Although there is big debate as to the actual continuation of the long census form in Canada, I find it difficult to understand why our government
hired Lockhead and Martin, the global security company to monitor and facilitate our statistics. They know everything about everything, illness,
salary and religious preference. And for what? If they continue with the long census form, I think I'll be taking the same stance. NO!
I guess our borders are getting thinner and thinner.
"Census objector given absolute discharge after being found guilty
A Saskatchewan woman who refused to fill out the census over privacy concerns was given an absolute discharge Thursday, after being found guilty last
week of refusing to complete the form in 2006.
Judge Sheila Whelan announced the sentence for Sandra Finley on Thursday in Saskatoon provincial court. Finley, a former provincial Green party
leader, had argued during her trial that she objected to the government's hiring of Lockheed Martin Canada Ltd. to provide computer hardware and
software and printing of forms for the census. She also invoked the Charter of Rights and Freedoms, saying it protects citizens from being forced to
turn over "a biographical core of personal information" to the state. Before the discharge was handed down Thursday, Finley had faced potential
penalties ranging from a $500 fine to three months in jail."
