Bring Back old Indian status card!

This petition had 32 supporters


  Some natives like myself do not like the change in the so called "secure cards" so this petition is to put a stop to these new cards and have a choice to have your old cards. These new cards have these problems:

  • Identifying us Canadian but are not, were the original owners of this land.
  • It is not laminated so if you bend the plastic card too far it will snap.
  • It takes 9 weeks to get it back if broken or lost.
  • We just started getting them in some reservation but we never consulted over it, they just did it (like standing rock r.i.p).
  • The band office has no control over if you want the old one if they made them convert already.
  • Unknown thing on the back that quotes "must be returned on request"?
  • It looks like a prison identification where there is no smiling, black and white and the other one you can smile it's colorful.
  • I don't like that we have have bar codes (like the holicost) that people can scan.

 Good about it:

  • No fraud
  • double picture (but not needed for our other cards)
  • no signature required 

So why is if the government does like first nations than why don't they tell us about these things and give us a choice (R.I.P again standing rock) join with me to fight INAC to give us a choice
