The No-ID card
Having to carry ID and present it to police was a legal cornerstone of totalitarian regimes of Nazi Germany and apartheid South Africa. In Canada, there is no general police power to detain, arrest, or search a person who refuses to provide identification.
Except in limited circumstances, it is not an offense to refuse to identify yourself. It is your right to refuse. What good are our rights if we don’t use them? Be part of the NO ID Campaign. Carry a card and exercise your right to refuse.
Remember, sometimes you have to show police ID
