Tasha Kheiriddin: Forget the census. Let’s have some big ideas | Full Comment | National Post

Dear Prime Minister Stephen Harper:

Greetings from suburbia! I hope your summer vacation is going well. Not that you’ve had much of a holiday. First you take the heat on your government’s massive spending on the G20. Then protesters turn Toronto into a war zone. And now the nation is consumed with a debate over the most arcane of issues: the census.

So I thought I would help you out. Instead of shooting yourself in the foot over these distractions, why not go for the real red meat? Why not tackle some issues of consequence that deserve the kind of debate now being lavished on your war on Statistics Canada?
