A Coalition is Related to the Census

Tony Clement apparently thinks that a coalition is somehow related to the long-form census issue. In the middle of a discussion on whether to destroy the long-form census, this is what he said.
“So let me put this question to ... any member of the Liberal, Bloc or NDP coalition partners: If someone in your riding does not want to complete the 40 pages of personal, private questions about their ancestry or parts of their belief system ... or about state of repairs of their homes, is it the appropriate government response to harass them until they relent and comply?”
This is a typical example of the recent Conservative partisan attacks at the wrong time. In the middle of talking about the economy, Jim Flaherty used the same kind of coalition attack. This really needs to stop so that we can have a rational debate instead of yelling our heads off. This starts with the government stopping to use time designated for information for partisan attacks.
