    Either that or just not be at home....

    Wrap plaster around both arms and explain that you have an injury. You have no friends or family who are willing to help you sign.

    Hi Astrid,

    Just thought i would share that I did not fill out my census here in Canada. Many phone calls, one visit, call from supervisor and threat of sending out someone to take my refusal in writing. This was 6 weeks ago now and I have heard nothing since then. The supervisor asked why I would risk going to jail as it is the law in Canada and one must fill it out and submit it. She affirmed that is is really not intrusive and asked for very little personal info.

    I informed her that the stats go to Lockheed Martin who is nothing but a warring company, who then implements the info in the computer program they designed and then Lockheed Martin sends the info to Stats Canada. I informed her I see no reason that this company should have any personal information on me. (my understanding is that Canada, UK, Australia and other British colonized nations are using Lockheed Martin for their census gathering also)

    My next line if they do call and threaten me again will be to ask to see the legislated law that says I must submit information to Lockheed Martin.

    Hope this helps and yes push come to shove, I fully prepared to do a little time if need be. They will look like the idiots they are as I'm a retired female senior citizen. I could use a little time off from utilities, food, gas, etc and the financial break would be a boon

    PS I have worked in provincial and federal penal systems as a counselor at different times in my career so yes I know what I'm getting into and know the ropes so to speak.
    Love and Light Always/Sandy

    All of the avoidance of this won't solve it.

    Often there is no legal support to make you participate, they hope you will feel pressurized enough.

    We had a census here too this year. To begin with it was executed by volunteers taken out of the citizenry ...
    They have insufficient background checked to inquire for such personal data.
    They asked the most idiotic questions like how much mobile phones were in the house etc. I had to answer
    them in 2 different places. On the first location I have only answered the most functional questions. On the
    2nd location we avoided the interview twice. There was only one telephone call trying to get the interview
    still. After we indicated that we were not obliged to participate the attempts stopped.

    Well, see it as a test ... Are you indeed brave enough to say no ? Can we walk our talk ?

    Hi Astrid,

    I have never completed a 'Census' in my life...

    As soon as I recieve one, it goes straight in the...



    My gates are always locked...'Especially to Govt'..!

    Plausible Deniablity is always a good defence...

    e.g.

    I posted it off, because I was not going to be here on the date of pick-up. Let the 'Bastards' earn their Money trying to chase it up themselves!

    Fill in the form, with the most confusing spelling, and the worst handwriting you have ever written with. Make it impossible to read, but legally, you have completed it. Just another idea
