American Congressman Brian Higgins spoke out against Canada’s invasive ArriveCan app, claiming it’s confusing and costing Canada tourism money.

“The ArriveCan app and other restrictions continue to be a barrier to the free flow of people across the northern border,” he said in an official statement.

Higgins continues, saying that his office frequently receives calls from frustrated New Yorkers who run into problems with the app.

“My office regularly receives calls from Western New Yorkers frustrated and confused by the technology and frequently changing, disjointed requirements for crossing between the U.S. and Canada,” he said.

“Consequently, to bypass the uncertainty and hassle it creates, many are avoiding making the trip across the border entirely. We have to get back to pre-pandemic US-Canada border management. I stand with municipal leaders and tourism agencies in calling for an end to the ArriveCAN mandate.”

And Higgins isn’t the only one to call for Trudeau to scrap the app. 

On Canada’s side of the border, Niagara mayor Jim Diodati says it’s ruining tourism — in a city with one of the world’s best attractions.

“What’s happening right now is Americans are showing up in their minivan, with their family, at the border, with no knowledge of the ArriveCan app. They don’t have roaming; they can’t download the app, there’s a line-up of cars behind them, they can’t get into the country,” Diodati said.

“…Many people are bypassing Canada, and that’s going to have long-lasting effects on this country.”

Many other border mayors have also spoken out against the app.

Diodati says that despite his attempts to get the attention of the federal minister, “the decision seems to be coming from the top.”

As reported in The Province, with 25 million dollars budgeted in the spring for the CBSA to “support the maintenance” of ArriveCan, it doesn’t look like the federal government wants to eliminate it.
