Private member’s bill to save census submitted

The Liberals submitted details to the House of Commons on Thursday of a private member’s bill that would specifically insert the mandatory long-form census into the Statistics Act. Opposition Bloc Quebecois and NDP parties have said they would support the action as well.

This may be the best chance to get the long form restored before a national election, though Statistics Canada personnel have said that it is likely too late for the 2011 census.
