It would be impossible for the government to re-identify mobility data of Canadians because personal information was never released to it, the House of Commons Ethics committee heard Thursday. Representatives of Telus Corp. and Blue Dot Corp. appeared before the MPs who are looking at the use of such data by the Public Health Agency of Canada (PHAC). Telus and Blue Dot had the contracts to provide the information to PHAC.
