Lawyer: Ontario’s coming ‘digital ID’ could ‘evolve’ into ‘vaccine passport’

DM

Ontario is set to introduce a new voluntary “digital ID” for its residents in late 2021, which would also be used to “update and show vaccination records.” A lawyer is warning, however, that such an ID could quickly become the norm, and possibly serve as some kind of “vaccine passport.” “While the proposed digital ID is allegedly voluntary, it is unlikely to stay that way. First, it will become normalized, then it will become necessary,” Lisa Bildy, a lawyer for the Justice Centre for Constitutional Freedoms (JCCF), told LifeSiteNews. “People will be expected to show it when they want to travel or conduct other business as they go about their day-to-day lives. Those who choose not to get a vaccine, for many valid reasons, may find themselves restricted from participating in their normal activities,” she said. “The privacy implications of this technology are concerning, particularly if it stores data and connects the details of our many personal activities that the ID is allegedly designed for, such as booking medical appointments, banking, applying for jobs, or showing our vaccine status at places of business. Anonymity would no longer be permitted.”
