The government is trying to assure Canadians that their privacy will be protected.

Justin Trudeau has a message for you if you don’t like the idea of Statistics Canada seizing all of your banking information.

You aren’t very Canadian and you don’t like data.

That was effectively his reaction when pressed on the shocking move from StatsCan by the opposition Conservatives in the House of Commons.

“What we are seeing is the Conservative Party of Canada learned nothing from Canadians in the 2015 election,” Trudeau said.

“When we restored the long-form census as the very first thing we did, Canadians from coast to coast to coast cheered!” Trudeau gleefully boasted.

It’s an odd defence but one Trudeau has used two days in a row, invoke the long-form census and accuse those that don’t like the government seizing all of your banking records as being against science and data.

Will it work?

I don’t think so.
