A losing battle

So what's more sad about Tony Clement's latest excuse for gutting Canada's census:
Clement told reporters in Montreal today that many Canadians have complained the long-form census violates their privacy.

He says his office has received dozens of letters in the past 48 hours supporting his decision.
Is it the fact that he's referring to letters written after the fact as if they somehow offered any explanation for the decision being made in the first place?

Or is it the fact that he can only point to "dozens" of letters - making for less individuals bothering to support his side as there are major Canadian groups publicly taking the other side (to say nothing of the thousands of individuals who have done the same)?
