Now you may wonder why am I so happy to see Harper go? Beside the obvious lack of transparency related to the cost of his programs I have the following two reasons.
- The unnecessary changes to the mandatory Canadian census (long and short forms), irreversibly jeopardizing years of consistent data collecting from which we can make informed decisions.
- Prison privatization. Even if it is unconfirmed and bordering on conspiracy theory paranoia I shiver at the thought of converting our prison system to a business model that needs a steady supply of criminals.
All in all I'm concerned enough to get off my rear and get informed and involved.
