When I looked into the whole census thing, again 20 years ago and pissed-off, I was surprised to learn that private companies contract Statscan to do polling for them. The information is not available to the public on demand because it is sold to private companies in addition to various government organizations.

It's fine to say "for everyone's benefit". I understand that argument. But honestly, jail? Jail. Get rid of it or stop threatening jail. What is this? A gulag?

Yes, gulag is hyperbolic. But so is jail. And really, this "long form" isn't just the paper you fill out and forget about. Mandatory also covers further questioning, for trivial matters. My travel plans or... Jail?
