Harper's War on Progressive NGOs

A great article by Alice Klein in this week's Now here, which is the first I've come across that actually explains the real rationale behind the Harper government's attempt to eliminate the long form census. I've never bought the argument that it's just an attempt to appeal to the libertarian members of the party (they're a fringe element at best, and who else would they vote for anyway?). Like last week's post, when you read the cumulative list of cuts to groups, or outright defunding of organizations, the pattern is certainly odious and draconian.
