ST. JOHN’S, Newfoundland and Labrador (LifeSiteNews) — The Canadian province of Newfoundland and Labrador is looking to launch a digital identification pilot project, which a provincial minister admitted will be easier to implement thanks to the experience gained from its once-mandatory COVID-19 vaccine passport.
As reported by the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation (CBC), Digital Government Minister Sarah Stoodley for the province of Newfoundland and Labrador announced earlier this week that its 2023 digital ID pilot project will be a “huge opportunity to protect the privacy of Canadians.”
According to Stoodley, digital IDs will help “reduce fraud,” noting that her province will be the “leaders in this space in Canada.”
Stoodley also mentioned that a provincial digital ID system will be easier to implement thanks to the province’s recent experience with its once-mandatory COVID vaccine passport, called the NLVaxPass.

Those who did not have the NLVaxPass, which in essence were those who chose not to get the COVID jabs, were barred from participating in many aspects of social life.
Stoodley informed citizens that the NLVaxPass is one way for people to verify “their identity” on the forthcoming digital ID application, noting that people previously used the vaccine passport to go into “restaurants and bars and shopping malls.”
“So that’s something that we’ve seen now everyone is comfortable with,” she added.
Stoodley noted that her province has already lined up meetings with Prime Minister Justin Trudeau’s federal government to discuss their digital ID pilot project, but said funding for the project remains up in the air.
Stoodley also told the CBC the digital IDs would be optional.
Despite Stoodley’s enthusiasm, many have warned that digital IDs pose an extreme risk to personal privacy.
Even Newfoundland’s own Information and Privacy Commissioner Michael Harvey admitted that digital IDs do have risks, should one’s information be “misused.”
Why not sign up to be lab rats, robots, lemmings, or just good ole idiots willing to give up all your rights as an individual. Let’s let the banks introduce digital accounts with the destruction of cash which will make us all economic slaves to a small amount of Oligarchs who do not have your interests in mind. This is not representative government. This is the first sign on the road to slavery.
