Fool Me Once, Shame On You; Fool Me Twice, And I Must be Lorne Gunter

The latest tranche  of census information, like the material released back in February, is from the still mandatory short form.  It is the long form that was compromised by the government's decision.  Lorne Gunter, who also covers the global warming controversy and would, you would think, possess at least a single smidgen of  statistical knowledge, still cannot tell the difference between long and short forms.  Naturally, he writes for the Toronto Sun.

I thought you were joking but unless it is just very bad writing he really does not seem to comprehend the difference between the long and short forms of the census!
