One last hurrah for control freaks

The 2006 Canadian census has a gem of a question (#8 on the short form and #53 on the long form)...

The Statistics Act guarantees the confidentiality of your census information. Only if you mark "YES" to this question will your personal information be made public, 92 years after the 2006 Census. If you mark "NO" or leave the answer blank, your personal information will never be made publicly available.
