What happened when Canada stopped counting its numbers

Bring back fortune tellers?
Five years after the country killed its long-form census, researchers can't tell you what direction the country is going

Hey Plus'ers,  Day 10 of my 365 Day Photo Challenge. Armed with my iPhone 6, I set out to capture a great photo. Today, let's explore some of the simplicities of life, waiting.  Most of us have to wait for something.  Waiting on the bus like the gentleman here.  Waiting in traffic or like me waiting on my new camera.  The resolution that he might as well be comfortable while he waited was a compelling shot to me.   Visit my www.facebook.com/jguestphotos  page to see my choice for Day 10. Enjoy the Page and Like if you're pleased.
Interested in many facets of photography. Looking forward to taking everyday street portraits,...

One of the really nice things about this portal (and I use the term "portal" in a very large sense) is that, not only are the data and developer resources extensive, but the contextual information provided (for example, look under the heading "Plan") is also extensive.  Also positive on the Plan pages: the names of page owners and responsible individuals are given. If you click on a page editor's name, for example, you can send an email! This act of providing contact information is an impressive user-friendly act and is something that can help dispel the image of "faceless bureaucrats" (if it works, of course!)
 
We're debuting our new Data Portal which will have featured datasets, and allow you to explore data by mission categories.

At lunch yesterday I walked down by the park near our house. This is some of what I saw.
