(LifeSiteNews) — Leslyn Lewis has doubled down on her promise to axe Prime Minister Justin Trudeau’s ArriveCAN app, along with all other digital ID programs.

The Liberals ArriveCAN app continues to be a glitching failure that only serves to grind our tourism to a halt & force symptom free Canadians into quarantine,” Lewis, the pro-life Conservative Party of Canada leadership candidate, posted to social media on Tuesday. 

I have said all along that I wouldn’t just end ArriveCAN, I would end ALL digital ID programs.” 

Under her post, Lewis linked to a May article she penned titled, “Getting Canada out of the WEF Travel Program,” in which she criticized Trudeau for clandestinely signing Canada up for the World Economic Forum’s Known Traveller Digital Identity (KTDI) pilot program in 2019.

In her piece, Lewis vows to “never join these programs or partner with any global organization, including the WEF,” adding that “Canadians did not consent to the WEF monitoring our travel.” 

The ArriveCAN app has been a topic of immense controversy in recent weeks, particularly after Trudeau’s Public Safety Minister Marco Mendicino indicated in late June that the government has plans to keep the COVID-era app — which was initially marketed as a temporary quarantine monitoring app for travelers — around indefinitely as a way for the government to “modernize” the “border.”

“ArriveCAN was originally created for COVID-19, but it has technological capacity beyond that,” Mendicino said at a press conference on June 28, explaining that the app will allow travelers to complete their customs declaration digitally before landing.

Following Mendicino’s comments, the Justice Centre for Constitutional Freedoms warned LifeSiteNews that this “growth” in the “scope of the ArriveCAN app is troubling.”

“It started as a tool for monitoring quarantine. It was expanded to include health data, specifically, COVID vaccination status. It is being further expanded to include customs information,” Justice Centre lawyer Hatim Kheir told LifeSiteNews by email.

“Under the Charter of Rights and Freedoms, every Canadian citizen has the right to enter Canada. The app infringes that right of mobility by acting as a barrier to returning,” explained Kheir, adding, “The app also poses serious threats to privacy” as “Canadians should not be required to disclose personal, medical information as a precondition to exercising their right to return home.”

Much like ArriveCAN, the KTDI has been marketed by the WEF as a system that “enables more secure and more seamless travel that benefits both travelers and the travel industry” by allowing “partners to access verifiable claims of a traveler’s identity data so they can assess their credibility, optimize passenger processing and reduce risk.”

As extensively reported by LifeSiteNews, the WEF is the globalist organization behind the “Great Reset” agenda, a socialist plan designed by wealthy elites that “seeks to ‘push the reset button’ on the global economy” and establish a New World Order that seems to closely emulate many aspects of the Chinese Social Credit System.

The group’s agenda has become known for the slogan, “You’ll own nothing and you’ll be happy.”
