Question 60-16(2) Procedure For Acquiring Government Identification February 13th, 2008

In my Member’s statement I also talked about our lovely drivers’ licences, the ones with the nice little holograms on them. To get those, you need to go in with a picture ID as well as proof that you live in the Northwest Territories, often a power bill. Once you get that card, you would think that would be a valid piece of ID, which suggests you wouldn’t need to necessarily bring in a different form of valid ID when you come back again.

In the situation I described, the person went forward with that nice piece of ID, took it forward. They were told, by policy: “Not acceptable. We need you to bring in another form of picture ID and the same power bill that you brought in three months prior when you got your driver’s licence the first time.”

Once again, I’d like the Minister to commit to reviewing their policies to ensure that those lovely IDs that we spent so much money on creating, buying and delivering to our public would be useful as official ID within the government when people return with those same drivers’ licences.
