Trudeau government’s COVID-19 warning process disrupts people and costs money

The vast majority of Canadians have never used the Trudeau government’s now-scrapped COVID-19 Alert application, True North reported on June 20. In response, Canada’s chief public health officer, Theresa Tam, said in her report that the $20 million program was completely underutilized. The federal government officially shut down the app last week, despite Trudeau’s previous claims that the app could effectively contain the outbreak if it got 50 percent usage.

In total, nearly 7 million Canadians, or about 21% of the population, have downloaded the app. But its launch has been plagued by privacy and validity concerns. Among them, about 64% of users refuse to share their health information, especially data about individuals’ COVID-19 infection, with the government’s tracking app to protect their privacy from being leaked.
