1921 Canadian Census - need help NOW

Elizabeth Lapointe posted the following in her Genealogy Canada blog:

Breaking News - 1921 Census of Canada
A reliable source from the LAC has just phoned me to ask that I inform my readers, genealogists, and others interested in their Canadian families, that the 1921 Canadian Census has already been digitized, and has been ready for release since last Wednesday, 12 June, but it is being held back by the federal government before it is released.

So if you want the census released NOW, it has been suggested that you write the Heritage Minister, The Honourable James Moore, and ask that the 1921 Canadian Census be released now.

Minister Moore’s mailing address is: The Hon. James Moore, Minister of Canadian Heritage & Official Languages, House of Commons, Ottawa, Ontario K1A 0A6.

His telephone number is 613-992-9650, and his fax number is 613-992-9868.

He can also be reached online at, or by direct email at

Remember, there is no postage required for sending snail-mail to Members of Parliament in Canada from within Canada. "

I have just emailed and I hope you do too!! I chose email because Parliament is about to be sent on their usual 3 month holiday!!!! I am sooooooooooooooo sick of politics and politicians.
