(NewsGlobal.com)- The Canadian government is quietly pushing for a global ID system with the World Economic Forum (WEF), according to newly released documents reported by National Pulse. The two are reportedly formal partners in this project, known as the Known Traveler Digital Identity Project.
The WEF leader, Klaus Schwab, has reportedly lobbied for a “social credit score” system, with restrictions on travel a key component of the program. Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau, who notoriously froze Freedom Convoy protestors bank accounts when they were petitioning the dictatorial mandates of the government, has a history of working with the WEF, according to National Pulse.
The partnership was unveiled by Conservative MP Leslyn Lewis, who filed an Order of Inquiry with Transportation Minister Omar Alghabra in June about the Known Traveler Digital Identity (KTDI) Project, which was officially announced in January 2018. The partnership reportedly followed speculation that the WEF was using the COVID-19 pandemic as a way to push for global ID tracking.
The project has not yet been launched due to reports that COVID-19 caused delays in implementation.
Transportation Minister Alghabra said that the WEF is one of many partners part of the project. The documents read:
“This project is based on voluntary contributions from project partners. All project partners are responsible for their respective costs associated with participation. Project partners include: the Government of Canada, the Government of the Netherlands, Air Canada and Royal Dutch airlines, Toronto, Montreal, and Schiphol International Airport, and the World Economic Forum.”
“Distributed ledger technology, biometric technology, and cryptography,” are among some of the technology to be used in the implementation of the program, the documents reveal.
The budget for the Known Traveler Digital Identity Project amounts to “$105.3 million over five years, starting in 2021-22, with $28.7 million in remaining amortization and $10.2 million per year ongoing to Transport Canada to collaborate with international partners to further advance the KTDI pilot project.”
