Interac Is Apparently Down…. Again

After being caught up in the Rogers outage because they apparently are completely reliant on Rogers, though they plan to fix that, news is filtering through via Down Detector that Interac who handles debit card payments for Canada is down again:

Apparently credit cards are still working and good old cash works as well. But that’s not enough to make people happy:

I had a look at Interac’s Twitter feed and they haven’t acknowledged an outage. But clearly something is going on. Thus sooner or later they will have to say something. And hopefully they get the same level of scrutiny from the federal government that Rogers is getting at the moment because two outages in a week and having a lack of redundancy is not acceptable.
