    The Conservative party of Canada knows full well that evidence and information tend to have a left wing bias.  They don’t need that nonsense, because they have faith and are RIGHT.  Evidence to the contrary must be suppressed because it gets in the way of what is RIGHT goddammit.

    My best buddy, a Northerner, the other day regaled me with tales of Conservative information-hatred. Not only are they making the census un-mandatory (since, you know, an accurate appraisal of the population might provide fodder for legitimate grievances), destroying a basic function of government, they are also, get this, dismantling the Canadian Archives, because knowing Canadian history might provide fodder for legitimate grievances.

      Next up, StatsCan is declared an enemy of the state and dismantled.

      Followed by the Charter of Rights and Freedoms. Who needs that thing, anyway?
