The concern of course is that these new licenses DO have an RFID chip in them.
The new Ontario Enhanced Driver’s License will not replace the current license. It will only be voluntary. However, anyone wishing to get one once they are available will be able to do so. The concerns the NDP have voiced over the illegal card reader use stems from the fact that the license will have a Radio Frequency I.D. tag or chip in it. It will broadcast a person’s personal information to a compatible scanner such as the ones used at U.S. border crossings.
The concern raised by the NDP and other groups is that the chip broadcasts 24/7 and that puts a person’s information at risk of being stolen unknowingly.
