An Ontario based company has developed a product that will let Ontarians leave their plastic cards behind. There’s a new app in development called eID-me bu Bluink Ltd. that will act as your official Ontario ID card. The app stores the identity information from your driver’s license, health card, and Ontario photo ID card so it’s easily and conveniently located on your phone.
Not only does it make carrying your ideas way easier (who doesn’t have their phone on them at all times) but it also makes it more secure. It is password protected and also gives you a choice of what information you reveal, so you don’t have to give away your address to ever bouncer you come across.
The app was developed as part of a challenge from the Ontario government. The Small Business Innovation Challenge asked smaller technology-based businesses to find creative solutions to some problems in the province. The program was announced by the Ontario government in 2016 in partnership with the Ontario Center of Excellence. Businesses were able to apply to the challenge with their innovative proposals to address public sector challenges.
Not all men sex-obsessed
The Court of Appeal in Quebec province has quashed a sexual assault conviction, saying that a trial judge’s ruling was based on “stereotypes” about the sex drive of young men. The case dates back to 2008, when an 18-year-old woman accused two fellow soldiers in boot camp of having raped her in a Montreal hotel room. One of the accused, 21-year-old Tim Robbins, admitted that he had entered the bathroom where the other accused was having sex with the woman, but claimed that he had left quickly without assaulting her and went to bed. At trial in 2015, Judge Manon Ouimet ruled that Robbins’ testimony was not credible because the bathroom sex would have been “for any normal young man… an exciting scene to look at.”
