    I disconnected my phone. Canadian telecom monopoly costs too much.

    So, no. Practically and in principle, no.

    • There will be a lot of businesses that will refuse your entry without this app. That could potentially extend to your grocery store, restaurants… etc. Guess you’ll be staying in lockdown

    • Richard we will just buy elsewhere or just barter and trade and skip the taxes…..

  4. No dice.

  7. Moving the goalposts (or shifting the goalposts) is a metaphor, derived from goal-based sports, that means to change the criterion (goal) of a process or competition while it is still in progress, in such a way that the new goal offers one side an advantage or disadvantage.

  8. It’s called a tracking device. Complete nonsense. China developed this right. Ask Snowden?? CSIS is NSA best friend.

      Here is a Chinese troll trying to convince you Covid-19 doesn’t exists.

    • Jack Hainings you sound like a Chinese troll Jack. Chinese Trolls do play both sides of the same coin to cause disruption. Still think he’s right Richie?

  9. I will happily download this app. Anxious to move on from this virus.

  10. Ya,once they get a few they will make it Mandatory,so a big no on the stupidest idea so far.y’all got that from who…cell phones will be a thing of the past soon if you keep up this b.s.
