Mr. Speaker, the Conservatives want to spend $30 million more for a lower-quality census.
The data will be based on a response rate of about 50%, which is a far cry from the previous rate of 94%. We can imagine the consequences.
The Prime Minister's anti-scientific action is even being condemned by the union representing government scientists.
Why abolish the long form census? Is it to bury the government's lousy socio-economic record over the past five years?
