Census Failure In Alberta


So I was wondering why I have been bombarded on the radio with Census ads telling folks to fill in their census forms. Its July and the Census was supposed end in May. And then they extended it.

And continue to for all the fine folks living in Alberta. Cause we're special.
1 in 5 Alberta Households Ignoring Census It's an Albertans libertarian distrust of the State.

Like the governments promise that its confidential or the reminder that its illegal not to participate. That rubs Albertans the wrong way, being told something is illegal and voluntary, the contradiction puts a burr under our saddles.

So like the government is going to fine you...yeah all 250,000 of us. Not likely. Nope...

Statistics Canada is considering hiring a small army of out-of-province enumerators to chase down the 250,000 Albertans who haven't filled out census forms.

They have hired enumerators in Vancouver to work the month of July to chase people down. Looks like Albertans aren't the only ones resisting.

Actually, they're running a similar campaign here in Ontario. Dare I say that Ontario has a bit of fight left in it as well?
