Minimum Cooperation with the Canada Census
with the Census is the foundation of the CountMeOut project. If we
are to be successful, Canadians must buy into and use, the MINIMUM COOPERATION
CountMeOut.ca is not advocating outright
refusal to provide census data for the short form. Refusal or not to answer the 2016 census that everone will receive, is a personal decision that each Canadian can make. Based on messages we received in 2006 and 2011, and also on comments by the Chief Statistician, hundreds of thousands of Canadians have opted for not doing the census at all.
Once again, the long, 40-page census form that 1 in 5 Canadians will receive, is mandatory. We strongly object to this gross invasion of personal privacy.
Fortunately, Canadians can easily and effectively
register their opposition to Lockheed Martin, free trade and the jeopardizing of
personal privacy, through MINIMUM COOPERATION with the Census. In this way, StatsCan does eventually obtain its data, but the efficiencies which were supposedly to be achieved by
contracting out part of the Canada Census to Lockheed Martin (Canada)
will be more than nullified. The objective is to slow down the process and create extra work for StatsCan, by (1) NOT doing the census online, and (2) derailing the automation of the census data processing and necessitating more human intervention.
At the end of the minimum cooperation process, you will
have met the legal requirement to provide your short-form Census information,
but not without exercising several of the options offered you by
Statistics Canada, or other fun techniques available to you. By doing this
you have the empowerment to impress on Statistics Canada and the
Government of Canada that Canadians will not tolerate the sellout
of their sovereignty and the compromising of their personal privacy. Silence is consent.
This sort of opportunity to very easily, yet effectively register opposition to Lockheed Martin, NAFTA, and loss of privacy, while having a bit of fun, does not happen every day.
LETS ALL USE THIS GOLDEN OPPORTUNITY!
