Statistics Canada’s excuse for database outage not adding up: former chief (Globe and Mail)

The Globe and Mail: Statistics Canada’s excuse for database outage not adding up: former chief. “Statistics Canada’s online database crashed for the second time in two weeks, failing on one of the federal government’s most important days – the unveiling of the budget. The latest data outage started this Wednesday. The failure occurred just days after Statscan’s online database of economic and social information, also known as CANSIM, suffered from a week-long blackout.”
