Like OHIP cards... only better

They did such a great job with those new OHIP cards... I'm sure this will work out just fine...

The Ontario government plans to start issuing new "high-security" drivers' licences by the end of the year, the Star has learned.

The government believes it can convince the U.S. to accept the new licences as alternatives to passports, which American lawmakers are saying must be used to cross the border by land as early as next January.

It has been estimated that there are as many as 18 million OHIP cards in the province, but we only have 12 million citizens.

How much of our health care budget is spent on services provided to people with counterfeit cards. The budget this year is $25.5 billion dollars, a 7.3 % increase over last year.
No wonder McGuinty lied about the "OHIP tax."

Well, I gotta say, although I hate Dalton, I'm certainly interested to see if he can get this initiative through!

You see, if he can get citizenship to be shown on driver's licenses, and if that spread to other provinces, it'd be doing us a favour!

Then come election time, when officials verify your identity (as opposed to citizenship) they can toss out all those non-citizen voters the minute they see their new drivers license!

They'd sure have a hard time arguing otherwise!

C'mon... this is the guy who signed a promise not to raise your taxes.

And then there's...

"One of the few things the Ontario Liberals did, that I could actually support... was shutting down the use of sharia law. Now it seems Dalton is having second thoughts..."

Fool me twice... shame on me.
