Full Pundit for today

It’s worth noting that the Grits do have an “open government” platform, which is pretty darn good on paper — for example, it promises to restore the mandatory long-form census and make disclosure the default position for access-to-information requests — but we never seem to hear them talking about it. 

Uhhhh Mr. Selley?  How does allowing a government agency to force private citizens to answer intrusive and unnecessary questions under threat of imprisonment or fine without informing the public as to exactly HOW they are going to use the data collected constitute "OPEN AND HONEST GOVERNMENT"?

I don't understand, perhaps you can explain it to me.
