Where is the 1921 Canadian Census...Part Deux

Still nothing but a quick note from the LAC (Library and Archives Canada) on June 4th saying the Census will be released in a few weeks.  http://www.bac-lac.gc.ca/eng/news/Pages/2013/1921-census.aspx

Below is an excerpt from Elizabeth LaPointe's blog posted 17 June 2013

"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."

Myself and others have been sending e-mails, Facebook posts and still nothing.  There are a few things you can do.  As genealogists and Family Historians, even if you are not Canadian, please contact James Moore and sign the petition below started by Bill Robinson.

Feel free to pass the petition along to other groups and lets get this census available to the public.

Petition: (You do not need to be Canadian to sign)

Thank you!
