Conservative Party leader Pierre Poilievre said, if Prime Minister, he would never impose a Digital ID on Canadians.

Poilievre promises to ‘never impose’ Digital ID

Video surfaced from Poilievre’s campaign stop in Windsor, Ontario, where hundreds of supporters gathered inside the Giovanni Caboto Club. 

The brief video shows Poilievre responding to a supporter’s question.

“And to answer your question I will never allow the government to impose a digital ID,” he said.

The crowd of supporters screamed in approval, with many rising out of their chairs.

Poilievre’s reception in Windsor was night and day compared to what Trudeau experienced earlier this year when the Prime Minister’s motorcade was met by Canadian and “F Trudeau” flag-waving protesters.

Even Gerald Butts tweeted that he was impressed with Poilievre’s crowd size in Windsor. 

Poilievre’s promise comes just days after two Premiers also expressed no interest in adopting a federal digital ID. 

On Friday, Alberta’s Premier Danielle Smith announced full support for what Saskatchewan Premier Moe stated the week before. 

“The government of Saskatchewan is not creating a Digital ID nor will we accept any requirements for the creation of a digital ID tied to healthcare funding,” Moe said.

Moe further said his government wouldn’t share any personal medical information with the feds.

“This information is protected under The Health Information Protection Act and will remain so.”

As Canadians increasingly look for security in the digital landscape, two major players have emerged in the conception, design, and development of Canada’s Digital ID — including one with close ties to the World Economic Forum (WEF). 

In August, Prime Minister Justin Trudeau’s Liberal government unveiled its ambitious federal “Digital Identity Program.”
