Canadians just couldn’t contain their excitement when they received a census letter in the mail this week, with many posting it to Twitter.
This Canadian enthusiasm to perform our civic duty was so overzealous it created some technical difficulties of its own.
Not only did it lead to a nationwide trending hashtag, #Census2016, it also brought the Census website down for 45 minutes the other day.
The letters provided 16-digit access codes which Canadians must complete online on Census Day (May 10) – overjoyed by their mail, many simply couldn’t wait.
Have you filled out your Census yet?
