  • Mood:

I have mixed feelings about this:

On the one hand, props to chief statistician Munir Sheikh for resigning on principle. On the other hand, I fear that Tony Clement - who has openly said that Statistics Canada is not an independent agency, and that StatsCan reports to him - will take this opportunity to ensure that the position of chief statistician is filled by someone who is better suited to advancing the Tory agenda than to heading the most reputatable statistical organization in the world - that is, a statistically illiterate, partisan hack.
