Remember in early May when we heard the Media Party tell us Canadians were so enthusiastic about going on-line to fill out their long form census they crashed the StatsCan website? Well, it turns out the truth is less exciting than the fiction they were selling us.
Watch as I show you what we found in documents obtained through an Access to Information request that prove Statscan’s problems were not a result of too much traffic.
The website had plenty of capacity to accommodate those Canadians who chose to go and complete the census rather than risk going to jail, but hey, why let facts get in the way of a good story?
The truth is out there if you’re willing to look but you just can’t trust the Media Party.
