Unbiased Reporting

The recent Canadian Community Survey reports that gays in Canada make up about 1% of the poplulation.

Thats fine and dandy I guess but this from a Globe and Mail article on the subject reveals their inability to report things in a non-biased manner:
When a number is attached to a gay community, ideological battles emerge, said Michael Botnick, a lecturer on sociology at the University of British Columbia.

"Clearly, from a right-wing perspective, they'd like to see the numbers lower," he said. "From the more libertarian perspective, they'd like to see the numbers more accurate, or higher. So nobody's going to be satisfied."
This supposed expect on the subject says some people would like to see the numbers being 'more accurate, or higher'? Where do they find these idiots?
