Bring the long-form census back in time for 2016!

In 2010, the long-form census was done away with, and we went with a volunteer form. Now that the governmemt has changed during the last election (October 19th), a call has come from the people to reinstste the long-form census, and once again to make it mandatory.

But from what the experts say, it must be done right away, so a petition has been put on at https://evidencefordemocracy.ca/en/save-the-census, and you may sign it if you wish. Although I have found through other campaigns that we have had over the years, that a letter to your minister can be a more effective way to go.
