This is my first experience as a committee member. I thought the Standing Committee on Official Languages would be interesting, but probably a bit dull. But it's not dull at all! It's exciting to see Mr. Samson and Mr. Arseneault speak up.
I'd like to know where we are in the process. You say that in theory the tests have been done and we're waiting for cabinet to make a decision. What's the timeline at the moment?

In fact, I think you've already finished analyzing the data you've collected. I think your data is ready, I think you already have an idea of the results, and I think you're almost ready to communicate your recommendations to cabinet. Today, the Minister of Innovation, Science and Industry said he was ready to send them to cabinet.
So you can answer us: will these questions be in the 2021 census?

Since there are two census questionnaires, a long one that goes to 25% of the population and a short one for everything else. So it is the government that will tell us whether the questions will be in the short questionnaire.

Thank you very much, Mr. Chair. I will share my speaking time with Mr. Godin.
I want to take as an example a small community of 3,000 people. Let's say there are 100 people in there who are ayants droit. What are the possibilities of StatCan missing those 100 people in the methodology it has today? Will you capture those small numbers that we're really trying to tease out of it so that we can build a school or a community centre, or do those kinds of things?

I'm just trying to see how you hit those very small pockets in a lot of cases when you have this very broad census program. You're not hitting everybody; you're only hitting a certain—

In some cases you're going to get zero. That's what's really going to happen.

It's not a lot.
My thanks to the witnesses for being here.
My question is along the same lines. We are seeing an increase of about 13%. I know that Nova Scotia has the only school board reporting an increase in the number of students, but what is the situation elsewhere in Canada?

The big question now is about how the census is going to work and whether Statistics Canada is really going to meet the needs of the rights holders.
Have you had an opportunity to talk to the people at Statistics Canada over the last few years? There are the criteria we have been discussing, but you have to see how they will respond to your questions or requests.

Thank you very much.
On Thursday, we will have the opportunity to ask questions of the chief statistician. What direct questions should we ask him? As that song from the 1980s said....
She Blinded Me with Science, they've blinded me with details that are not important.

The questions may have already been tested, but it remains to be seen whether the government will accept them. This is not a question for Statistics Canada, but for the government.
