Census cuts – Response from the Canadian Institute of Planners

The CIP is encouraging the following:

members to contact their local MP, Click here to find your MP by postal code, or refer to this complete list of Canada’s Members of Parliament sorted by constituency.

* Ask your MP to reverse the decision to eliminate the long-form Census questionnaire
* Tell your MP how Census data is important to you and your work or area of study
* Send a paper letter instead of an e-mail. A paper letter is usually taken more seriously than an e-mail, because many MPs receive several hundred e-mails a day.
* Be sure to cc Minister Tony Clement. His address is:

C.D. Howe Building
235 Queen Street
Ottawa, Ontario K1A 0H5
