Canadian PM denounces ID systems

Stephen Harper"Identification seems to offer an easy technological quick-fix for ailments like illegal immigration and terrorism. But what most of these schemes would do is further regiment and control law-abiding people while merely inconveniencing criminals, terrorists, and any other threat with a modicum of sophistication and motivation." —Jim Harper, Cato Institute

The linked story quotes both Harpers, and the Canadian PM seemed more significant :)
