Justin Trudeau’s Liberal government has spent $105 million in taxpayer money on a contract with the World Economic Forum, an organization vastly criticized for its extreme globalization agenda. 

“The gov’t finally admitted that they have a $105.3 million contract with the World Economic Forum for the Known Traveler Digital ID. Take a look at this order paper. It’s no longer a conspiracy theory – it’s a contractual fact!”, Conservative MP Dr. Leslyn Lewis wrote on Twitter.

The contract relates to the Known Traveller Digital Identity (KTDI) program introduced in 2018. 

Canada’s transport minister Omar Alghabra was unwilling to disclose what specific technologies were being used in the program. 

“This information is not available. However, prior to the deferral of the pilot, the proposed technologies to be used included: distributed ledger technology; biometric technology; and cryptography.”, he wrote. 

“Transport Canada has to date spent $428,671 on salaries and $220,830 on non-salaries […] Budget 2021 proposed $105.3 million over five years, starting in 2021-22.” Alghabra added. 

In 2013, before being elected prime minister, Justin Trudeau sparked concerns when he publicly stated his admiration for “China’s basic dictatorship”. 

“There’s a level of admiration I actually have for China. Their basic dictatorship is actually allowing them to turn their economy around on a dime”, Trudeau said. 

In recent years, China has developed a social credit system based on digital identity which has made experts wary of the dangers of government-operated digital identities programs.
