It is reported on 6 May that the Canadian Federal Government’s latest report shows that during the pandemic, Canadian authorities secretly tracked the movements of citizens through their mobile phones, especially the whereabouts of people going to liquor stores and pharmacies.

According to the report prepared by pandemic analysts for the Public Health Agency of Canada to understand the whereabouts of the country’s population during the virus.

The report shows that the Government has information as detailed as the time to go to the grocery store, duration of meeting with family and friends, time of staying at home and precise travel itineraries.

In this regard, the Canadian Parliament Ethics Committee said: although the authorities deny obtaining location data from mobile devices, and the data collected is only used for “infectious disease observation”, the Government should first obtain the consent of citizens, and citizens have the right to refuse to provide their data to the authorities.
