Re Tory elimination of the long form census: The Harperites, with their mania for deregulation, should go ahead and set up a Canadian chapter of the Tea Party. Harper and his crew would no doubt be welcomed with open arms.

Of course a very detailed long-form census is absolutely necessary for a government to do at all well for people most of what most people ought to be doing for themselves. But where a government does only what governments ought, which is punishing injustice, hardly any sort of census is at all necessary. (Injustice now most often consists in people enjoying more than they can get by doing actual deeds that actually produce what they want, and current governments thrive on allowing or even promoting such injustice.)
