Canadian government illegally spied on cell phone data

Conservative TreehouseComrades, when we permit the government to gather private cell phone data, the government will always gather private cell phone data. In Canada the health officials have now admitted they captured, without legislative authority, the personal cell phone data and geolocation data of 33 million Canadians.

As a result, and a little late all things considered, privacy issues are being raised about the Public Health Agency of Canada (PHAC) buying the location data of Canadian cellphone users to monitor their activity. The agency said it wanted to analyze the movement of people during the pandemic to ensure their safety and well-being.

However, the implications of a totalitarian administrative state monitoring citizens under the guise of pandemic authority, does not make everyone feel comfy.

Of course they did.

If they have the ability to spy, they will.

The answer is to make it as hard as possible -- impossible, if possible.
