primordial.
They are risk-averse, I believe, in that they would not want to do this because it would open the door to other groups.
That's my take on not accepting that answer from them.
