Opposition MPs call for emergency probe of health agency's use of Canadians' mobile data

National Post: It is 'extremely alarming' that a government body would use the pandemic as an excuse to secretly collect the mobile data of Canadians without telling them, a Conservative MP said...

"The Public Health Agency is seeking to extend its use of the de-identified, anonymized data. It posted a request for proposals in December, asking for a contract for a third party to “provide access to cell-tower/operator location data to assist in the response to the COVID-19 pandemic and for other public health applications.” The contractor would provide “de-identified cell-tower based location data from January 1, 2019.” The contract ends on 2023, with the option to renew for another three years."
