And what gender you were when you were born.
I was hatched....do I still have to do it?

Just thought I'd check with the others.
it took me maybe 3 minutes. There is a long form that asks a lot of questions. I used to get that every time. Just luck of the draw.
It is not a big deal. You will spend more time typing in a reply to this message than it takes to fill out the forms.

I actually forwarded this to ctv news about these questions being no ones business but the roommates. See if they get back to me.
You just got the long form. Few get that. What were the questions. I have had the long form a few times. In a row. The short form is a piece of cake.

Questions like what health problems, mental illness, money, work....not about me, but about other people/roommates in the house. Questions that I wouldn't ask anyone . I think someone posted a link earlier in the thread to the 3 forms.

No, sorry. It is your argument that Stats Can is letting hackers in. It is not up to me to prove it. Not how it works. You make a statement and provide proof then I will show you how you are wrong. Yet again.

CRA has had two attacks that resulted in some passwords being stolen. Those accounts were rapidly closed. That is not statsCan.
Stats Canada has had a couple of instances where data was released early. One case was a minute early.

So, Google is your friend? Have your friend show us where hackers actually got into StatsCan.
I await your answer but I sure as hell am not holding my breath.

you continually make these wild accusations and are not able to back them up. So, Here is your big chance.
