Today is May 16th, the deadline to "count yourself in". I've decided to count myself out, with the possible repercussion of three months in jail or a fine of up to $500.00 for failing to provide the government with personal information used to prop up their regime.
The reminder notice has twice arrived in my monthly visa bill, I've seen the flashy and expensive ads on city buses and in local public libraries, read countless newspaper stories reminding me of "the value" of the survey, which is MANDATORY to complete, and I've received my forms via Canada State Post twice over so far. I lied on the first form, decided not to send it in, and promptly sent the second reminder form into the recycle bin.
Now I am expecting the government's appointed trolls to arrive at my doorstep. The London Fog will provide updates as the story unfolds.
