Unzip file from the web zip file folder in PowerBI M query

Hi,

 

I am trying to unzip the single CSV file from the stats Canada website in PowerBI M query

https://www150.statcan.gc.ca/n1/tbl/csv/14100287-eng.zip

I am following all the links, shown in the post.

https://community.powerbi.com/t5/Desktop/Zip-file-from-web-source/td-p/528194

 

But after all, trying still, I am not able to unzip web zip file link directly in power BI. I am getting something binary file and after converting it into the table still, I am getting nothing. 

 

I know this is the known issue in the powerBI, but if we have some workaround to do this please let me know. Currently, I am using the R code to unzip file but I am sure there should be something to unzip web folder after downloading in the powerBI.

 

Thanks
