I see it's "All Hands On Deck" to defend #ABTraceTogether, with the Matts and the Minister going at it flat out trying to convince Albertans that the app is just fine.

It's not, and it never will be - here's why: #abpoli #ableg /1
At the end of the day, it's using iOS APIs in ways that they are NOT supposed to be used. _EVER_. This is a hard line in Apple's iOS environment.

I had a similar experience professionally a number of years ago which is illustrative as to why this is a bad idea. /2
At the time, the company I was working with was migrating our product to Windows, and the decision was made to use Microsoft SQL Server (MSSQL) with Microsoft Clustering Services (MSCS) for redundancy.

All of this is fine - in fact both choices made sense. /3

This is profoundly frustrating! 😑

The federal #COVIDAlert app is 100x more effective, is FREE, provides instant contact tracing and LITERALLY all that is required is for @jkenney and @shandro to state that @AHS_media can use it.

Some history:

The #ABtracetogether app was copied by @Deloitte from an open source project initially created in Singapore. The #COVIDAlert app was created by volunteers from @Shopify and @BlackBerry and handed over to the Canada Digital Services team @CDS_GC who now maintain it.
As much as I'm sure he'd love to take claim for it, contrary to what our @Alberta_UCP has mentioned, the #COVIDAlert app is NOT "a @JustinTrudeau app".

Justin didn't make it.

It's a #Canadian app. Built by Canadians. For #Canadians. πŸ‡¨πŸ‡¦ πŸ‘

Last week I decided to dig into the life-threatening Precondition & Excuses from Alberta Health to resist enabling the National COVID-19 Exposure Notification App.

The Precondition and Excuses became clear enough last week to analyze and examine critically against the facts.

Frustrated with the lack of answers, or evasive answers from provincial elected officials, municipal officials and provincial media have been asking @CMOH_Alberta.
