IN THIS ISSUE OF THE
CANADIAN SOCIAL RESEARCH NEWSLETTER:

Not a heckuva lot, actually...

My son and his charming wife came back East (from their home in BC) for their annual visit with family & friends, and I haven't added a single link to my website since last Sunday.
But we had such a lovely visit...
I spent last week savouring family time and, truth be told, revelling in all of the richly-deserved blowback for Stephen Harper the Fascist [ http://canadiandimension.com/articles/4486/ ] and the Rob&Doug Ford Circus Clown act [ http://www.thestar.com/yourtoronto/robford.html ]
Moving forward : I'm back in the saddle, and ready to rock. Starting tomorrow.
Gilles

Article in Queen's Policy Review argues that "the implementation by Prime Minister Harper of the Universal Child Care Benefit represents disembarkation from both women’s equality and social investment perspectives, and instead reflects an ideological perspective that has constrained the creation of a universal child care system since its conception in the 1970s, emphasizing parental choice in child care".

5. [United States] Strategic Ignorance (Republicans "seek to curtail or end vital surveys by the Census Bureau") - May 24
(New York Times)

Strategic Ignorance
http://www.nytimes.com/2013/05/25/opinion/strategic-ignorance-and-the-census.html
By the Editorial Board
May 24, 2013
In an age when knowledge is power, restricting knowledge is a power grab, creating the conditions of ignorance that allow bias, ideology and propaganda to flourish, unchallenged and unchecked.

Source:
New York Times

http://www.nytimes.com/

------------------------------------------

By Gilles:
This New York Times editorial discusses the implications of the two pending Republican bills "that seek to curtail or end vital surveys by the Census Bureau, and that could advance as early as next month."

Sound familiar?
In 2010, the Harper Government™ eliminated the long-form Census questionnaire in Canada.

Here's how the NYTimes Editorial sums up the Canadian experience:
"Canada recently replaced its mandatory long-form census with a voluntary survey — and now lives with the sorry results. To try to get an adequate level of response, the voluntary survey was sent to one in three Canadians instead of one in five, which increased costs. The response rate plunged anyway, from 94 percent to 68 percent. In a staggering one-fourth of Canadian communities, not enough people responded to make the data usable."
