Mr. Speaker, is this how we are going to get the census back, one court case at a time? Nunavut Tunngavik worries it will be impossible to decide where to best spend scarce housing dollars. The Métis National Council says the mandatory census is the only way the federal government can collect information on Métis.
Without reliable information, first nations, Métis, and Inuit underfunding will just get worse.
Will the government reverse its decision, or does every group in Canada have to protect its rights with individual court cases?
