Want to note on air that the language options I was offered to take the Stats Can census were English and French.  The Canadian who was asking me the questions was Asian and said that the census was offered in Mandarin and Cantonese but no Indigenous languages – I suggested to her that this was excessively unfair – both she and I are immigrants to Turtle Island and both her and my native tongue is available for the census.  But with about 60 indigenous languages out there to support, Stats Can (and by projection the federal government) supports none.  When Stats Can calls, ask to have the census in your own language .  It’s only right in light of all the commitments the federal government is passing through its collective lips.
