There are a number of legitimate concerns in my opinion.
First of all is the type of information being captured which includes biometric data. Who will have access to it? What will the govt be allowed to use it for other than criminal forensic work?
Then there is the associated fines, up to $100,000 if you donít register I believe. Some think these are too high and others think it should be phased in more slowly , with the exception of certain groups such as those arrested and/or charged who should be registered immediately.
There are also some questions about the cost of the implementation given that funds are being borrowed to pay for it. Is US $70 million a reasonable figure for such a system in a country our size or not? I donít know but I would like to hear from those who claim that they do.
