Tony Clement appeals for your help.
“I am pleased that Ms. Finley did not receive a formal sentence. It’s our government’s position that there are other ways to collect useful and usable data than by threatening Canadians with jail time,” Mr. Clement said in a statement. “That is why we will be introducing legislation to eliminate such threats.”
“However, completing the census is important for data purposes so I do encourage Canadians to comply and to participate in the National Household Survey in the coming months.”
