Eggs are very expensive in Canada, like 40 cents an egg. As I see it, the only purpose of eggs is to bind it all together, What about aquafaba from a can of drained chickpeas?

Eggs provide a source of protein, fat and a textural component to the dish. With fried rice, they aren't used as a 'binder', but the (almost) scrambled eggs provide a creamy, cohesive coating to the rice grains and help flavour the entire dish. You could try using aquafaba whisked with some cornstarch as a substitute, but I can't comment on how this would impact the overall flavour and texture of the dish.

at what stage do you add the sauce?

The recipe itself is nice, though I DID tweak the measurements for the sauce. I used equal amounts rice vinegar and lite soy sauce (about 3-4 tbsp each) ; then added a pinch of ginger, heaping tsp minced garlic, and about 1 tsp of MSG for extra flavor.

The proportions are wayyy off my friend. We usually love your recipes but this one is bland bland baby. 4 cups rice to 3 tbsp of soy sauce? I think not.

Usually that's why I use the recipes I find as bases, and tweek the amounts to my liking (or add extra spices/flavor)
