The Mystery Of The Missing Canada 150 Project
The creators of the widely mocked MyDemocracy.ca got a $576,500 grant for a survey on Canadian values. It's still nowhere to be found.

Back in the spring, Vox Pop Labs — a public opinion research company best known for its Vote Compass and widely derided MyDemocracy.ca surveys — was supposed to launch a Canada 150 “signature project” called Project Tessera with the CBC. In June, Vox Pop’s CEO told media the survey was being redesigned and would be released some time in the fall.
