The Canada Border Services Agency spent $54 million on an App

The federal government spent $54 million building the ArriveCan App.

Techies couldn’t believe it cost so much. So, over the Thanksgiving weekend, two independent techies recreated the app and were done before Thanksgiving dinner on Sunday.

Techies said the cost to develop the app should have been about $250,000.

Instead of months and months and $54 million, the federal government could have bought a couple of nerds a case of Red Bull.
