texting on smartphoneA Christian educator and activist is convinced that fear will motivate many Canadians to download a "voluntary" coronavirus tracing phone app that could be used by the government for nefarious purposes.

Prime Minister Justin Trudeau recently announced that the government is introducing a contact tracing smartphone app that will notify Canadians of exposure to the coronavirus. Trudeau says the app will be voluntary and that if someone tests positive, other users who have the app and have been in that person's proximity will then be alerted that they have been exposed to someone who has tested positive.

The prime minister insists that privacy will be respected.

"At this point they say it's voluntary, but they have one weapon in their arsenal, and it's called fear," comments Dr. Charles McVety, president of Canada Christian College.

He points out that fear has allowed governments to close "virtually every church on earth" and lock everyone at home. "Fear overrides intellect," he says.

"Fear overrides everything," McVety continues. "They know how to present these things as optional today, but through fear they will weaponize these and use them for nefarious purposes in the future."

Cell phone apps for coronavirus tracing have already been developed in the U.S.
