A contributor to the Canadian Census Release Mailing List has just posted a
message that refers us to:
The wording is:
38th Parliament, 1st Session
The Standing Committee on Industry, Natural Resources, Science and
Technology has the honour to present its
In accordance with its Order of Reference of Monday, June 13, 2005, your
Committee has considered Bill S-18, An Act to amend the Statistics Act, and
agreed on Thursday, June 16, 2005, to report it without amendment.
A copy of the relevant Minutes of Proceedings (Meetings Nos. 43 and 44) is
BRENT ST. DENIS
It is a big relief that the Bill was sent back to the Commons without
amendment. The next step, as I understand it, is to have Third Reading of
the Bill passed by the House of Commons, following which we SHOULD have
access to the 1911 Canadian census.
I expect that Gordon Watts will let us have his comments later today and I
will pass them on to you. In the meantime, if my reading of the situation is
incorrect no doubt Lois Sparling will let us know.
Keep your fingers crossed that all this can be processed before the summer
- Hello all! - just got home to hear the good news - Bill S-18 has passed today - thanks to all who signed petitions over and over, and especially to Lois for all your effort - and to all who contributed financially when Lois put out the call.Freda Stewart
