Coming off the heels of revelations that the CDC paid $420,000 for one year of data for the purpose of spying on Americans, it has also been revealed that health authorities in Canada tracked people’s movements via cell phones during the pandemic.
“BlueDot, an intelligence analysis company, prepared movement reports for PHAC using anonymized data acquired from mobile devices. The reports helped the public health agency understand movement patterns during the pandemic,” reports Reclaim the Net.
The Public Health Agency of Canada (PHAC) obtained detailed insights into people’s movements and recorded their visits to liquor stores, pharmacies, visits to family and friends, as well as out-of-province trips. Not only did they track where Canadians went, they also collected information on how much time was spent in each location.
“Questions remain about the specifics of the data provided if Canadians’ rights were violated, and what advice the Liberal government was given,” said Conservative MP Damien Kurek.
The ethics committee, which has had its hands full with one Trudeau corruption scandal after another, asserted that the PHAC should have told Canadians their movements were being monitored and given them the choice to opt out.
According to the PHAC, the program was “not about following individuals’ trips to a specific location, but rather in understanding whether the number of visits to specific locations have increased or decreased over time.”
Canadian health authorities, the CDC, and the British government have all been using cell phone data to monitor and track citizens, without their knowledge or consent. The Covid-19 pandemic was a crisis that authoritarian figures like Justin Trudeau used to augment their powers and test the limits of what ordinary people would tolerate.
The only thing more frightening than seemingly free countries like Canada, the U.S., and the UK going down the road of CCP-like totalitarianism, is that many people seem to be on board with it.
A poll in Britain found that a plurality of people supported giving the government powers to spy on people’s movements via cell phone tracking during the lockdown in January 2021. Conservative MP Jeremy Hunt called for the government to use GPS tracking technology to ensure compliance with COVID quarantine measures. “Daily contact with those asked to self-isolate – using GPS tracking to monitor compliance if necessary as happens in Taiwan and Poland. People need to know how much this matters and if we cannot persuade them to comply at the outset we should keep trying.”
The extermination of the Jews in Nazi Germany didn’t happen over night. It started with gun confiscation, then gradually new laws were passed and new restrictions imposed, always with the promise that it would be temporary.
People all over the world are willingly giving up freedoms and lining up to take an experimental vaccine, not understanding that the closer we move to authoritarian states like Red China and North Korea, the more difficult it will be to return to the free country they once took for granted.
