Congresswoman Elise Stefanik penned an open letter to the Canadian Ambassador to the US and Canada’s Public Safety Minister, asking them to scrap the burdensome ArriveCan app.

“I write to you regarding Canada’s burdensome border requirements that continue to negatively impact US and Canadian border communities,” she writes. 

“As you know, the US and Canada’s unique partnership is critical to the success of the communities on both sides of our border…”

“We should be working to further develop our partnership, not inhibit its success with misguided burdens such as the Canadian government’s mandated use of the ArriveCAN app.”  

Congresswoman Stefanik further states that the mandated use of ArriveCan disincentives travel, hurts the flow of commerce, serves no health purpose, and invades personal privacy.

“I urge you and the Canadian government to cease this app’s harmful impacts on our border communities and immediately halt its required use,” she concludes.

Stefanik isn’t the first American politician to trash the app and inform Canada that it’s hurting our economy.

Another congress member from New York echoed the same concerns just months ago.

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

“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.”

Recently, The Counter Signal’s attempted to put up a billboard at an airport that reads “Ban ArriveCan,” only to be rejected by the leaseholder in charge of advertising at federally-owned airports.

Nonetheless, calls to scrap the app continue to mount from within Canada and beyond as time goes on. Clearly, the “fringe minority” isn’t so fringe.
