Caledon

Information Blackout

Published on 22/07/2010

The Caledon Institute reacted quickly to the census long form controversy with a letter to the editor of the Globe and Mail, published on July 9.  Caledon decried not only the federal government’s appalling decision to replace the mandatory census long form with a voluntary and thus flawed version.  Two additional invaluable sources of data have fallen victim to Ottawa’s one-D ideology glasses – Social Security Statistics: Canada and Provinces and PALS (the Participation and Activity Limitation Survey, the most important source of information on Canadians with disabilities).
