Scott will reach out to learn more about driver's license regulation and the laws in Canada. 

We discussed the technical capabilities for driver's licence agencies to access passport verification services, and compared this with passport scanners of two kinds. One kind reads the name to look up a reservation, whereas the kind used when crossing the US border includes photo capture of the user of the kiosk.

Lee mentioned the Driver's Privacy Protection Act (http://www.accessreports.com/statutes/DPPA1.htm) which limits what information departments of motor vehicles can share.  Neither passport nor driver's license verification is possible at this time.
