PRIVACY ALERT: Why Was Public Health Gathering Canadians Cellphone Location Data?

By REBEL NEWS February 27, 2022

Did you know that every time you went out to hang out with your friends or had people come over since January 2019, Dr. Theresa Tam and her public health bureaucrats were right there with you?

This story was broke back in December 2021 when we learned that Canada's public health agency was looking for a contractor to help gather Canadian cellphone location data.

The program is eerily similar to China's Social Credit system that monitors citizens' purchases, travel, relationships, and behaviors through their cellphones. The government claimed that they wanted the data to help them evaluate "public health measures, and other aspects related to public health response, programming, planning, and preparedness" — or so they say.

Public Health Agency of Canada paid 200k to Telus for cell phone tracking data.

The Agency began tracking users' data in April 2020 and the Telus-related data scoop involved retroactively tracking cell phone location data dating back to January 2019.
