Coronavirus: Trudeau calls on provinces to accept federal aid on contact tracing

Prime Minister Justin Trudeau claims provinces aren’t taking advantage of federal government aid aimed at bolstering contact tracing efforts. Mike Le Couteur looks at who’s not asking for help, and the barriers facing contact tracers.

“We are there to support provinces right across the country … it is up to the provincial government to roll out the resources we’ve given them in the right way, and ask for more if they need it, because we’re there to help,” Trudeau said on Wednesday.

Manitoba currently has the second-highest per capita number of cases in Canada, behind only Quebec. On Tuesday, a record-number of cases were identified in the province at 124.

In Ontario, contract tracing has all but been abandoned as cases rise in several major cities, including Toronto.

    Most likely this will backfire big time. That will make Trudeau more unpopular and help in him not being elected the next time. That way another party gets into power relieving some of the social pressure. At the same time they will prep the public for what they have in store in a few years. It's only the first time the idea sounds as shocking.

    Pretty soon they will force vaccinations for “rewards” like being able to travel, etc. All under the guise of a betterment for society and the world as a whole. People don’t realize we are screwed. Brave new world and 1984 predicted this control over us. I just thank god I didn’t bring a child into this world.

    Don't even bother contact tracing. Many have contracted it with minor or no symptoms. Let it run its course. It's not that deadly.

    The lunatics are trolling online again. They really are insane. Bizarre conspiracies, delusions, bigotry, and vitriol – that's all they post day in and day out. Sad and pathetic. The 37 million other Canadians are busy with life and working cooperatively with our Canadian leaders. Meanwhile – the rat pack (apologies to the actual animals) is online spewing nonsense. LOL

    Contact tracing sounds like a huge scam to keep track of all the citizens. How long have schools been opened for before they decided to close them down.

    All Chinese are tracked by their phone and given a " social credit score " which scores them and determines what their " freedoms " are. I bet Trudy thinks this is a swell idea.

    I wish we could contain our tax payer dollars that Trudeau and all the other criminals steal from Canadians daily. How about contact tracing everything government does?
