This post is more for posterity than anything… this isn’t a riveting topic, but it reminds me of a time when we were new to Manitoba and noticing all the little things that made the province unique. It’s been a year and a half since former WoMH’er Laurel wondered, “Hey Manitoba, what’s up with the two-piece driver’s license?”. Word on the street was that a one-piece license was forthcoming, but who really knew when?
Well, a new day has come, for I just received my one-parter in the mail. It’s less colourful than my old one — it actually sort of looks like it’s been left in the sun to bleach — and the (laser engraved) photo is black & white. And it’s got all sorts of fancy new features such as Guilloche patterning (yep, had to look that one up!), rainbow printing and lenticular lens.
Well, so long old two-piece license. I kept you snug in your little plastic sleeve, and you served me well. What’s next? Plastic health care cards? Only time will tell!
