Fellow engineers,

        This is not really political; it's of major concern to engineers.

Anyway, I wrote to APEGA, the association that licenses engineers in Alberta to ask what we are doing in this regard. I will let you know what they have to say.

It's been 50 years since I applied to be an EIT and 48 since I applier to be a P.Eng. (the Canadian equivalent of an American P.E.) so thing have probably changed since then.

I agree with you on this.

you'll take this in the spirit in which it's offered, because it's
certainly not a partisan issue at all.

I don't know what's going on now with this ever-increasing vigilance over
the citizenry in the United States by government at all levels.

I've never lived in Europe but understand that in much of that continent
citizens (or subjects, if you will) have grown used to having cameras
everywhere, and the requirements for identification, etc., for everything. I know that in my trip to the Philippines last year I was amazed how often - and for such trivial occasions - one was expected show photo ID. And even how MUCH ID the "citizens" there are required to have for virtually everything they do that's leastwise official.
