Census Excuse Number X-ty1

Tony Clement tweets:

168,000 felt strongly enough last time about mand long form to refuse on pain of jail. Yet that sample was deemed valid.

* How many of those 168,000 ultimately completed the form, after initial refusal?
* Assuming None, how many were jailed? Fined?

Incidentally, over 200,000 people lodged protest of Stephen Harper's misuse of prorogation in 2008 and they took their protests to the streets. Yet the Harper government considered their concerns to be irrelevant.

One can only suppose that the Harper government makes its policy decisions on the basis of WHO complainants are, not on the content of their complaints.
