Bring back the long form census

This is what Bill C-626 proposes. Tabled by Ted Hsu MP in September, this enactment provides for a long-form questionnaire to be used for taking the census of population and amends the Statistics Act to establish a process to appoint the Chief Statistician of Canada. It also prescribes additional duties for the Chief Statistician and increases the independence of the Chief Statistician in carrying out his or her duties. A campaign by Evidence for Democracy is currently ongoing to support this initiative. Find out about it here.
