According to reports, government’s implementation of the ArriveCan application is functioning like a plague upon Canadian travellers, as well as the travel industry in general.

One Canadian traveller is quadruple vaccinated, has not tested positive and shows no symptoms of Covid. Border guards who admitted him didn’t demand a Covid test, or ask him to be quarantined. Upon arrival at his home he found an email and notification in his ArriveCan app, telling him to stay home for two weeks.

The Trudeau government have mandated that all incoming air passengers — both citizens and visitors  — submit their information through their ArriveCan app before entering Canada. Footage of an 86-year-old man encountering a technical obstacle at Toronto’s Pearson International Airport this week caused ArriveCan aggravations to flare up.

“We were given an option to either add my dad to my ArriveCan App or be issued a $5,000 fine.” The elderly man is not technically proficient, and doesn’t own a cell phone.

“You must use ArriveCAN to provide mandatory travel and public health information before and after your entry into Canada. ArriveCAN is not only keeping travellers safe, but is part of our ongoing efforts to modernize cross-border travel,” reads the federal government’s website.

Translation: ArriveCan is here to stay. Myriad calls for it to be consigned to the trash are in vain. Pourquoi? One school of thought(ours) says that this personal data tracking device is, in fact, China’s Social Credit System come to Canada.
