Re: “ID is ID

I've worked in the bar industry for years as a licensed security guard. One thing that is unfortunate because it causes a lot of issues is that the IDs that bars can accept and the IDs that NSLC can accept are NOT THE SAME. As Robin Hood has posted above, the NSLC can accept many forms. As for bars - as dictated by the Nova Scotia Liquor Inspectors - who the bars answer to - the list is smaller.

Driver's license
Canadian Permanent Resident Card
Provincial ID Card
Secure Certificate of Indian Status (If plastic - laminated is not acceptable)

We CAN get away with taking a plastic Military ID (again not laminated) HOWEVER, it is technically not on the list. The reason being that the other forms of ID have security features which can be identified and have been in specific books for IDing purposes. The Canadian military has not published it's features so it is difficult to tell when they are fake. It sucks. I know. In this situation, the OP could have asked if the manager could step in - they or any hired security are the only people who can make that call, because the legal onus would be on them if a problem were to arise. The liquor laws as enforced by the liquor inspectors here in NS are some of the strictest in the country. People will come from other provinces and be shocked that Health Cards, Firearms Licences, Nexus cards, etc. aren't acceptable in a bar, but here they aren't. And in most bars, the Liquor Inspectors come often - mostly on the weekends but during the week as well.
