A sign of the times

From intergovworld.com:

British Columbia is enhancing the security of its birth certificates with the announcement of a new high-tech format beginning January 2008.

The province's Health Minister George Abbott claimed the new birth certificates "will be one of the most hi-tech and durable documents in the world." The new version will replace the old birth certificate formats, which has been in use for more than a decade.

"Creating a more secure version is an important way to assist British Columbians in protecting their identity," Abbott said in a statement.

--I always found the level of security found in a passport to be on the low side. Espically when people use it as their kids ID when crossing the border...you could have anybody's kid! Get the full version here
