Will Canadians who refuse to complete long-form census go to jail? We deserve an answer

Brian LilleyRebel Co-Founder
 

The first act of the Liberals was to say that they would raise taxes on high income earners and their second was to say that they would re-instate the mandatory long-form census which the Harper government did away with in 2010.

Those who objected to the changes made by the Harper government rarely mention that what the government did was change the "mandatory" part which could result in jail time for non-compliance. They instead made completion of the form voluntary.

The Minister who announced the return of this anti-Liberal measure, Navdeep Bains, has so far avoided answering a direct question about whether or not this would mean that non-compliance could result in jail time.

Absent a direct "yes" or "no" answer to this simple question, it's hard not to come to the conclusion that these Liberals are the furthest thing from "liberal".

I would like to share the message i got from the Trudeau government today in the mail – a census card reminder:
“2016 CENSUS
CENSUS REMINDER
Complete it today – it’s the law.
Completion of the census questioner is a legal obligation for every household in Canada …"
I was rather confused , I have to do it “TODAY” but there is no date on it?
And no time limit mentioned.
If I go past midnight do the jackboots come for me?
It’s hostile and unfriendly.
I feel like I just got an extortion note from the mafia.

And I refuse to ever fill out a census form cause I’m a free human being and no Government or Bankers own me as a commodity. I’m not a slave nor do I recognize any Government or banking Institution. The Banking system is nothing more than a big fraud which gives out promissory banking loan notes to money that does’t even exist in real life money. All it is is a bunch of numbers in a computer system that gives out imaginary loans. And then people are slaves to pay back loans that weren’t real money from them in the first place. Same with the Government borrows billions from banks which money didn’t really exist in the first place. But then every citizen becomes slaves to pay billions of taxes in order to pay bank loans and interest charges to banks for money that didn’t even exist nor did the banks have real money i the first place. and then the cycle continues over and over again. read up on this issue. even a 12 year old girl on the news is even smart enough to know the banking system is a big fraud. And every citizen is used as slaves as commodities in order for the banking system fraud.
Has anyone ever stopped and asked has the whole population ever signed their consent to be Governed in the first place. I never seen this huge document with everyones signature on it saying we all consent to be Governed in the first place. I never consented to be Governed so I refuse to recognize this Government nor do I believe in the Monarchy either as I’m a free human being that no one owns. Nor do I believe in paying taxes either as I’m not a commodity to any Government that I did not consent to be Governed by in the first place. Where is my signature that I consented . No such document exists. and all my life I’ve worked for cash only.
If there is 100% DEMOCRACY and we are all free. Then we wouldn’t be Governed in the first place nor would we be treated like commodities like pieces of meat. To the Government we are only numbers to them and they only care about us cause we a revenue like pieces of meat like how cows are traded.

The real reason why all these countries try to make all its citizens to fill out censuses. Is because of 1 very big reason. every citizen is a commodity and they want to know all your information in order to make stock market purchases and trades etc. says it right in the statistic Canada act. no employee is aloud to contact third parties to exchange insider information for stock manipulation etc. Governments want to control the stock market themselves which is why no statistic Canada employees are not aloud to contact outsiders. And only reason they use the term mandatory or face prosecution not to fill out their stupid census forms is cause in reality we the people are truly only slaves to the banking monopoly and we are all commodity to the bankers. The Government doesn’t rule us at all. They are only the puppeteers, but the ones pulling the strings are the bankers who run the world. They want all our info to know how much we are worth as their commodity in order to make stock trades to bankers etc. And if people refuse to give such info they won’t be able to make trades properly. The Government gets its loans from bankers. And in exchange for the interest rate the Government makes trades from its commodity’s which is all of us as citizens ( taxes etc ). And Government won’t know how much its commodities are worth without forcefully making people filling out census forms etc

I thru the form in the garbage where it belongs. I have from day one.the only people it helps are those who work in that department . If I hear another fool tell me its so the government can provide services answer me this ,why do I live in a city that had three hospitals but now has one with one third the beds required.it was built when the long form had the threat of jail time so the information must have shown the need for more hospital beds. please tell me what services this provides or helps provide i can’t see any.its just another waste of tax dollars.
commented 2015-11-09 00:38:52 -0500
Rick, gathering information on the population scares some people, but it is a basic need of a government who provides services to that population.
The Harper government cancelled the long-form census and replaced it with a voluntary survey. Guess which cost more?

Jay Kelly said: “The long form census provides factual data which can be used by the government in providing services to the population.” And what services would those be? Anything of a “service” nature I have, I pay for, dearly! Providing more welfare to deadbeats etc?!

Jay Kelly , sorry but i do not wish to tell them squat.

Yes, Rick Plesnik, “lighten up.”
commented 2015-11-07 15:30:19 -0500
Why are liberals so hell bent on this form?

Jay Kelly said: “Navdeep Bains has the smiling-est eyes of any cabinet minister I have ever seen. Somehow I do not think he is going to throw anyone in jail.
Lighten up, readers!” Yeesh! What an asinine statement!
commented 2015-11-07 15:20:28 -0500
“I just want to be compensated for my time.” Absolutely! I think many of us pay far too much in taxes already to expect to provide free labour and statistics to the Gov’t!
commented 2015-11-07 15:14:21 -0500
Income and rooms in your house? Income will determine what kind of rental accomodations you can find once the Gov’t throws you out of your home to house syrian “refugees” based on the number of “rooms” in your house. The dictator has begun making his moves!
commented 2015-11-07 11:38:32 -0500
As, Brian has stated, the long-form census is intrusive into the privacy of ordinary Canadians. Why does government need to know how many rooms are in a house, if your house needs repair, the taxes you pay on your dwelling, the level of education you have, how you get to work, how many hours of unpaid work you did, etc. As the minister states, he wants to use this info for “social” programming. It should NOT be the purpose of government to socially engineer the populace!
commented 2015-11-07 06:23:36 -0500
Send me the long form – I will fill it out. However the information might not be completely correct.

“The Liberals are a totalitarian regime so I would expect that they will be sending people to jail. I will never forget Chretien the tyrant threatening gun owners with 10 years in prison if they did not register their guns. "

Agreed. One should never forget what the Liberals did on a provincial level either. Ontario – McGuinty and his secret law at the G20.

Reimplementing the long form census is an attempt to prove that the new Trudeau government is a government of science, and that the information gathered from it will go a very long way with both government and non-government agencies. It only takes a few minutes to fill out, and is an issue not worth fighting over.

Drew and Peter, please do not troll on this site unless you have something important to say.
commented 2015-11-06 23:41:31 -0500
“Lefties” often “shy away with facts.” That is the reason for the restoration of the long-form census and the reason the budget has only been balanced under Liberal governments.
Trolls like Drew should be careful on here.

Kelvin great point, now you made the lefties shy away with facts.

Everyone knows the “long census form” is used for gathering cultural sub group data toassist in tagrgeting vote candy in up coming elections – Do what I do – fill it with gibberish, no one reads your form anyway if they see you are a pigment-deprived Canadian – they toss it – no subsidies for majority social groups, you just get to pay for it.

You two liberals forget you bum buddy Justin voted for c-51? Giving your Marxist/Leninist leader that kind of powerful is like giving a monkey a machine gun. What a pair of dupes you are, hang around on this site you might wake up to the truth.

Mark the High River Gun Grab was as invasive as it gets. Never saw the lefties whine about that
commented 2015-11-06 20:00:41 -0500
Mark how is c-51 more invasive if you have done nothing? Try actually reading it. The LIBERAL HRC’s are far more invasive with no warrant or proof or charge.
