Former Stats Can head joins Carleton U

I was happy to read in the Carleton University student newspaper, The Charlatan, that the former head of Statistics Canada will soon be teaching at Carleton. If you recall,  Munir Sheikh resigned his post as at Stats Can in protest of the governments decision to scrap the Long Form Census. I should hope the move on Carleton's part is not wholly political, but I wouldn't be all that upset if politics played (just the tiniest!) part. Mr. Sheikh is, of course, an expert in his field.
