Saskatchewan Scraps Digital ID, For Now


Remember during the Canadian Trucker Convoy when I reported what they’re attempting to pull off behind the scenes?

Digital ID. 

Saskatchewan was among the Canadian provinces attempting to install digital ID while the trucker convoy stole the attention.

The latest reports reveal the Saskatchewan government scrapped its plan to roll out digital ID; for now.

There was enough public outcry to halt the digital ID timeline for the province.

The Counter Signal reported:

“There [were] enough people raising concerns that obviously you have to make that a factor,” said Saskatchewan MLA Jim Reiter. “But it certainly wasn’t the only one.”

To gauge public interest, the government commissioned a poll between March 17 and 22. A whopping 58 per cent of respondents were unable to state they were even “somewhat comfortable” with a digital ID. In other words, the majority wants nothing to do with a monitoring and surveillance system that could lead to a social credit system like the one currently implemented in China.

The public’s aversion to a digital ID seems to reflect the collective awakening concerning the WEF Great Reset agenda.

Increasingly, Canadian politicians are being confronted about their relationship with the globalist organization. In fact, Maxime Bernier and Pierre Poilievre both publicly distanced themselves from the WEF over the last few weeks.

As mentioned, Reiter notes factors beyond the public’s disapproval of a digital ID were also relevant in the decision to scrap or shelve the plan.

Instead of moving forward with digital ID, Saskatchewan will monitor its progression in other provinces.

Regina Leader-Post commented:

Instead of proceeding with a plan to possibly introduce a program in 2023, officials will “very closely” watch the rollout of digital IDs in provinces like Alberta and Ontario to see how they progress.

“We just thought we’ve got an opportunity here to review what other governments are doing with this, and so we decided not to proceed right now,” said Jim Reiter, the minister responsible for SaskBuilds, in an interview Thursday.

An emailed statement sent on behalf of the Ministry of SaskBuilds and Procurement said the costs to develop the initiative, intended to make accessing services easier, would have been significant.

Reiter said the cost would have been in the millions. He didn’t provide an exact figure because of “proprietor issues.”

“It’s not cheap,” Reiter said. It’s significant money that you’re going to want to watch the taxpayers’ dollars on.”

Reiter said he heard concerns from people about potentially implementing digital ID, even though he previously stated the province wanted to make it easier to access government services.

One of the main concerns has been privacy. From its inception, Reiter had said it would not be mandatory.

Although the Saskatchewan government has postponed its plans to implement digital ID, I urge citizens to keep their foot on the gas to resist digital ID.

Once digital ID infrastructure is in place, it will inevitably lead to a Chinese-style social credit system.
