Hello all, new to the boards but have been a long time watcher.

If I have posted this in the wrong area, mods please be gental and feel free to move it.

Recently here in good old Ontario Canada. I tried to book a hotel room at a nice two star hotel, for myself and my girl freind. A nice romatic night of dinner, and a get away from the world and the kids.

Now I have done this before back in the day and it was never a problem. They take your name, and information and reserve the room for you. You pay when you arrive.

Not this time, I was told it was law now in this country, that a passport, or drivers licence was needed to be shown at time of book in. And because I did not have a credit card. That I would have to pay a security deposit as well.

Now I can understand about the security deposit. But since when did I need "papers" in this country to do anything. I am disabled and do not drive. And do not travel for the same reason. (Ashburgers Autism/AOADHD and problems with my hips) I have read about the N.W.O. and there obsession with identifying and cataolging eveyone and what they do. But not until today have I seen it in full force.

Now I know people are gonna scream "Paranoid" or "Nutcase" but think about it.

How many years ago was it when no one really asked for picture ID, where you could be annonimous and have privacy.

When did this right as people of a "free country" get taken away from us, and why did not one notice?

Now in my humble opinion since communism collapsed. We seem to be becomeing a communist country. Now is this being done out of paranoia or for some other reason?

Truly alot to think about.

I wouldn't worry too much about it. They just want to make sure that the person that made the reservation is in fact the person showing up for the room. Not a conspiracy in my opinion.

Normal practice in europe has been for some time. The reason behind this is so interpol and local police can keep track of who is where. I had the same problem when I travelled to europe in 2004 as I live in Australia and thought it was strange. Now they do the same thing here.
